The Ashley Bean Band is a rock band hailing from Peoria Illinois.
Over the years, The Ashley Bean Band has had influences that have molded their career into what it is today. Cathy Reynolds, four time CIA Gospel Artist of the Year, Mike Isenberg of the International acclaimed family band, The Jets, back-up musician, Rusty Hall, and John Coulter, Marshall Tucker’s sound engineer, Journey, and Diana Meltzer founder of Seether, Evanescence, and Creed, have help direct this young energized rock band.
The Band has also been featured in several magazines, one of those Stencil Magazine featured with Buckcherry and Shinedown. The Bands music has been compared to Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, as well as Alice In Chains and Nirvana, what a combo of musical innovators without compromise to follow trends but rather create them. The Band would say it is Classical meets Rock. All of the lyrics and music are Ashley's original creativity a style of her own. All of the music is heartfelt and unique. But I would say, her voice style and genre is distinct, raw and gives her music and incredible commercial but almost underground sound at the same timeless, not pretty and pink, but black on black.
