“Leah Ashton, an Anderson University alum, wants the public to hear her latest musical venture. On Tuesday, April 20, at 7:30 p.m. in the Reardon Auditorium lobby on the AU campus, she will play tunes from her new, six-song CD, “Things Better Left Unsaid.” The release, she said, is more bluesy and more edgy than her 2007 self-titled five-song disc. “My first CD focused on my own thoughts, self, life,” said Ashton, 23. “But my second CD focuses more on relationships, another person and my perspective.” Her first CD was released by Orangehaus records at Anderson University. Her songs have played on WQME radio frequently. Matt Rust, program director of WQME, enjoys both playing and listening to her music. “I can’t wait to hear Leah’s new album. She’s amazing! So much talent … and it’s different. She’s fresh and new, not a copy of someone else. Our listeners love her music,” said Rust…”
