Avonlea Martin is a singer/songwriter from Santa Rosa, CA who began playing music after letting her parents store an upright piano in her bedroom when she was 10. That decision helped her become serious about songwriting, primarily teaching herself piano and guitar before taking up the ukulele. In the ensuing years she has written more than 60 original songs. In 2014, she won first prize in the International Songwriter’s Competition teen division for her song “Your One,” earning a scholarship to Berklee College of Music’s 5 Week Performance Program in Boston.
Today, Avonlea has grown an audience of over 50k monthly listeners on Spotify and 220k followers on Instagram based on single releases alone. Avonlea's upcoming debut LP is entitled 10 2 17, which she describes as unapologetically candid and intimate.
Avonlea is also an advocate for at-risk youth, donating her time teaching ukulele and performing at benefits. The artist is a proud owner of several Kala instruments, most notably her own Custom Kala Elite USA Concert Ukulele. Her home county, Sonoma County, is also the home of Kala Brand Music.
