Vietnamese-American artist Dolly Ave’s music touches on intimate, personal topics over soundscapes that weave between pop, R&B, soul and electronic music. Her Summer 2021 collaboration with rapper Charlie Curtis-Beard titled "Play With It" won 103.5 KISS FM Chicago's #MusicMeetUp 4 out of 5 nights, topping tracks from Alessia Cara, Bazzi, Dixie D’Amelio and Lil Nas X. Dolly and Curtis-Beard’s previous collaboration “Sunlight, Quiet, Flowers” trended #1 on TikTok’s Original Music charts for 7 straight days.

Dolly dropped her first full length E.P. on May 7, 2021 titled SLEEP which garnered her 5 editorial playlists placements, write-ups in Forbes, Atwood Magazine, Live Nation’s One To Watch and two radio adds on the SiriusXM's channel 88Rising Radio and the influential KEXP 90.3FM.

Dolly was recently named Live Nation's "Artist of the Week" and she was cited by the New York Times as one of a handful of Asian-American female "Pop Stars Taking Center Stage". Her recent album release show at The Hotel Cafe in Hollywood sold out. Dolly joined international Rock star MIYAVI on his headline 22-date U.S. tour in October 2021. Dolly Ave is also an award-winning photographer.
