ABOUT

Hey! My name is Ashley. I am looking to form a band/group. I have only ever done solo stuff so I have no experience collaborating with other musicians. I'm hoping to find some artists who love music, who I click with and feel completely comfortable around, and who want to make music as a group for the love of music (but would be willing to stick with it if things pick up eventually). The goal is to meet some talented people who I love being around and have fun with to the point we forget we're on a stage. I'm a picky person though so I understand it might take some time to find the right people.

A little about me: I decided to follow my passion of pursuing a career in music my senior year of high school. I proceeded to take a few music classes in community colleges over the next couple years, so I have a little bit of knowledge under my belt, but it's limited. I have taken voice lessons and plan to take more soon. I'm 23 now and have a general associate's. I have taught myself how to make electronic music over the past few years and I'm still learning as I go. I can usually listen to something and then recreate parts of it, but I can't read sheet music. I play piano mostly by ear. And my piano skills are very limited.. I know the chords and keys but I can't do anything crazy (I usually stick to chord progressions). It's enough to accompany my singing and that's all I've really cared about. My guitar playing is barely worth mentioning since I suck at it, but I have played acoustic guitar for probably 10 years. I only know a handful of chords, nothing crazy. I usually stick to piano, and I prefer it anyways. But singing is my main draw.

I'm extremely passionate about music. I live for live music and I enjoy going to concerts regularly. There's no other experience like hearing the artists you listen to and look up to perform before your eyes. I am in love with the way music brings people together and can stop everything in it's tracks. It's a magical thing. And I want to share my passion with the world. I want to spread love, happiness, and hope for people going through tough times. Music has gotten me through some tough times and I want to help people through theirs. My ultimate dream is to create a fanbase (big or small), and go on a tour around the US as an opening act or main act. Either way I'm happy. (Small venues preferred since they're more intimate. But big venues are badass too).
