"Carrie Ashton Showcases Great Artistry"

Carrie Ashton showcases great artistry in “Always There”, a very Top 40 type song, soaring in the Chorus, sounding like a refined Melissa Etheridge. The song seems to be born for her to sing.
RATING: **** (4 out of 5 Stars)

- International Acoustic Music Awards

"Carrie Is On Her Way"

“Upon listening to "Modern Day Gypsy", I have to say that I was quite impressed with her sound (lyrics/voice, music & melody). I honestly think that she can make it in the industry because I can see/feel her mainstream appeal”.


"The Ridgefield Playhouse Opens Their Doors For Carrie Ashton"

“I have seen waves of raw talent during my tenure as a director and Carrie is one of the best. She is not only a truly gifted singer but she has an innate ability to read the crowd and move them with her unique style and charisma.”

- Cynthia DuJack, Executive Director

"TAXI Gives Carrie Ashton's "Always There" Two Thumbs Up!"

"The story scenario in "Always There" is totally relatable and that’s always a good thing. To me your voice reminds me of a cross between Melissa Etheridge and Martina McBride. The grittiness of Melissa and the fully supported runs of Martina. However you slice it, it’s intended to be a compliment!”


"The Songwriter’s Network Applauds Carrie Ashton"

“I found Carrie’s performance to be honest, unpretentious, and filled with energy. She had accomplished what most performers wish they could do… entertain! Excellent performance! Carrie’s lyrical style is definitely first class, and her vocals are as powerful as any mainstream artist. It would appear that she is a formidable competitor in the national music arena.” - Bert Gagnon, Producer

Carrie Ashton’s passion for music has been long standing. She began performing at local and regional talent competitions at the age of thirteen and has never looked back. She has been performing professionally for over twelve years, perfecting a stage show that is unpretentious and captivating. She is currently performing in top showcase rooms in New York, Connecticut, and Massachusetts, has appeared as a featured guest on several college campuses throughout New England, and has shared the stage with Natalie Merchant, the Go-Go’s, REO Speedwagon, Antigone Rising, and Van Zant.

Carrie is well versed to perform solo with just her acoustic guitar or lead a full accompaniment of musicians. She has an innate ability to read the crowd and move them with her unique style and charisma, her energy on stage is hard to ignore.

In 2003, Carrie teamed up with Grammy winning producer/engineer Peter Moshay, and producer/engineer Matthew Russo to record “Modern Day Gypsy”. With her wide-ranging vocals and the raw emotions of her lyrics, her dedication to self-improvement was more than apparent on this CD.

In 2007, Carrie collaborated with award winning musician/producer Kevin Hupp, President of Kevco Music Group, LLC and the owner of the Groove Room Recording Studio in Brewster, NY to write and produce by far her best work to date. From the opening title track Truth Is to the soaring ballad I Wish It Would Rain, Carrie's music takes the listener on an incredible musical journey. The power rock influences in the infectious, hard rocking Can’t Stop leaves them breathless and wanting more. This record has something for everyone, proving Carrie to be a formidable competitor in the national music arena.

She sites her musical influences as Joan Jett, Suzi Quattro, and Melissa Etheridge among others. "Music for me is like breathing, and I feel that with this record I'm able to convey the emotion I feel when I sing. Working with such amazing artists has really broadened my musical horizons, and I feel like "truth is" definitely shows that."
