by Ava Lemert
12welve, Ava Lemert’s new album released on April 3rd, 2012. It is a carefully bred R&B project with a generous dose of soul, jazz, funk and dash of pop blended together as only the Singing Saxstress of Soul can, creating a unmistakable and universally appealing collection of songs that everyone will love.
What the album's title “12welve” Represents:
"12welve" represents more than the year 2012. It actually is a tribute to her Dad, Bob Sirkegian, who was the pivotal inspiration for her new CD. Sirkegian’s number as a record-setting motorcycle racer was the number 12x, and it has always been a lucky number in her household growing up.
The name 12welve also represents her breakthrough album in the year 2012 as she returns to her own style of R&B/Soul music, linking contemporary R&B with her Jazz background and catchy Pop sensibilities. Elegantly, the album also contains 12 tracks that feature more of Ava's vesatile, soulful voice while keeping her instrument of choice —the saxophone— boldly represented throughout the album. It is a unique style with elements of "old school" Motown R&B with contemporary production techniques and a dash of jazzy sophistication.
12welve is now available worldwide in both digital mp3 format through Amazon, iTunes, eMusic, Rhapsody, Spotify, Last.fm and many more digital music web sites. A special pre-order through iTunes will include a six-page full color digital CD booklet with photos and lyrics with a full CD purchase ($9.99). Physical CDs are exclusively available through Amazon.com and fulfilled by Amazon, thus the album qualifies for special offers and super saver shipping from Amazon.com.
