Album Notes
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.

a real variety
This CD was a FIND!! Actually I bought it at a benefit performance after seeing and hearing Ava live.
What fun, and what a performance and I just had to take it home with me...and the 2nd CD too.
Can't wait to see and hear her again. The rarely performed musical theater songs were a treat..... "50%" a real smah
and "Words she doesn't say" such a sweet change from the belting numbers. Come back Ava, come back again and again!

First time out is a keeper
I really enjoyed working on this CD with Ava. I have a memory of reviewing this
CD but the review has been lost in space. I hope that you will join this page and the other page to
KICKIN' UP LIFE and create a note or two of the songs that touch you. Pretty soon all of them
will touch you. I really do enjoy the guitar arrangements. Surprises at every turn!!!! BALTIMORE ORIOLE
is a keeper and WORDS... well, the simplicity is what touches me.

Hybrid Songbird, Take Me Away!
I haven't had the opportunity to hear Ava perform live, so this -- her first CD -- was a magnificent introduction to her vocal and stylistic range, and her rich arrangements. I love every track, but if I had to choose favorites, they would include "I Won't Send Roses," "Disneyland," and "Shenandoah-Down In The Valley." Listening to Ava's gorgeous vocals relaxes, centers and invigorates me; once you've heard her, you'll know what I mean!

David Vergi

This work is on par with old Sinatra.
In this day and age of studio overproduction, Ms. Victoria is one of the few artists who sounds like she's singing to me from my living room: clear and sincere.
My favorite is "Disneyland". When I lived in Vermont I used to blast it in my truck as I barreled around the countryside.
She breathes life into every song on this album with that amazing voice.

A. Larson

Dynamic vocals, brilliant choice of material, this cd you want to play over and
Hybrid Songbird's exciting selection of material; reflecting Broadway,folk,jazz and classic tin pan alley influences is the kind of cd you want to play over and over, each time hearing a different emotional tone in Ava Victoria's dynamic vocals. From Jerry Herman to Hoagy Carmichal to Kurt Weill, it left me wanting to see this artist in a live show. Check out this fantastic cd!

Scott Morris

Life is filled with unexpected pleasures...
Sadly for me, I was unfamiliar with Ava Victoria or her work until a few days ago, but through a serendipitous turn of events I was lucky enough to find my way to her website. Reading about her, I thought she sounded like a really interesting performer.

At this point, though, I still hadn't heard her sing, so I took a chance and purchased her first CD, Hybrid Songbird. Frankly, her performance on this CD was everything I could have hoped for, and more. I know that's a cliche, but once you've heard this album, you'll know what I mean. Each of the songs on here is a gem, many of them little known to the general public. Special favorites so far are "I Won't Send Roses," "September Song" and "Fifty Percent."

If like me, you stumbled across this CD listing and you're debating whether to take the plunge and buy it, all I can say is that you won't be disappointed. It's a real treat!

Hybrid Songbird is Delightful!
Hybrid Songbird is a tour-de-force for Ava Victoria. Disneyland is an old-fashioned Broadway showstopper in the grand tradition. The last note gives me goosebumps, which only happens when I hear amazing singing! My other favorite tracks include a gutsy and heartfelt version of I Won't Send Roses, a delicate September Song and a rollicking One of the Boys. Ava is an amazingly gifted artist, and Hybrid Songbird is delightful from start to finish. Brava!

Pat Abernathy

She did it again and this time with more guitar work. We love having you Ava for
Beautifully done, touching at moments and thrilling in other moments. "Isn't This Better" is poignant on guitar. I loved your first CD and waited a long time for the second CD.Please give us MORE!
