Gritty, moody, bluesy and soulful are the words that have been used to describe Here All Along by Bryan Ford featuring Ava Fain. Bryan Ford wrote and played every instrument on this gorgeous song (guitar, bass, slide guitar and drums). He also wrote the lyrics to which Ava Fain (Bumpus, Lake Street Project) lends her strong and passionate voice.

Ava Fain: Neo Soul, R&B, Jazz, Gospel, Funk lovin’, with a dash of house, and a pinch of Rock are how Ava Fain’s vocals have been described. Originally from New York City, Ava attended the American Academy of Art in NYC. She has written music for and performed live with various acts including Rock Slap Meat Johnson, Family Lifted, East Village Project, Gerturde, and the Joe Armstrong band.
