Erica Ashley has dedicated her life to music and at only 16 that might sound a bit unremarkable. What is remarkable is that in only a handful of years this young artist has developed a voice that people are already comparing to contemporary artists twice her age. Katie O’Halloran of EMI said, “We could have sworn that we were listening to an unreleased Katy Perry song.”
Her music and the strength of her talent have landed her a private auditions for The Voice and America’s Got Talent, performances on CBS Television, and direct support for amazing national acts including Aaron Carter, Travis Garland, X-Factor faves Kingsland Road, and Lady Gaga’s own Colby O’Donis of “Just Dance”.
Erica’s first single “Where Are We Now?” led to a swarm of press and a #1 rank on Reverb Nation’s Pop Chart. Wordkrapht Magazine said, “Comparisons to Kelly Clarkson and Katy Perry come to mind and those are powerful vocalists to keep up with. When you consider her age, it makes her that much more amazing.”
Despite comparisons to her influences, Erica Ashley is one of a kind. Her new EP Gravity displays the maturity and originality of this rising star and it shows a sonic evolution toward a more substantive, organic sound. Glitter & Stilettos Magazine remarked, “Me Against the World is a thought-provoking single that glistens with star-power and righteous musical prowess. Erica Ashley deals with deep lyrical content while executing seasoned vocals and a passionate performance.”
With new music, continued exposure, and national shows in the coming months, 2015 promises to be an explosive year for Erica Ashley.
