Ash Avery delivered exactly what we needed to continue our week on the perfect note, and it is a song entitled “Buddafly”.
Ash Avery’s voice captivated us from the first note by delivering smooth, chill vocal performances, haunting and infectious. The singer who grew up on the south coast of England offers an air of nature, adventure and freedom through “Buddafly”.
The instrumentation between folk, hints of blues and melancholic melodies creates a pleasant atmosphere with addictive feelings. We had a conversation with Ash Avery: discover it below, but first of all, dive into the splendid “Buddafly”:
Welcome to our redaction we are glad to have you today. Could you introduce yourself t our readers and tell us how you started to make music?
When I was 18, living in Australia I started to learn to play the didgeridoo, some years later after travelling the world for a few years I returned to the UK where I was working as the cable guy while driving around all day in my van I started to sing alone while driving, just humming and feeling the vibrations, I then started to teach my self some basic chords on the guitar and one thing lead to another, some years later when I moved to Peru I found myself in the amazon jungle drinking hallucinogenic plants for healing purposes my voice started to open more and music started to move more deeply through me. in 2017 one day I woke up and decided music was wanted I wanted to do. That’s kind of the story in a nutshell.
What inspires you to write and create?
Life, in general, inspires me to write music, I love to write uplifting music and to share some positive vibes but sometimes life is heartbreaking and difficult so other emotions are expressed through my music. I am inspired by love and life and love for life.
Do you have a specific creative process?
hahaha my creative process is kinda all over the place. Buddafly was recorded at the Garden Of Peace and was one of the first songs I ever produced by myself, it Literally just poured out of me, I can probably say it was the easiest songs I have ever written, I used my iPhone 6 plus and a boss loop station, a basic Sure sm58 mic, garage band also had a little midi to help create some other sounds. normally ill write a song using my guitar maybe just a chorus or a couple of lines, the loop station has really been a great tool for creating music.
Can you share a few words about your song “Buddafly”?
I went to Bali and filmed a video clip for Buddafly and it was really fun.
What can we expect from you in the future?
I have some big projects lined up for the future, currently on my way to record a new music video for a song called “love yourself”, this song and video is dedicated to raising awareness around mental health issues, it’s going to be really great as I have a really great team behind me for this project, once that project is done, I will start to work on releasing some other music that I recorded a year ago in Australia with two Australian producers, there’s a couple of videos to go with those songs so I need to wait until I have the money to fund those clips, and there’s also another track that I am working with currently with a guy from LA, so I feel blessed and I am excited about the future and getting more music out into the world.
