Biography

Music and performing arts have been a huge part of my life since I was very young. I've been involved with musical theater since the age of five and was a member of two performing arts groups, one in Washington, and one later in Montana when I moved there at the age of nine. When I was fourteen I began writing songs, performing solo acts at local festivals and county fairs. Often my style is compared to Ingrid Michealson's, although my performances bring Sara Bareilles to mind. I graduated from high school at fifteen and during my first semester at the University of Montana I started a student organization, called the Jamming Club, that served to network student musicians who wanted to play and perform in a band. After completing two years of college, I'm now in Los Angeles where I just finished recording an EP and am pursuing my musical career. In my free time I like to bake pies, write, travel, and read all kinds of books.

Lyrics

Setting You Free

Written By: Ashley Rezvani

We had a couple months,
We had a couple months,
I won't forget 'em
They were fun, lots of fun

We had a couple fights,
We had a couple fights,
They weren't the problem
Cause there was so much more

There were so many days
There were so many days
I felt like we were just
Dragging on and on

There were so many times
There were so many times
We were together
But together was lonely
There was so much more that was wrong

Chorus: So pick yourself up
And over me
Cause here I am
Setting you free
We took our shot,
We laughed a lot,
But it's not meant to be

We had a couple months,
We had a couple months,
I won't forget 'em
They were fun, lots of fun

We had a couple fights,
We had a couple fights,
They weren't the problem
Cause there was so much more

Chorus:

Bridge: Don't you go chasing dead ends
Don't you go picking at loose ends

Chorus 2x

Trust me, it's better this way
You'll find someone better someday

Autumn Whiskers & Magic Tricks

Written By: Ashley Rezvani

Autumn whiskers
In my peripheral vision
This don't bode so well for me

You're sipping whiskey
Trying to force some kind
Of division in your mind
Between smoke and the sky

Writing stories with your thumbs
Saying you're sure she's the one
But you're looking kinda glum to me

Flight or fight reactions
Become afterthoughts
Cause when you know you get caught
Love is just a diffraction, yeah

Chorus: Don't look at her eyes
Look in mine
Cause she's a sorta messed-up
Worn-out wise
Don't look at her eyes
Look in mine
Cause you would recognize it
You will realize it

Whistling in the dark of night
At the hounds you'll never find
Oh they drove you
Into the ground

You solicit them
With that sweet moon language
Which on Monday pushed us all
Off the edge

Chorus

Bridge: Cause I don't want another magic trick
Don't saw me in half
To make yourself laugh
Cause she don't want another magic trick
Don't saw her in half
To make me laugh

And with a flourish of your cape
And a poof of smoke
With a tip of your hat
And a twirl of your mustachios
You vanish into the sky

Bye, bye, bye

Chorus 2x

Autumn whiskers on your chin
And a stupid boyish grin
Constantly risking absurdity
And all of your so-called illusions
Well they're just delusions
We're victims of confusion

Speak

Written By: Ashley Rezvani

Speak those three words
Say them out loud
So I know they're true

Speak of all that's unheard
And all we already knew
Say you love me too
Say you love me too

Let all your letters
Cascade off your skin
Your whispers will pool
On the floorboards
My love, this is the second day
We are born

Chorus: What are you
Afraid of?
It's just a simple
Sound
There's nothing to be
Afraid of
If you say you love me too
If you say you love me too

And it's all that you are
All that you ever were
You're what makes me sure
That we can write on our bones

But our names won't be
Carved into stone

Let all your letters
Cascade off your skin
Your whispers will pool
On the floorboards
My love, this is the second day
We are born

Chorus

We All Fall

Written By: Ashley Rezvani

I woke up today
Cause I'd fallen right out of my bed
And I can't say
My day got much better from there

Oh I had tripped
Right over my own two feet
And I had slipped from grace
And down the rabbit hole

Pre-Chorus: You looked me over once
And you said
Falling's not so bad
We fall in love, we fall asleep
Things fall apart
To fall in place

Chorus: We all fall, we all fall,
We all fall down some days
So baby don't worry
We all fall, we all fall,
We all fall down some days
So baby don't worry
We all fall

Oh there are some days
I don't feel like getting out of bed
Cause life has a way
Of knocking me down all at once

And all my tears fall
Little pieces into my lap
And then it all hits me,
Everything that I've lost

Pre-Chorus: You held me in your arms
And you said
Falling's not so bad
We fall in love, we fall asleep
Things fall apart
To fall in place

Chorus

Summer Dreams

Written By: Ashley Rezvani

Honey sun rays
Drip down
Finally nice weather's around

Little girls jumprope
In the street
Boys run round
With mud on their feet

Chorus: Cause baby you ah-ah-ah
My summer dream, mmm
You ah-ah-ah the gold sun to me
Sweetheart you're my-my-my
Ice cream, my rollar blades
And my shade

Hold my hand
Let's walk down
To the beach
And all around

Let's lay down
Side by side
Getting up
Before the tide

Chorus:

Instrumental

Chorus 2x
