Lunch & Listen is a casual lunchtime networking event and listening session that will provide members of the music community with an opportunity to showcase their work, discover local talent, and broaden their network with the intent to inspire collaboration and musical growth.

This month's Lunch & Listen will feature guest songwriter and recording artist, Ashley Avenue.

Ashley Ave Foster, is a singer/songwriter from Memphis Tennessee. Starting out on the live music scene, Ave made her debut in popular Memphis hotspots such as The Ice Bar and Prohibition. In 2016, she caught the attention of Stax Records legend David Porter and became a member of his Memphis Music Town Consortium cohort (MMT), which gave her the opportunity to showcase her talents in front of recording giants such as Universal and Epic Records.

Ashley released her debut single Red Wine produced by Jarvin "Memphis TrackBoy" Harris in March 2017. This smooth, soulful record, garnered rave reviews and features in well read blogs The Daily Chiefer’s, HipHop Relevant, and The Dope Show. With forthcoming hit singles such as No Good and a yet to be titled EP dropping this summer (2017), Ashley Ave is poised to take the music industry by storm as only a native Memphian can; grit and GRIND!
