Interview With Avasa Love
Living Wholly is honored to celebrate Avasa and Matthew and the celestial music they contribute to this world. They played at our Love event on February 24th and rocked the house. It was such a blessing to have them play inspirational music while we discussed the subject of love with amazing key note speakers. These two souls are the essence of love.
In the fall of 2008, Avasa and Matthew first connected in Northern California, It was an instantaneous recognition of love, and soon after discovered they shared a devotion to music. They married October 2nd, 2010, and two weeks later released their first EP ‘Love is King, Love is Queen’, produced by Robin Livingston. Their music is an inspiring blend of world, singer-songwriter and devotion with unique anthemic coloring in each song. The listener is especially touched by the gifts of their voice, known to embrace the heart with soothing and celestial harmonies.
