Pre-Order My New Single
Wednesday, 06 May 2015 18:10

My brand new single "Falling" is out for Pre Order right now on itunes and this time I am determined to make the itunes chart.

Please fans make sure that you head over to itunes right now and order it half price for only 59p!

The song is a heartfelt ballad that I wrote back in 2012 when I went through a really destructive and abusive relationship and I really hope other people can relate to the song as at that point of my life I felt so low that at times I didn't want to be here anymore.

I know there are thousands of women in the UK going through the same thing right now and hopefully my song will make those women feel that they are not alone and that there is nothing wrong with expressing how you feel. I am glad to say that I am slowly building my life back up however my past still haunts me today..however in time I know that I will be able to mend myself and get back to being the person that I was before this happened in my life.

I can only encourage other women going through domestic abuse to get help as quickly as possible and leave the relationship.

Speak Out and Stand Up for Yourself.

2015
Thursday, 22 January 2015 22:01

Hey everyone,

I hope you had a great Christmas and New Year!! I can't believe it's 2015 already. Where does the time go?

2014 was a great year for me professionaly with 2 headline shows at Glasgow's O2 ABC, a nomination for singer/songwriter of the year by Jim Gellatly at Amazing radio and a 23 date Glasgow school tour to promote my single "You're The One" which was featured on Channel 5's "Baby Faced Brides".

I can only hope that 2015 will bring me the same success and hopefully I can push myself to work a lot harder and smarter when it comes to building up my fanbase and promoting my new music.

So I managed to get a visit into the recording studio before Christmas and recorded a song that I wrote back in 2012 called "Falling". It will be my next single and it was written from a really low point in my life but hopefully something positive has came from a negative.

Anyway thank you again to all of my fans out there and I hope you enjoy my new music. I really have grown and matured as a person in the last couple of years.

Get yourself to you tube and check out the lyric video for "Falling"!!!

 

Lots of Love

I Love Gay Pride!!!!
Tuesday, 30 September 2014 14:29

Hey Fans,

So this weekend has been so special as I was asked to perform at both Preston and Lincoln Pride 2014. Such a fun way to spend my September weekend.

I really enjoyed both events!! Gay Pride is such a fantastic charity!! The majority of my fans are Gay so I love when I get to perform at Pride events as the crowd really get my music and image and what I am all about as an artist.

I travelled down to Preston on the Saturday and then Lincoln on the Sunday. I drove over 1'000 miles over the weekend which was crazy as I had to make a pit stop back to Glasgow on Saturday night...no rest for the wicked!!

The crowd though at Lincoln Pride on the Sunday was however the best by far they were such an amazing audience and I got the best cheer that I have had at a gig in ages!! I met Kitty Brucknell from X Factor and rap band "Big Brovaz" as they were also performing at the event!! 

I then headed to the official afterparty at "The Scene Nightclub" late at night to take to the stage once more and entertain the crowd!!! Honestly it was the best and most enjoyable performance I have did in ages!! It totally renewed my passion and spark for being a music artist!!!

Hopefully see you all again at both Prides next year!!

Love

O2 ABC Sucess
Wednesday, 27 August 2014 14:43

Hey guys,

So for the past few weeks I have been working hard promoting my show at The O2 ABC in Glasgow and I am pleased to tell all of my fans that the show went fantastic. I honestly couldnt believe how busy it was and it was amazing to see some of my fans that I met on my recent Glasgow high school tour.

My support acts were Lucy Brown and Angel Gold and both of them were really good warm up acts and the crowd really enjoyed their performance.

I sang my favourite songs from my album "Adulation"....SuperDiva, You're The One and First Love and performed covers of Beyonce's "XO" and a great big world's "Say Something".

The reaction from the audience made me really happy and I couldn't believe that some of my fans had made me banners!! I am such a lucky girl.

Myself and my friends then headed off to the afterparty at Boutique Lounge in Glasgow who kindly gave us some Champagne and lots of shots. It was a good night!!

I am now looking forward to heading off on tour again touring high schools in Edinburgh and finally heading back into the recording studio to record all of the new music that I have written.

Can't wait to see you all again at my next show at The O2 in February.

