21-year-old singer songwriter AVE is an independent pop artist who uses her musical platform to raise awareness for social issues. AVE debuted with her single “Last Song I’m Writing” in 2019, produced out of Nashville, Tennessee, where she studies Music Business and Songwriting at Belmont University. At the end of 2020, AVE released Burn Book, a concept-based EP that quickly struck attention with media and listeners. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, AVE has been using her platform to host monthly virtual writers rounds via Zoom for independent songwriters. AVE kicked off the new year with her podcast series "Popstar-in-Training," a podcast discussing resources, marketing tools, and advice for up-and-coming artists. Through her music, AVE has partnered with several social platforms such as the #MeTooMovement, the What I Be Project, as well as socio-musical forum, Society of Sound, all of which have furthered her presence as a rising artist and social advocate.
