Biography

"In a time when soul music, real music with a pulse that makes you FEEL something is in the minority, Ashley comes along as a breath of truly fresh air."
- Monte J. Wolfe, Co-founder BraveSoul Collective

"Every great voice commands attention and makes people stop and take notice. Yet there's an additional amazing and rare quality to Ashley's voice: it finds its way to the center of your soul and warms you, illuminating you from the inside out. And her songs! Memorable and catchy without ever being formulaic, soulful and sensuous yet never saccharine. If the world doesn't embrace Ashley, then the world doesn't know a single thing about good music."
- Anam Owili-eger, Singer/Songwriter/Musician

Captivating audiences with her intimately soulful and lyrical professions of love, life, and truth, Philadelphia-born Ashley Phillips is a singer/songwriter to watch out for. Influenced heavily by jazz/funk, pop, and progressive R&B, Ashley's unique blend of acoustic R&B and soul draws comparisons to such artists as Minnie Riperton, Amel Larrieux, Adriana Evans, and Dionne Farris.
