"SKINS/UK Series"

She’s someone you should definitely check out if you’re into singers like Aimee Mann and Beth Orton.

"Creative Loafing/Charlotte"

Asheville-native Chambliss' bright, warm, girly voice recalls Julianna Hatfield working a plush, piano-rock vibe.

"MoutainXpress Asheville/Frank Rabey"

Ashley Chambliss
Oh, what a lovely voice! Chambliss' singing holds heaven and hell in equal measure: Sweet, breathy highs swoop south across a single note into broken-hearted phrasing that will eat your cynicism for breakfast. Comparisons (Sarah McLachlan-like beauty meets Rickie Lee Jones' melancholic cool?) ultimately fail; Chambliss' gift is too complex. Sadly for Asheville, she's soon to be some other city's treasure: Chambliss leaves next month for Berklee School of Music. Here's hoping that theory-fixated Boston college doesn't hamper her outrageous gifts: Chambliss' piano playing is accomplished and emotive; she composes with a sweeping, beautiful authority; she doesn't skimp on hooks; she's blessed with an intuitive understanding of harmony; and, yes, she's got that voice. Her Bele Chere show heralds the release of her sophomore effort, In This Ocean. See her play, or risk an "I told you so" once her future ignites somewhere else. - Mountain Xpress Asheville, NC

"Asheville Citizen Times/Tony Kiss"

Singer-pianist Ashley Chambliss looks to be one of the brightest new young talents, with her amazing voice, top keyboard skills and profound lyrics. - Asheville Citizen Times

"Creative Loafing/Atlanta"

even tougher competitors was Asheville native Ashley Chambliss, a keyboard wizard who makes one piano sound like two…

"MountainXpress/Ali Marshall"

Chambliss is...romantic, but there's edginess between the lines... Sade but less tortured.

"Asheville Citizen Times/Tony Kiss"

Singer-songwriter Ashley Chambliss is making a name for herself with a sweet piano sound. . .
- Asheville Citizen Times

"Mountain Xpress/Marsha Barber"

Ashley Chambliss, a new-to-the-scene pianist/singer whose shockingly distinctive voice recalls some combination of Jewel, Sarah McLachlan and Rickie Lee Jones.
