Aspen Black’s music is art. Her unique acoustic style and tight lyrics connect with, and captivate, audiences of all ages. Aspen and her band use traditional and historic acoustic instrumentation and vocals to get a modern sound, while still keeping to the old-timey roots. She writes and arranges the presentation of every song in her live show, plays all of the instrumental back-up on her CDs (from 2009 on) including acoustic guitar, 12-string guitar, mandolin, fiddle, bass, and percussion, shoots many of her own photos, lays out the graphics, and records/mixes/ and masters in her rustically themed studio. Like painter or sculptor who lovingly creates each work from start to finish, Aspen is a true musical artisan.
She began singing when she was two, writing poetry at age six, and has been professionally performing her original songs and poems for 21 years. Everything she does is a ministry, with faith that her work will touch the hearts of those who need to receive the messages and love she conveys. Since 1993, Aspen has released two commercially charting Country albums, two Western CDs, one combination Western Music/Cowgirl Poetry CD, and a Cowgirl Poetry CD which topped out at number 2 on the Western Music charts. Her “From the Heart of A Cowgirl” finished in the top-ten albums of the year. She is also a 2012 nominee for the Academy of Western Artists Western Music Performer of the Year- Female, Western Music CD of the Year, Poet-Female, and Poetry CD of the Year.
Aspen is a champion Barrel Racer, founder and of the “Empowered Riding” method, and well-respected horse trainer and instructor in multiple disciplines. She is currently the President of the East Coast Chapter of the Western Music Association, Secretary of the Western Music Association Western Wordsmiths Chapter, and member of numerous music and horse associations. Aspen’s music, poetry, and horsemanship has been featured in a variety of newspapers (The Baltimore Sun, Franklin News-Post, Smith Mtn. Eagle, Rope Burns, etc.), magazines (The Quarter Horse Journal, America’s Horse, Western Way), television (WDBJ-7, Cable 12), and radio, (numerous stations across the USA and Canada).

Aspen's shows are always engaging and family-friendly. She varies upbeat songs with those of lyrical and emotional depth. Fans and show promoters alike have commented that Aspen's original songs stand up alongside top commercial acts like Taylor Swift and The Band Perry.

Aspen performs solo, duo, or with a small back-up band depending on the venue, compensation, location, and availability of date.
