Jayne Ava Drops New Single “Something There”!

jayne ava

With an extensive background in theatre arts, it comes as no surprise that alternative-pop artist, Jayne Ava is a master at storytelling in her well-crafted pop songs. Her new single, “Something There” is a fresh dance hit with passionate sentiments weaved throughout, along with lust and heartbreak. “Something There” is now available to download on iTunes.

Inline with Jayne Ava’s previous efforts, “Something There” is a party anthem with an up-tempo synth beat, which sticks with you long after your first introduction. While the song is incredibly danceable, it tells a story of longing and rejection from the perspective of a frustrated admirer. Filled with infatuation for a character that denies the chemistry they share, Ava quickly has you singing along to the catchy hook, “there’s gotta be something there,” the central theme of the song. When asked about the message, Ava describes it as “that moment when you don’t know if you’re looking too far into things or obsessing over certain details and realize the whole thing may just be in your head.” Ava commands your attention with striking and powerful vocals that resonate beautifully with the synth accompaniment. “Something There” was produced by the Los Angeles based music production/songwriting team, The Prodigal. The Prodigal is an American production team, composed of Adrian Jones, Dante Reese, Aaron Zepeda and Joe Crow, who have collaborated with legends such as Graham Edwards (The Matrix production team), Asia Monet Ray (Dance Moms) and William Belli and Courtney Act from LOGO’s RuPaul’s Drag Race.

Inheriting a deep passion for music from her parents, Jayne Ava cites influences an eclectic pop assortment in artists like Patti LaBelle, Prince, Queen, P!nk and Alanis Morissette. She started performing in musical theatre at a young age and began attending a performing arts school in the 6th grade. This path led her into a prestigious musical theatre program in Toronto, Ontario. After graduating college, the driven artist moved to Los Angeles to pursue her dreams and began her musical career. Ava has not only performed to sold out crowds, but was savvy enough to organize cross promotion with other emerging acts to finance elaborate live performances including lighting, sound and dancers. Given her talent and entrepreneurial skills, it’s no surprise that she is getting attention from music writers at outlets such as CNN, Music Connection Magazine, EILE Magazine, and more.

Following the release of her previous single, “March,” “Something There” continues a thread of captivating electronic pop music. Jayne Ava has quickly made a name for herself and proves to be a star on the rise. Be sure to download “Something There” on iTunes today and stay in the loop by visiting her Facebook page or www.JayneAva.com!

New Movie, ‘Grantham & Rose’, Starring Jake T. Austin, Premieres February 10th!


MarVista Digital Entertainment (MVDE) kicks off the month of February with the coming-of-age road tripper GRANTHAM & ROSE, starring Jake T. Austin (Wizards of Waverly Place, The Fosters), Golden Globe Award-nominee Marla Gibbs (Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Witness Protection, The Jeffersons), and Gotham Award-winner Tessa Thompson (Creed, Selma, Dear White People).

Putting a fresh new twist on the pillar of American cinema–the road trip movie–MVDE’S GRANTHAM & ROSE explores the unique relationship between a tough teen in incarceration and the feisty, elderly volunteer determined to connect with him.  Jake T. Austin stars as Grantham, a tough, tattooed 17-year-old who has just entered juvenile detention. Clashing with his fellow inmates, he’s noticed by Rose (Marla Gibbs), an elderly volunteer who mentors some of the boys. Just as tough, but also wise and unpredictable, Rose recognizes something special in Grantham and offers him an outrageous proposal–accompany her on an undisclosed journey, and she’ll spring him from the detention facility. At first, Grantham thinks Rose is crazy.  Crazy like a fox, Rose sneaks him out of detention under everyone’s noses and off they go. Along the way, the two clash ferociously, as well as change each other in ways they could never have anticipated. Tessa Thompson plays Wallis, a wayward girl with her own set of issues that joins the unexpected traveling companions and presents a potential love interest for Grantham.  Grantham & Rose is directed by Kristin Hanggi (Rock of Ages) from a script written by Ryan Spahn (He’s Way More Famous Than You) who also appears in the film, and is executive produced by Michael Urie who is best known for his roles in Partners and Ugly Betty.  The film was an Official 2014 Selection of New York No Limits Film Series and received two nominations at the Cleveland International Film Festival, as well as a Jury Award Nomination at the Lighthouse International Film Festival.

Grantham & Rose premieres on February 10, 2015. It will be available on Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, Vimeo and Vudu, as well as on demand with AT&T, Charter, Comcast, Cox, Time Warner Cable and Vubiquity.
