"I found a castle in my mind "
- Ava McCoy MOAT
SeDONA - Ava McCoy X FVS
"It’s a song that has its heart firmly rooted in the warm hands of classic folk and Americana, with a warm sound that feels as if Phoebe Bridgers was backed up by Big Thief."
- We All Want Someone To Shout For:
MOSS ON THE CEILING - Ava McCoy
“Ava McCoy explores the journey into adolescence in debut EP, Moss On the Ceiling. A collection of songs that sound like a walk in the forest, the album touches on staying connected to and embracing your childhood self while finding your footing in the adult world.”
- Luna Collective
“With audible grace, McCoy swirls through a delicate bed of low-end intimacy on her new single “Don’t Call Anymore.” Complemented by graceful harmonica and string touches, this burgeoning singer-songwriter has a knack for unraveling sparse sounds that hone a dignified channel of musical expression.”
- Glide Magazine
“Themes of nostalgia and escapism linger amidst developing guitars, ranging from a quaint initial prancing to twangy textural beauty.”
- Obscure Sound
