Ayla Brown

Bio

Ayla Brown at a glance may seem to be an average young adult. Hold that glance for more than a moment, and meet a young, diligent, and aspiring woman. Driven by her own determination and core values instilled upon her by loving parents, United States Senator Scott Brown and television reporter Gail Huff, she has pursued a diverse range of endeavors.

With additional support from her sister Arianna, her achievements in the short span of the last eight years include; being an American Idol Semifinalist, recording artist of multiple albums, a touring artist of national and local performances, a great involvement in numerous charitable causes, a National Anthem singer for the Philadelphia 76ers, a Division 1 basketball player, and national news correspondent for The Early Show on CBS.

From a young age, Ayla wanted to be in the spotlight, but she understood it was important to receive a college education. “When I was on Idol, there were many kids my age who decided that school wasn’t the right fit for them,” says Ayla. “I think that an education is one of the most important gifts anyone can receive in their lifetime.”

After her departure from American Idol, Ayla laced up her sneakers for a career on the basketball court, and for four years she served as a starter on the Boston College Women’s Basketball team, earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications.

“As much as I wanted to be on a stage, receiving a basketball scholarship helped my parents tremendously with my tuition. I think they were just as excited I was to learn that I would be receiving a free education and playing for one of the best conferences in the country!” says Ayla.

Upon graduation from Boston College in 2010, Ayla packed up her car and moved to Nashville in February of 2011. In January of 2012, Ayla released a self-titled country music album from her newly started record company, Ambient Entertainment. Her first single release, “Goodbye for Good,” stayed strong at #1 on CDBaby.com’s Country Rock, Country Pop, and Overall Country charts, beating out artists such as Willie Nelson. All of the tracks were recorded at Ronnie’s Place in Nashville, TN, studio of legendary country star, Ronnie Milsap. Ayla produced the album, and she also co-wrote seven out of the nine tracks on the CD. During the summer of 2012, Ayla’s self-titled CD charted on Billboard in the Northeast of the United States.

In November of 2012, Ayla released her sophomore country patriotic-inspired album titled, Heroes and Hometowns. All songs were recorded at CURB Studios in Nashville, TN, and a portion of every CD sale benefits a military non-profit based out of Massachusetts called Hugs for Heroes, Inc. Ayla co-wrote or wrote five out of the seven songs on the album. New Balance Shoes sponsored the project, and the physical CD is available on Ayla’s website, www.aylabrown.com. “Pride of America” is the first single off the album and is available on all digital retailers, including iTunes.

As a little girl, Ayla was never one to keep a diary of thoughts or songs, but that didn’t prohibit her song-writing skills later on in life. “I feel as though I am one of those people who discovered writing songs much later in life than anticipated. Being so hard-nosed with sports I thought it was ‘weak’ to share your emotions,” she says. “But when I moved down to Nashville I realized that it was actually okay to share your feelings (sometimes with complete strangers) for the benefit of pulling out the best songs from your soul. I am so lucky in that sense to call Nashville my home.”

Between Ayla’s multiple albums, she has either co-written or written the majority of the songs featured on the CDs. “I am so blessed to write with some of the most creative people on the planet,” she says.

Ayla is a fearless songwriter, and over the years she has written with a variety of fantastic songwriters. Some of those writers include: Phil Barton (“Woman Like You,” “She Rides Away,”), Emily Shackelton (“Love Like Mine,” “Dream Big”), Billy Montana (“Bring on the Rain”, “Hard to Love,”), Kelly Archer (“15 Minutes of Shame,” “Love Like Mine,” “Got my Country On,”), Bruce Wallace (“Don’t” “Watching Airplanes,” “Red Light”), Jan Buckingham (“Blue Rose,” “I Don’t Mind the Thorns”), and more.

Currently, Ayla has four songs cut on Irish country music singer, Pete Kennedy, including a duet called, “Do What’s Right,” which is featured on Pete’s project, Nashville Sessions Vol. 2. Pete Kennedy was nominated for BCM Album and Song of the Year and BCM Male Vocalist of the Year.

Whether it is singing on a stage, writing in town, or participating in a charity event, Ayla Brown is a forced to be reckoned with. At 6 feet tall, her presence takes over a room. Just ask anyone who has worked with Ayla and they will tell you she is the hardest working person they know.
