Ashley was nominated for two music awards in the year 2020 with the largest independent music award show, The Josie Music Awards. These awards include, Best Song of the Year and Best Music Video of the Year.
The following year 2021, Ashley was nominated for and won Rock Vocalist of the Year at The Josie Music Awards.
In the year 2020, Ashley signed a major distribution deal with Rock Avenue Records USA. Ashley received a great opportunity to fly to Los Angeles California this year to shoot a music video for her new single with director Arron Kinser from Buffalo 8. The Band’s 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 who don’t follow trends, but rather create them.
The Band would say it is Classical meets Rock with a heartfelt and unique style. All of the lyrics and music are Ashley’s original creations. Her voice style and genre is distinct, raw and gives her music an incredible commercial, but almost underground sound at the same timeless, not pretty and pink, but black on black.
