Hybrid Songbird

Ava Victoria

Musical Theater; Cabaret; vocals & guitar; standards, Pop

Hybrid Songbird reflects Ava's own surprising nature with its mix of bluesy guitar, folk, poignant ballads, and classic showtunes. Though most of the Musical Theater vocals are accompanied on piano there is one Musical Theater song, "Words She Doesn't Say" and one Movie song, "Baltimore Oriole" arranged and played on guitar by Ava.

An interview at http://www.budandtravis.com warmly tells of Ava's love of guitar and vocals and her years with Bud Dashiell ( Bud and Travis from Warner Bros. Records) in Westwood,CA..

"I Won't Send Roses", accompanied by world renown vocal teacher, Edward Sayegh, has a lyric rewrite from Jerry Herman himself for Ava's recording. She's the first woman to record this song with this lyric rewrite.

Hybrid Songbird Kickin' Up Life

Ava Victoria

Standards, easy listening, musical theater, as well as Latin and Celtic pop.

Ava Victoria, the Hybrid Songbird, once again lets loose her ecclectic tastes.
CD 2, KICKIN' UP LIFE, following CD 1, HYBRID SONGBIRD, with its mix of nylon string finger style guitar, rhythm folk guitar, poignant ballads, and classic showtunes on both guitar and piano is a real mix. There's a nice selection here of tunes with guitar, harmonica, accordion, cello, English horn. The piano selections have accordion, trombone and cello and French horn. The arrangements are unexpected, some soothing and others driving. You decide what serves your mood at any given time. You won't be disappointed. Each tune is a surprise!
