Reviews of Charlene Ava

    Charlene is a true pro! We've done many sessions together over the years and have landed several commercials together. She's one of the few session singers that can nail the brief exactly how the client asks but still put an artistic spin on it and make it her own. Highly recommend her!

  • Default-avatar7 months agoby

    I can truly say that Charlene is a very unique and true talent. Not only does she have a beautiful instrument in her voice but she also brings a very cool sensibility and expression to her work because she is an artist. I always love hearing what she is up to because I know it's going to be well performed done and cool!

    Charlene is incredible! She is my go to singer for any project I'm working on, no matter the genre. I've literally had hundreds of sessions with her and have never been dissatisfied. She can adapt her voice to any style and is extremely easy to get along with. Charlene is at the very top of her craft and I've been extremely lucky to have met her.

Interview with Charlene Ava

What are you working on at the moment?
I'm working on my own album at the moment. :-)
What's your 'promise' to your clients?
You will like the results very much.
If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
Mic and a big amp and an electric guitar so I can sing my heart out as loud as I want.
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
I have been doing this 14 years! And I love it.
Which artist would you like to work with and why?
Radiohead! I just love them.
What do you bring to a song?
Performance, emotion. This is a very important ingredient that a lot recording artists forget about. It's not just about the technical skill, it's about bringing the meaning of the song alive.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
I work with many big production houses in NYC, LA, London and all over the world.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
I do lots of song demos and jingle recordings. I'm good at putting that sparkle on your recording so that you can pitch it to win it!
