We recently had the opportunity to ask Ashe a few questions about her music. You can find the brief Q&A below along with a stream of her single “Used To It.” Enjoy! Q&A Casablanca Sunset: How would you describe your sound? Ashe: Hmm… I honestly can’t say 100%. I’m just trying to make music that feels good. But if I had to put a label on it, I’d say it’s a wonky cross of alternative-pop music with acoustic psychedelic and rock influences. CS: Awesome, so how long have you been singing? A: OUT THE WOMB. CS: Who are some of your early musical influences? A: Bob Dylan, Carole King, Ella Fitzgerald, Jefferson Airplane, Stevie Nicks. CS: How did your time at Berklee College of Music help shape your sound as a singer/songwriter? A: Well, school introduced me to jazz harmony which sorta blew open my world on how I thought about chords and melodies… That really changed everything for me. CS: You’ve recently collaborated with Louis The Child, Whethan, Shaun Frank, The Chainsmokers and more. How do you like the process of collaborating with other acts? A: I love collaborating. Each time is magical in its own unique way and every artist brings something new to the table. CS: What new artist do you think will have a big 2018? A: Lewis Capaldi is going to crush it. CS: Any new music in the future that we can expect from you? A: Right now, I’m wrapping up my first ever EP and couldn’t be more excited for everyone to hear! Thanks, Ashe!
