American prodigy Ava Toton releases acclaimed rock EP "Charm School Dropout"
Ava Toton is an up-and-coming singer, guitarist and songwriter from Northern California, Oakland. At just 12 years old, Ava is often referred to as a music prodigy. Her second EP "Charm School Dropout" is available on all streaming platforms.
All songs on Charm School Dropout were written by Ava and she co-wrote the lyrics. Her unique vocals shine through, and Ava becomes known in every song she sings for the way she masterfully plays her guitar. The album was produced, mixed and mastered by Jacob Light at ModernTone Studios in Lafayette, CA.
“Ava has a huge stage presence that we set out to capture on this EP. We set out to deliver great sounding rhythm guitars, incredibly fast solos and Ava's energy and angst front and center vocals. To support that, we needed a hard-hitting rock drummer who could keep up with her and provide the kind of clattering drums we had in mind. We were lucky to have Gideon Berger (Useless ID, War Bison, Kill The Drive), one of the busiest session drummers in the Bay Area, come on board and play drums for us. Listening to Charm School Dropout feels like a roller coaster ride - thrilling, fast-paced and unapologetic. The band is tight and aggressive as Ava's singing drives the narrative. This is the perfect music collection for everyone who loves heavy music. Ava Toton is a giant and it's only a matter of time before she becomes a household name." - (Jacob Light, Charm School Dropout Producer).
What makes Ava Toton and her discography so unique is the fact that Ava is unapologetic in all of her songs. It never occurs to the listener that the masterful art before them is by so young an artist. On what is already her second EP, Ava Toton has already become a huge inspiration to rockers everywhere, young and old. She wants to show the world that rock and roll is far from dead, and introduce this music to her generation.
Ava came up with her first EP (A.V.A.) during the COVID-19 lockdown. Going crazy, she spent time writing her songs and recording demos. In her sophomore year of COVID, she wrote the Charm School Dropout EP. After a 2 year hiatus from performing, Ava Toton is excited to perform live again. She can't wait to go on mini-tours this summer to promote her original music.
