Biography

POINT (as a noun) is any definite position; (as a verb) is to direct attention to or indicate the presence or position of something. ASH is a derivative of the word Asher, which is the name of one of the 12 tribes of Israel meaning “Happy”. If you combine the two words together you get someone who is excited about directing anyone to the true King and Master of The Universe, Jesus Christ.

The best way to describe the MCee phenomenon known as Point Ash is “Ambitiously unique with a sweet tooth for hot beats”. At the same time, Asher Harris Jr., is simply a loving husband, big poppa to a few gifts from God, and a dude being rehabbed for a righteous life. His musical case file is similar, yet in contrast to your average Christian rap-head; mainly because Ash was literally “born” into a religious way of life. He grew up with a Pastor Pops and Ministry Heavy Moms. However, the one thing that always competed with his affections for Jesus Christ was an influential and at times wayward girl by the name of HipHop. Unlike most kids in the Steel City of Gary IN, his musical influences were an abstract blend of sonic gumbo. This early fusion of Gospel, Soul and HipHop, ranged from artists like Run-D.M.C, NWA, Public Enemy and later Outkast to the other end of the spectrum with Stevie Wonder, Parliament, Walter Hawkins and Kirk Franklin. Ash constantly encountered the message of Christ from his parents and even accepted Jesus at age 5! Unfortunately, after a brief period of enjoying salvation, like Notorious B.I.G. used to say, “Things Done Changed”. Point Ash struggled to learn the importance of a Godly Life. Regardless of how much mess he got in, two things were pretty clear: 1) The Lord was always with him & 2) The kid had a gift on the MIC.

Fortunately, the story does pick way up because of God’s tremendous grace. Ash married an amazing woman, that helped him get spiritually grounded and encouraged him to use his gifts for the Lord. Point Ash has really just begun exposing his music-ministry to the world. He has had the awesome opportunity to rock at numerous venues, with the hope that God got the Glory and the people felt his story! As an artist Point Ash is quick to admit “I am not an MCee they are legendary, but I’m not a Rapper either, cause they can be temporary, what I am is a Lyricist and we are sedentary”. Point Ash presents the gospel in a soulfully blunt way through his animated, over the top style of flow. All of this coupled with music from his futuristic production dream machine known as FAITHGrind, create a sound folks are hungry for today. Point Ash loves God and lives to bring 100 Proof Hip Hop Served with A Christ Twist to the masses.
