Pop country singer and songwriter Ava Rowland world premiered a new video Friday for "California Gypsies" on YouTube. Showcasing Ava's dynamic vocal abilities, the video was shot on-location in and around Malibu and Beverly Hills, California, and was directed by Josh Sikkema.
"California Gypsies" is the third release from Ava's 2018 EP, Polaroid Picture, and is likely it's most upbeat and feel good melody the up-and-coming pop-country singer has released to date.
The new song and video follows Ava's May release of "Exit Sign," a tune that Ava describes as her "most personal song on the EP I wrote, because it deals with the complexities of an abusive relationship I was in."
Polaroid Picture was produced by well-known Nashville songwriter Britton Cameron, whose tour credits include Toby Keith, Hootie and the Blowfish and Leann Rimes. On working with Cameron to bring the song to life, Rowland says it was a thrill being in the studio with him.
"He taught me a lot during recording. It was a truly educational experience, and I feel I am the better for it," says Rowland.
When Ava isn't working on music, she can be found advocating Rachel's Challenge, a program on anti-bullying, and looking for the best in others while treating them with compassion. The organization was founded in the memory of Columbine
High School shooting victim Rachel Scott.
