Ava Toton Releases Sophomore EP ‘Charm School Dropout’

You may not have heard of her… yet, but Ava Toton is an up-and-coming singer, guitarist, and songwriter from Oakland, CA. At just 12 years old, Ava has been referred to as a music prodigy and she has just released her second EP, entitled Charm School Dropout, out now on all streaming platforms.

All songs on Charm School Dropout were written by Ava during the second year of the COVID-19 pandemic and she also co-wrote the lyrics. The album was produced, mixed and mastered by Jacob Light at ModernTone Studios in Lafayette, CA.

Jacob had the following to say about the budding star and her latest release:

“Ava has a huge stage presence that we set out to capture on this EP. We set out to deliver great sounding rhythm guitars, incredibly fast solos and Ava’s energy and angst front and center vocals. To support that, we needed a hard-hitting rock drummer who could keep up with her and provide the kind of clattering drums we had in mind. We were lucky to have Gideon Berger (Useless ID, War Bison, Kill The Drive), one of the busiest session drummers in the Bay Area, come on board and play drums for us…. The band is tight and aggressive as Ava’s singing drives the narrative… Ava Toton is a giant and it’s only a matter of time before she becomes a household name.”