Lots of Love

Glasgow School Tour
Tuesday, 20 May 2014 20:30

Okay guys I have just completed my Glasgow school tour and it has probably been the best experience of my life.

I can honestly say that I have never been happier as an artist. I enjoyed every process of the tour... organising the event, picking the costumes with my fab clothing sponsor Sweet Boutique, designing posters, rehearsals and of course the best bit was going on the road with my amazing friend and tour manager Celine and meeting my new fans!!!!

I never imagined that the tour would be such a success and it really has helped me reach a wider audience in the west of Scotland.

I have had loads of kids downloading my current single "You're The One" and they all love the dance remix of the song.

My favourite show of the whole tour was the last show at "Abercorn Secondary" the kids were screaming and dancing it was honestly the best buzz I have ever had as a performer. The kids even made flags out of my posters and got up dancing it was so amazing to see people enjoying my music soo much!!!

Other shows that stood out as extra special were Hyndland Secondary, Sanderson High, Parkhill, Linburn and Cardinal Winning. However every school was amazing and there was not one show that did not enjoy my performance...I am really a lucky girl to have the guts and ambition to persue my dream and also to meet such fab and amazing people every day on my journey. Life is really good at the moment!!! :) :) :).

Anyway I want to thank all the kids for following me on twitter, instagram, facebook and for all of the kind drawings, banners, pictures and presents that I was given on my tour....so happy I could burst with love for these kids..honestly love my new fans sooo much!!!!

I am now going to organise everything all over again to go out on the road in August again for my upcoming Edinburgh schools tour and I will be hopefully be playing Glasgow's O2 ABC again in the next couple of months.....Super Excited!!!!!!

Lots of Love

My O2 headline show!!!
Monday, 03 March 2014 21:14

O2 ABC Glasgow,

What a crazy couple of weeks I have had guys honestly its been mental. On the 28th of February I headlined my first show at The O2 ABC in Glasgow and the night was awesome. I had support from Glasgow girl group "Echo" and young Scottish Pop singer "CortneyG".

My performance went down really well and I was really happy with the ticket sales. Honestly my fans are so loyal and I want to thank everyone who turned up.

A Glasgow shop "Nic's NYC Deli" also loved my music so much that they made me my very own "SuperDiva" doughnut and gave away 250 of them away at my O2 gig. They were lovely, Pink marshmallow with glittery icing and a huge piece of hubba bubba gum in the middle..........God its actually bonkers that I have a doughnut named after one of my songs and to think people can go into the shop in Glasgow's St Enochs square and ask for one of them is even more crazy.

I then headed to SugarCube in Glasgow's Queen Street for my aftershow party. It was amazing it was fab to let my hair down after working sooo hard on promoting the show for the past few months. I actually enjoyed the party more lol it was a mad one!!!

I have also had a lovely article wrote about me on The STV Player app and a fab interview and music review by new Glasgow online newspaper "Dafty News" who love my music which you can read here......,.....http://www.daftynews.com/scots-pop-sensation-reaching-stars/

I also had time to stop in to local radio stations Sugar Radio, Black Diamond and Pulse FM to promote my new single "You're The One".

2014 has started great for me professionally. Long May it continue... :)

Lots of Love

Channel 5!!!
Monday, 20 January 2014 20:42

Hey Everyone,

Everything is going really well with my music and I am feeling so happy at the moment in every area of my life!!! It feels great to have my spark back!!!

So here is what has been happening in my life lately ;)

On the 13th of January my current single "You're The One" got it's first ever TV airplay on Channel 5 documentry "Baby Faced Brides" and it was sooo exciting. The show is all about 3 young girls under the age of 18 who are getting married. It was a controversial show and I was asked to sing at one of the couple's wedding. After I sang the production company told me my song was very beautiful and that they would like to use it in the show.

I knew that the song was going to get used on the show since summer last year however it was still such an exciting moment to hear my favourite song that I wrote from my debut album "Adulation" playing on the TV for the first time...It was so exciting. I went to my best friends house to watch "Baby Faced Brides" and the two of us were literally screaming when we heard the intro to my song. Channel 5 used "You're The One" over all of the 3 brides first dance scenes and then carried on playing the song through the show's end credits. I was so proud.  My facebook page and mobile phone were going crazy for a few days after with everyone congratulating me. It was a very special moment and I hope there will be plenty more TV appearances for my music in the future.

