This week Addicted is crushing on Ava Gold!
A musician from a young age, Ava had her first violin lesson at age 3 and never looked back. A singer, composer and multi-instrumentalist, she’s one of those natural born talents, a person truly born to make music.
When I came across Ava Gold’s music, I was immediately hooked. I’ve always been a fan of a powerful female voice, but especially once with raw, emotional force behind it; the kind of voice that will crack unapologetically as it forces itself to its limits. To me, that shows a singer that isn’t afraid to be vulnerable, but who is willing to sing her heart out, no matter how loud, how hard, or how scary that may be. That’s the kind of voice Ava Gold has. God bless our dear Amy Winehouse for influencing a new generation of singers, as Ava is definitely one of them. Equal parts blues, rock, vintage pop and soul, her music is addictive. Take a listen to “I wish you would” below:
A passionate person all around, I knew Ava would have a very interesting romantic perspective. Will you agree? Read on to find out!
What is the first thing that you notice about a potential love interest?
His smile and the way he looks at me.
What is the best piece of romance advice you have ever received?
Everyone is responsible for their own happiness. Meaning, you shouldn’t enter into a relationship or anything for that matter, hoping that person or thing will fill the void. That’s a lot of pressure.
What’s your instant deal breaker?
Lying. It is love’s silent killer.
If there was one piece of advice you could give to other men/women out there, what would it be?
Just be yourself!! The truth always comes out anyway, so you might as well lead with that. Trust me. You’ll save yourself a lot of time and a lot of heartache. The other thing I would say about this is that no matter how romantic and flowery a person might profess his love, nothing compares to the power of what they actually do.
How do you keep the romance alive in your relationship?
I think the most important thing is to keep rediscovering the other person. A lot of times (especially after being together for a long time), it’s easy to take the other person for granted or think we know them and then at a certain point, we stop seeing them or we stop listening. But as we all know, we are constantly growing, constantly changing and evolving. So if we can just stay curious about whoever we are with, the relationship will always blossom.
