“Erica Ashley on Times Square Billboard! Erica, 15, has already toured with Aaron Carter. She’s on a billboard! What we liked most was her cause. Erica Ashley wrote “Me Against the World” in honor of her best friend, who died of suicide. She hopes to spread the message that no one is ever alone.”
“It is hard to believe that such powerful voice can come from an artist as young as 15 years old but, songstress Erica Ashley is proving that age is just a number when it comes to belting out remarkable vocals and sensational pop sounds. Having been compared to performers such as Katy Perry, and having toured with artists such as Colby O’Donis and Aaron Carter, Erica Ashley is raising the bar with the release of her latest single “Me Against the World” from her 2014 EP ‘Gravity’.”
"Welcome to the "Supernova" that is Erica Ashley. In a short time, this teen from Richmond has exploded. We featured her debut single “Where Are We Now?” a year ago, and she hasn’t been still since. With an album release and national dates with Aaron Carter in the fall, this is only the beginning.
““FREQUENCY” breathes a dance-infused ambiance wrapped in sharp hip-hop bars, appealing righteously to the mainstream ear. Songstress Erica Ashley lends energetic dance vocals on the hook that are reminiscent of Katy Perry’s E.T. collaboration with Kanye West.”
“Last year, Erica Ashley teamed up with JOR-G, a fellow artist under development with songwriting/production team PopRiot, appearing on his track “Frequency.” Now, there’s an official music video to boot. Directed by Edgar David Nazario, the video unfolds like an au courant young adult novel, taking place in a dystopian future where rebels of a tyrannical government regime who wish to preserve their secrets must make their way to clandestine transmission outposts and upload their memories to the “Nexus” without being caught.”
“FREQUENCY features Erica Ashley and combines tight rhymes with a machine gun-style delivery, a killer beat and her stunning vocals.”
"This year, Erica Ashley started high school. She also made her television debut and opened for two of pop’s rising stars."

“Erica Ashley just completed a performance on CBS in Virginia and is releasing the official video for this track on September 6th. With the help of a very talented team of managers, she has accomplished a tremendous amount in such a short time.

“Erica Ashley is a talented young singer from Henrico County. At just 14 years old, the video for her first single, ‘Where Are We Now’ will be released Friday September 6th. Today, she performed the single, ‘Where Are We Now’ and ‘For Never and Ever’.”
“I have been blessed to be Erica’s vocal coach for several years, and I knew the first time I heard her sing that I was listening to a true talent!! It was a joy to direct her in Studio Performance Academy’s musical productions. Erica is not only a wonderful vocalist, but an incredible performer! Her future is unlimited!”
“Listening to “Where Are We Now?” will immediately bring comparisons of Kelly Clarkson, Katy Perry and even a pop-sounding Carrie Underwood. Here’s the kicker though…she’s only 14. She has decided to go after her dreams and seems to be on the way to achieving them. We’ll all be there saying I remember when she was….”
“Erica was fun to work with and an awesome musician. She tackled a wide variety of songs, and made them her own. She is a true pro at a young age!”
