Ava and Lily Rashed

Ava & Lily—Ava and Lily RashedAva & Lily Rashed are 14-yr-old twins from Charlottetown who are set to take up the torch in a long-time family music tradition. Their grandfather was Country Hall of Famer Charlie Chamberlain, and their father, David Rashed, is keyboardist for platinum-selling hometown legends Haywire.

The sisters are already singer-songwriters of note with their song “Worth It” having sparked the anti-cyber bullying initiative, a program of the Stop Cyber Bullying Global campaign. As multi-instrumentalists, the talented pair have it covered. Ava plays guitar and piano and Lily plays the fiddle, guitar and piano. Their first live performance was at the age of 9 at the Confederation Center for a Stop Cyber bullying youth summit. Since then they have played numerous benefits, graced the stage at many Island venues, and this year performed at the Cavendish Music Festival.

Ava & Lily’s first single, “OK With That,” was released in 2017, accompanied by a video. The release was followed by enthusiastic local media support. Just released, their debut self-titled album, Ava & Lily, features all songs written, co-produced and performed by the two sisters.

Assisting them are David Rashed (bass, electric and acoustic guitars, programming, keyboards), Sean Kilbride (drums) and Aaron Crane (fiddle). The project was recorded by David Rashed in his Charlottetown studio, Studio at The Guild. Artwork is by Kenny Vail, photography is by Louise Vessey and Social Media Assistant and Stylist is Hanna Rashed.

You can follow Ava & Lily on FB at AvaAndLilyRashed, Instagram at AvaAndLilyOfficial, and on YouTube at Ava and Lily. CDs are available in Charlottetown at Back Alley Music and Confederation Centre gift shop and online at Itunes, Spotify and at live performances.
