Ava Earl, a prolific 18 year old songwriter hailing from the small mountain town of Girdwood, Alaska, has released the third single and title track from her forthcoming album titled The Roses which will be available on July 23rd. “The Roses,” in Earl’s own words, was written “about a friend of mine a few years ago. She and I have actually drifted apart since then, so when I recorded it, it was in a different light than I originally intended.” She continues, “At the time, I was struggling to figure out why our relationship was rocky, and the first part of the song is about me blaming myself. It took me a long time to realize that some people can be part of your life without having control over your emotions.” Ava is wise beyond her years, writing music and expressing emotions that truly show off her maturity and appreciation for life’s moments.
The Roses was recorded in Nashville and produced by JT Nero, one half of the Americana-outfit, Birds of Chicago and features hauntingly beautiful background vocals from Allison Russell and Awna Teixeira.
Today, Underground Music Collective premiered the new single expressing how “People change, circumstances change and, with them, so do friendships. These evolutions can be confusing without proper context, and Ava Earl is here to help us make sense of them with her latest single, ‘The Roses’.” Earl uses her music as a way to dissect and understand some of the hardships we may go through in life.
Amplify Music Magazine pointed out in a recent interview that, “Earl has always been drawn to powerful lyrical storytellers, which has weaved into her own lyrical consciousness. Endlessly inspired by and propelled by community found through music, Ava has always put herself in spaces to find and nurture that inter-musical connection and camaraderie.”
An engaging performer, Earl thrives in a live concert setting, drawing audiences in with her music and stories. Highlight performances over the years include opening dates for Maggie Rogers, Rhett Miller, and Tim Easton.
