Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


Timeless records that give you goose bumps, every time you listen to it....soulful voices that hit that nerve in your body that make you feel like you are right there within the song….rhythm, blues, soul, all components to music that has lasted through generations. In a time that hip hop is the voice of the generation there is a void; the sultry sector of R&B/Soul.
Born in Indianapolis, Indiana; raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Ashaya is a fan of the old school R&B greats such as, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Chaka Khan, and Gladys Knight. Ashaya wants to take her love for R&B and restore that same timeless feeling into today’s hip hop generation.
At the tender age of 3, you could find the young Ashaya participating in dance classes. She loved to get on the stage and do the ballet and tap dances she spent so much time rehearsing. As she got older her love for being on the stage only magnified. She expanded her interest in performing past just dance. Ashaya enjoyed writing and directing her brothers and cousins in her very own plays. Ashaya’s mother noticed that the 6 year old playwright really had a keen interest in the arts, so she enrolled Ashaya in a drama school, where Ashaya attended after school. Here Ashaya got the chance to put her love for singing along with acting and dancing to use.
As Ashaya got older, she continued to study her interests of singing, dance, and drama. Ashaya participated in her elementary and middle school choirs. When it was time for Ashaya to make the big transition to high school, she was realizing that the bliss of grade school was slowly reaching its end, and now it was time to really think about career choices. Since she was 3 years old she has been performing, and to continue what she loves to do seemed like the most natural choice to make. In the 9th grade Ashaya got the part of Aretha Franklin, singing Chain of Fools in the high school musical. All along Ashaya knew that this is what she wanted to do, but after this performance she caught the attention of other people, and now had believers that she was really going some where with her god given talent.
After her freshmen year in high school Ashaya made a big choice to leave all the people she knew and had gone to school with since elementary, to continue her education more specifically for the arts, at North Atlanta High School Centre for the Arts. Ashaya was accepted to the school, and started her sophomore year in high school at a brand new school; here she planned to tighten her talents into skills. After studying so many sections of the arts for so long Ashaya has really gained an overall respect for the arts.
Now 17, and a junior in high school, Ashaya is ready to start her career as a recording artist. She loves old school R&B, and of course growing up in a day and age where hip hop is the voice of the people, she loves hip hop. She hopes that her music can be a fresh sound infusing her love for R&B/Soul with the emphatic hip hop. When asked what she wants people to really hear when they listen to her music she replies, “I want the people like myself, who love to listen to the oldie R&B songs to hear that influence in my music, and at the same time I want this hip hop generation now to hear my music and relate to it. I want everyone to really feel it! R&B/Soul to me…is music that you can really feel.”
