Biography

In 2013, sultry vocalist and songwriter Ashley Xtina began performing her original songs in a rock/blues duo called Pretty in Blue at local bars in New York City. Though the project lasted only a few months, it gave her the courage to start working on her solo EP, “Stability” with the help of long-time friend, producer Kevin Frias. Since her solo debut in January 2014, her song “Dream” has won “Honorable Mention” in the American Songwriter Magazine Lyric Contest and she has been featured at well-known NYC venues such as Rockwood Music Hall and Pianos.  “Stability”, released in July of 2014,  is a 4-song introduction to the life and mind of Ashley Xtina.

Heavily inspired by Emeli Sande’s “Our Version of Events” and Adele’s “19”,  “Stability” is a mixture of both pop and soul genres with daring melodies and intimate lyrics. Each of the four songs on the EP represent a different change in Ashley’s life, and through these experiences she feels that she has finally reached a secure sense of herself  which is why the EP is titled “Stability”.

Currently developing an all-girl rock band , Queen of Wands, where Ashley will be the lead singer and bassist, she will stop at nothing to make her voice heard. Ashley Xtina is determined to rule crowds with her words and melodies no matter how big or small they may be.
