Winner of several awards including "Rock Artist of the Year" in the LA Music Awards , a #1 video, a slot opening for Motley Crue & Aerosmith, their current single on the World Famous KROQ, & A Sonicbids Spotlight Artist, this female fronted hard rock band is on the verge of a breakthrough.

Biography

The LA-based hard rock band, Outlett, is officially on its way to the mainstream. Especially, with their highly anticipated and January 2010 release of their new EP “FULL CIRCLE” produced by Platinum Producer Toby Wright (Metallica, Three Doors Down, Alice In Chains). Chastity Ashley decided to be brutally honest lyrically sharing her fears, depth, vision, truth, hopes and desires which is fueled through positive aggression. Not only does she showcase a resonant vocal style that parallels Gwen Stefani in dynamics but also shows she is not just a voice but also a well skilled djembe player. The band has taken it to a whole new level showing that without a doubt they are a force to be reckoned with and are here to stay.
For the past three years, Outlett has been steadily building its buzz internationally developing its style and incendiary live performance before an ever-growing fan base. Blending tribal drumbeats courtesy of front woman Chastity Ashley, this committed quintet has created a sound that is consistently commercial yet distinctly diverse.
Outlett’s unique style is a direct result of the eclectic batch of inspiration that each musician brings to the songwriting table. Each member attended Musician’s Institute where the band all met. This allowed the craftsmanship, diversity and level of musicianship that they otherwise wouldn’t have been exposed to. With influences that range from Alice in Chains to My Chemical Romance, and from Incubus to Pantera, this band has assembled a musical mosaic of quality musicianship with pure passion. By channeling this raw emotion into explosive numbers like “Say Goodbye” and “Power of Truth” it creates a driving force of fury that hits its audience like a musical juggernaut.
In addition to landing a slot opening on the Motley Crue & Aerosmith Tour, a slot on the Vans Warped Tour, the band’s songs have been spun in multiple forms of media. The band has reached over 900,000 plays in a matter of a year and has a built solid army of over 60,000 friends on Myspace. The last EP continues to receive rave reviews from a cast of critics across the country and beyond and they’ve reached over 10,000 units sold without major distribution and promotion. Last year their single gained the recognition of The World Famous KROQ in Los Angeles landing their single "Say Goodbye" on the air as well as the headlining slot on the famous KROQ Micro Brew Festival in Los Angeles. At Tom Morello's (Rage Against The Machine) invitation, Chastity played her djembe with Alice In Chains, Ben Harper, Filter and Cypress Hill at the CD release party for Morello's "The Nightwatchman." The band landed a Mobile Licensing deal with Ultrashort Media airing their video for “Walk Away” on Sprint & O2 (United Kingdom) networks and were the featured artist on Adrenaline Nation TV where their single "Walk Away" hit #1 which is being aired to over 100 million subscribers worldwide. The band also placed in the TOP 5 as one of the Best Bands in the Country out of thousands of submissions for the GETMELOADED on FUSE TV Contest sponsored by D’Addario, FUSE TV, Purevolume & TAMA where the band landed an endorsement deal. If that wasn’t enough, Outlett, was crowned “Rock Artist of the Year” & “Performing Artist of the Year” in the Los Angeles Music Awards, landed in the “Hot 100 Best Unsigned Bands” in Music Connection Magazine two years in a row and were selected from thousands of artists worldwide as one of the Top Unsigned Artists in the country in The Independent Artist Registry’s “Music Phone Book”, the Nation’s Top Music Industry Magazine.

Lyrics

Walk Away

Written By: Chastity Ashley of OUTLETT

Once again I lost myself
And all this time I knew it felt like hell.

Need to learn to walk away
And turn around and face the day
I need to walk away

Life isn't fair, just walk away, walk away.

Life isn't fair, just walk away, walk away.

Looking forward not looking back.
You can't disguise the truth when it's been said.

Need to learn to walk away
And turn around and face the day
I need to walk away

Life isn't fair, just walk away, walk away.

Life isn't fair, just walk away, walk away.

Are we lost, are we caught up in ourselves, with no place to run.

I feel that through these circumstances we can find truth
And not have to RUN.

Life isn't fair, just walk away, walk away.

Life isn't fair, just walk away, walk away.

Walk Away, Walk Away
Walk Away

Say Goodbye

Written By: Chastity Completo

Verse:
The Moment that I wake, I'm still lost in dreams, your face still remains.

Do I say goodbye, to my alibi, the tattered soul I hide, I can't stay home and cry. Do I see quite clear, in mind full of waste.

I try to understand and fathom why
Can't see beyond what lies

And it's all I can do

Chorus:
The only time that I say goodbye is
When you turn your back
Would I be inclined to say goodbye
If you, wouldn't keep holding back

Do I say goodbye, this tattered soul, and let heartache take control
Do I say goodbye, to my alibi, the tattered soul I hide, I can't stay home and cry. Do I see quite clear, in mind full of waste.

Chorus:
The only time that I say goodbye is
When you turn your back
Would I be inclined to say goodbye
If you, wouldn't keep holding back

The only time that I say goodbye is
When you turn your back
Would I be inclined to say goodbye
If you, wouldn't keep holding back

Bridge:
Are you troubled, I feel troubled, Are you lost?
Are you lost?
I feel troubled, are you troubled?
I'm alive!

Chorus:
The only time that I say goodbye is
When you turn your back
Would I be inclined to say goodbye
If you, wouldn't keep holding back

The only time that I say goodbye is
When you turn your back
Would I be inclined to say goodbye
If you, wouldn't keep holding back

Looking Foward

Written By: Chastity Ashley

I thought that I had everything
Could it be, I just wasn't one
I think you could have anything
Where did I go wrong

I thought that I was honest
Of all that I've become and what I should be
I had kept a promise, I knew I wanted more, I need to see
I knew right then and felt right then that I couldn't deny

Looking Forward and never looking back
There are only some things that we can pretend
Because it only feels so good, when we say
We're in Love

I knew what I had wanted
Can this be ignored, what I should be
I just kept on falling
Time for me to soar I want to be free

I knew right then and felt right then that I wouldn't be blind
I felt right then, I knew right then, that I couldn't deny

Looking Forward and never looking back
There are only some things that we can pretend
Because it only feels so good, when we say
We're in Love

I found the truth and the answer
Felt just, where I need to be
Never thought, that this could ever happen
I can't believe, this happened to me

Looking Forward and never looking back
There are only some things that we can pretend
Because it only feels so good, when we say
We're in Love