I also managed to squeeze a visit into my old radio station Pulse 98.4FM where I used to present my own show a few years ago. I was asked by presenter DJ Martin Gold to come on to his show and promote my new single "You're The One". It was a fantastic morning and I also gave away two free tickets to my headline show at The O2 ABC in Glasgow which is coming up soon on the 28th of February...honestly I am so excited. I can't wait to see my name up on that venue.

Thank you to everyone so far who have bought tickets for my O2 ABC show. For fans who have still to get their tickets just go to the events section of this site and click the BUY NOW button.  Every ticket is posted out with a lovely FREE signed glossy picture.

Anyway got to shoot as I am rushed off my feet as usual.

Love

Launch Party and my next gig!!
Monday, 30 December 2013 19:44

So on the 15th of December I had my official single launch party for my new song "You're The One" at "Saint Judes" nightclub in Glasgow.  I organised the event all on my own and provided free drinks and goody bags for my guests. The cocktail was made up specially for the event. I called it "The One" and it was a mix of vodka, kiwi, lemon and lime and grenadine. It tasted sooo good. I also performed 3 versions of my new single "You're The One"...the radio edit, the dance version and my favourite a classical version which was arranged by pianist "Alison Maguire" who also played live on the night. It was very special. Alison is a very beautiful and kind lady and she was my singing teacher at Drama College so it was a moment that I will remember in years to come.

So now that I have had a wee party I am now ready to promote the song like crazy for the next six months. "You're The One is the last song to be released from my debut album "Adulation" and it is the best song I have ever written so it deserves my full time and effort. It is exhausting promoting a record as an independent artist as you don't have the luxury of having a huge record company with loads of cash to throw at advertising. However I work my little butt off and slowly but surely I am reaching out to more fans that support me through thick and thin!...Honestly you mean so much to me!!!

So my next gig is at The O2 ABC in Glasgow on the 28th of February! I played this venue for the first time back in October however I was not the main headline act. However this time I am and I can not wait to see my name up on that venue for one day!! Honestly I'm such a geek I will probably take about a million pics on my phone before I head in for the soundcheck!!!

Anyways please come and support me by getting your tickets for the gig on the events section of my website!!

Lots of Love

Oran Mor!!!
Monday, 09 December 2013 16:27

Hey All,

Everything is going really well for me right now both professionally and personally and it feels amazing to be in such a good place.

Last week I went back and auditioned for Britain's Got Talent again and I was very happy with my performance. I am now waiting to hear back to see if I get to see my big friend Simon Cowell again on the live judges stage of the show :) I sang my single "You're The One" which is in my opinion the best song that I have wrote and I think it shows off my vocals too so fingers crossed I get the chance to prove that I am a credible artist!!

I have been so busy lately I am now trying to organise my time better and make sure I eat really healthy and at regular intervals because when you are gigging and travelling a lot you can start to feel exhausted. So I am making sure I am well prepared while promoting my new song "You're The One".

This weekend I was the headline artist at famous Glasgow music venue "The Oran Mor" which was a dream come true. I also performed with a full live band which was great.  It is the first time that I have rocked up the tracks from my album "Adulation" and they sounded great with a band. The show went really well and I got a chance to channel my inner rock chic. I have been heavily influenced by Debbie Harry as a child as I grew up listening to all of The Blondie album's as my mum was a HUGE fan!!  So going down that route musically is amazing as it is where my heart truly lies.

Anyways thank you again to all of the people who came and bought a ticket it meant a lot to me and its super special to see the same faces at so many of my shows.

I am now concentrating on organising the official single launch party for "You're The One" which is on the 15th of December and I am having it in Saint Judes Nightclub. I'm doing it all on my own and its a tough job but my music is my baby and I like to be in control so I wouldn't have it any other way!!

I'll update you all and let you all know how it went.

Love

Ashley xxx
