Hi there! My name is Ava Shulman. I’m 18 years old and a soon to be graduate from Redwood High School in Larkspur, CA. I’ve grown up close by in Mill Valley, where I began taking vocal lessons with Lynn at the age of 12. It has been an incredible six years working with her, and I have done multiple performances alongside her other multi-talented students, as well as open mic performances at Sweetwater Music Hall. I also sang open mic at the Hopmonk Tavern, where I had the pleasure of performing my own thirty minute tribute set to my inspiration, Amy Winehouse. My proudest accomplishment has been getting to work with Narada Michael Walden as a singer in his annual Christmas show for the past two years; last year, Narada awarded me the “Rising Star Award” onstage, which was truly a dream come true. Currently some artists I’ve felt particularly inspired by lately are Lady Gaga, Kacey Musgraves, Harry Styles, Coldplay, and Ms. Lauryn Hill.
