Ball has found a fan following through her band Hey Ocean! and through bronies, the adult fans of the television show My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, a show in which she voices and sings as two of the six main characters, Applejack and Rainbow Dash.[8] Ball has been to several brony conventions, including BronyCon and Bay Area Brony Spectacular as a guest of honour. Ball stated in her documentary A Brony Tale, in which she is the main subject, "It's (My Little Pony) a really important part of a lot of these people's lives. So yeah, as long as My Little Ponies exist, there will be bronies." In 2002-2003, she portrayed the voice of Noggin's former mascot, Feetface.

On May 2, 2017 she released the music video "Crazy", and on June 2 released her debut solo EP Gold in You.[9][10]
