Ava Earl: Notes from the Newsroom

Singer-songwriter and Weinberg sophomore Ava Earl performed Sunday in The Daily’s newsroom for the first installment of the Notes from the Newsroom concert series.

Earl, a native of Girdwood, Alaska, describes her music as Americana and accompanies her airy vocals with acoustic fingerpicking. The musician has released four studio albums and plans to release a fifth this spring. 

At the age of 15, Earl performed as the opening act for Grammy-nominated artist Maggie Rogers at her show in Alaska. Earl has also staged various of her own shows around the country.

Alongside balancing her music and academic careers, Earl runs cross country and track for Northwestern. 

For her Notes from the Newsroom concert, Earl performed three unreleased songs: “Somethings,” “Coming Over” and “Ears Bleed.”

A ballad where Earl reflects on recently losing hearing in her right ear, “Ears Bleed” will be released with her upcoming album.
