Performing as an opener for Willie Nelson, Luke Bryan, and Chuck Wicks shortly after the release of her debut album Heaven On Earth, Ashley Alexander proved she could certainly hold her own on the big stage. Opening spots were followed by numerous appearances at sporting events and media outlets, that eventually lead to an opportunity to perform the National Anthem at a NASCAR Nationwide Series Race. But whether playing in a coffeehouse or singing in a arena, Ashley makes each show a personal and entertaining experience for every audience. Since the release of Heaven On Earth (a collection of Country-Pop songs recorded in Nashville, TN) Ashley’s music and live performances have taken on a new life. Her mix of the spirit of country and the longing of blues translate to audiences yearning for a fresh approach from a relevant entertainer. Just at the beginning of her career, Ashley's seasoned talent makes for strong artist who connects to people through music.
Her debut album release Heaven On Earth is a mix of sweet melodies, catchy lyrics and great harmonies. Co-writing and performing on Heaven On Earth allowed Ashley to collaborate with an accomplished team of music industry professionals. Producer, Jerry Marcellino, (Michael Jackson and The Jackson 5, Diana Ross, Smokey Robinson) was the producer and co-writer for Ashley and Fantasy’s first CD. During her last year of college he encouraged her to pursue her to record again. “We began working on just a 2 song demo and were so excited about what we had that we decided to do a full length album”, says Ashley. Co-Producer, engineer, and writer on the album, Bill Cuomo (Don Henley, Olivia Newton John, Barbra Streisand, Kim Carnes) helped to make the vision for the record come to life and was recorded at his studio. Finally, Ashley was honored to co-write with Bill and music legend Beeb Birtles, a co-founder and member of the Multi-Platinum Group ‘The Little River Band’. Mr. Birtles even sang on the song they penned together “Your Kiss”, lending vocal harmonies to this album.
After the album's release Ashley began performing in promotion of the CD and soon after relocated to Los Angeles, CA. She met her guitarist, fellow Berklee College of Music graduate Miles Bergsma and formed a band with mutual friends and former bandmates from Boston. They began playing around town and soon gained a new audience on the West Coast. In an effort to bring other new artists together and provide another venue for them to perform Ashley began hosting her own songwriter's showcase round called the "Hello LA Shindy" at a restaurant on the Sunset Strip. Described as a "musical shin-dig", the nights soon became a fan and musician favorite that she continues to host twice a month.
Currently, Ashley is working on new music for release in 2013 which will feature her latest songs "Nothing Like You" and "Let Down"
