Twelve year old rock prodigy Ava Toton enthrals in latest EP release, Charm School Dropout

At only 12 years old, Ava is already shredding her guitar to inevitable stardom.

Oakland, CA — Ava Toton is an up and coming singer, guitarist and songwriter from Northern California, near Oakland. At only 12 years old, Ava is often referred to a music prodigy. Her second EP, Charm School Dropout, was released on February 22nd, 2022 – or Twosday as it was referred to on social media.

All of the music on Charm School Dropout was written by Ava and she co-wrote the lyrics. Her unique vocals shine, and Ava makes herself known in every song she sings by how masterfully she plays her guitar. The album was produced, mixed, and mastered by Jacob Light at ModernTone Studios in Lafayette, CA.

“Ava has a huge stage presence which we set out to capture in this EP. We set out to feature huge-sounding rhythm guitars, blazing-fast solos, and Ava’s energetic and angsty vocals front and center. To support that, we needed a hard-hitting rock drummer who could keep up with her and provide the kind of kick-ass loud 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.

Listening to Charm School Dropout feels like a roller-coaster ride – exciting, fast, and unapologetic. The band is tight and aggressive while Ava’s singing drives the narrative. This is the perfect collection of songs for everyone who loves heavy music. Ava Toton is a juggernaut and it is only a matter of time before she becomes a household name”.
