Watch List: Discover the Soul of AVA LILY
A youtube cover can assist you in getting to the right eyes and ears... This is the case for AVA LILY - a 23 year old singer/songwriter from Bristol who made her debut with a cover of "I Can't Make You Love Me" by Bonnie Rait. The track was picked up by noteworthy producer Naughty Boy and instantly, Ava's hand was taken into the journey of her career.
She's finally released her first piece of original music, and it comes in the form of "Painkiller," a beautifully crafted single that emphasizes the true talent that Ava possesses. Her vocal performance is a pristine one at that - it's no wonder Naughty Boy made immediate association. "Painkiller" has a groovy and old-feeling beat that will take you back in time. The nostalgia is alluring yet the sound is fresh and new. Gritty, sultry vocals slide over top of a perfectly pocketed rhythm section and distant strings to bring you a track all about self destruction.
‘The whole song is very self-destructive and basically me thinking I'm hurting loads of people but in reality I'm just hurting myself.. It's all just numbin’
