BRI Ferrier is proud to sponsor AVA through the Sport and Tourism Youth Foundation (formerly the John Brown Foundation).

AVA (aka Sophie Curtis) is an exceptional young singer who has already achieved recognition for her unstoppable vocal style.

Emerging into the Australian music scene like a modern-day Etta James, this formidable singer’s list of accolades is growing.

Each year from 2009 to 2014 AVA was a solo featured artist at Star Struck, the performing arts extravaganza presented by the Hunter area of the NSW Department of Education and Communities. From 2012 to 2014 she was also a solo featured artist at Schools Spectacular, the annual showcase of talent from public schools throughout New South Wales.

Snapped up by Reservoir Records straight out of high school, AVA has appeared on television programs such as Channel 9’s ‘Mornings’ show and performed at the opening ceremony of the 2013 Youth Olympic Games. She has even shared a stage with international superstar Ricky Martin.

AVA currently performs at venues in Sydney, working with new musicians and building her fan base. Over the next year, she will travel to the United States to broaden her creative horizons, work with renowned musicians and producers, explore new styles and continue to define her sound as an artist.

On her return she will record her debut single to be released in late 2016..
