The Singing Saxstress of Soul' - Ava Lemert
Set to Light Up Music World With Her New
Universal Motown Digital and Ava Lemert Music, Inc. Are Proud To
Announce The April 2012 Release Of 12welve From R&B/Soul Artist
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 19, 2011 — Universal Motown Digital (UniMO) and Ava Lemert Music, Inc. are
proud to announce today that Ava Lemert fans can pre-order Ava's upcoming album, 12welve
for just $9.99 exclusively through iTunes that will include a full-size, full-color six-page digital
CD booklet designed by Ava herself. California-based soul vocalist/saxophonist Ava Lemert's
latest CD project was mastered by Pete Maher, owner of Top Floor Music
www.topfloormusic.co.uk, who's worked with some of the biggest Grammy-winners in music
history such as Katy Perry, U2, The Killers and Kelly Clarkson, to name just a few. The best
equipment and techniques have been employed to ensure that the music of 12welve has "majorlabel quality" sound from start to finish!
Ava Lemert is poised to make a big noise in the world of R&B/Soul with her white-hot vocals
and sizzling sultry sax on tracks such as "Ain't No Turning Back Now" a powerful soul
anthem, and a fight song, if you will, for standing up for your rights, making a statement, and
breaking the silence about who you are and what you represent.
Another standout track from 12welve, "A Mother's Song" is an R&B ballad with sweet vocal
harmonies and tender lyrics that come straight from the heart. Ava's lusciously-blended vocals
reminds one of the "slow jams" from great 70's soul girl-groups such as The Emotions or Love
Unlimited. The song was written by Ava to her young son, John, and is intended to be a 'lullaby
for today.' "A Mother's Song," is set to be one of the hits from the new disc with a personal and
emotional punch that is endearing.
12welve, Ava Lemert’s new CD will be officially released to other digital music services on
April 3rd, 2012. It is a carefully bred R&B project with a generous dose of soul, jazz, funk and a
dash of pop blended together as only the Singing Saxstress of Soul can, creating an unmistakable
and universally appealing collection of songs that everyone will love.
What the CD’s Name “12welve” Represents
The CD’s name 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 recordsetting motorcycle racer was the number 12, 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. The latest CD features more of Ava's powerful R&B/Soul vocals 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 will be available for purchase through Amazon, eMusic, Rhapsody, Spotify, Last.fm
and many more music web sites. In addition, iTunes will offer an additional bonus CD booklet
download, designed by Ava Lemert, herself that includes exclusive photos and lyrics with a full
CD purchase ($9.99). iTunes is offering a special pre-order of the album as of January 19, 2012.
