The femme fatale of glamorous melancholia, Berlin-born, LA-bound artist and producer Ava Vegas mesmerizes us with her eclectic, deep-tinged take on folk-cinematic indie-pop and transports us into a haze of darkly-romantic neo-psychedelia. Marrying nylon Americana guitars with haunting atmospheric electronic elements and a touch of Gothica, her rich, spellbinding vocals, ethereal tones, and angelic, otherworldly presence immerse us in a magically crafted world of Twin Peaks nostalgia and sad-girl disco.
Ava’s debut album "Ava Vegas" was widely praised by the media such as Rolling Stone magazine and featured on national TV and radio stations in Germany; and led to her performing more than 50 shows, including an intimate performance at SXSW in 2022 and more at Eurosonic Norderslaag and Reeperbahn Festival. Her upcoming album "Desert Songs," produced by Ava Vegas herself and additional production by Rob Kleiner (HBO’s "Euphoria" OST/The Weeknd), marks the beginning of the next chapter of her exciting career. Creating a micro-universe between heartbreak and ecstasy in a landscape of an outer-space desert and icy beaches, tribal, cinematic toms, jazz brushes, and bachata-like Latin rhythms all melt into the electronic euphoria that is dusted with powerful, dreamy vocals. We begin our journey into her enigmatic, cinematic world with focus singles "Falling", "Swimming Pool" and "Pleasure Pilgrim."
"Whenever I write a new song, I first see the world it's taking place in. Suddenly I am in a room or a landscape; I feel the light and temperature on my skin, I take in all the sensations and smells of the place, and I know what relationship, feeling, or situation in my life this place stands for and how to rebuild it in lyrics and melodies. That's how I craft a song."
Ava Vegas grew up in a small medieval town in the German mountains and on the Spanish island Ibiza, famous for its techno clubs and wild hippie history. With a master's degree in architecture from the University of the Arts Berlin and has worked as a model, Ava Vegas constantly fluctuates between music, the arts, and fashion. She has surrounded herself with collaborators and supporters that help broaden her artistic vision. Vogue-photographer Tereza Mundilová shot her infamous Iceland video for "Falling." Designers and reputable stylists equip her with her signature surreal stage outfits, and fashion brands, and legendary musicians such as David J from Bauhaus invite her to perform at their events.
