Switching on the Lights.
Thursday, 24 November 2016 16:45

It was so good to be back on stage performing my own music at The Cumbernauld Christmas Christmas Lights Switch on Event last week on the 12th of November. I was perfoming on both stages at The Antonine Shopping Centre with Steve McKenna from Real Radio and the old shopping centre stage. I really enjoyed this gig and the audience seemed to love my perfomance so all in all I was very happy. I also got fantastic feedback about my current track "Falling". I then sang a couple of Christmas songs "Rockin around the Christmas Tree" and "White Christmas". I can't believe that Christmas is only 4 weeks away and I don't have one present in. I will probably leave it to Christmas Eve like I always do every year :)

This week I was honored to be asked to sing at the 25th Anniversary Party of Specialzed Security who have the contract for Redding Festival and T in The Park. The event was at The CEO's mansion and I had to sing an hours set. Honestly his house is the most amazing thing I have ever seen he has an actual bar/nightclub in his house. Maybe if I work hard at my singing that will be me one day but to be honest I love my wee flat in the west end.  I really loved my outfit that I choose for the event it is one of my favourite dresses in my closet. I bought it for a wedding this year. The only down part of the event was the fact I had my car with me which meant I couldnt enjoy the free bar...gutted lol

Don't forget to give me a follow on snapchat ashstarcollins to see more of what I have been up to.

I am super excited to announce that I will be back on the road before Christmas touring around high schools in Glasgow to promote my current single "Falling". The school tour will also highlight the issues of domestic violence and depression which is something that has effected me directly.

I am hoping that the tour will educate and inspire young girls to respect and stand up for themselves in relationships when it comes to abuse of any kind emotional or physical.

"Falling" was written in 2012 as a direct result of finding myself in a seriously abusive relationship. The lyrics of the song are honest and powerful and I hope it encourages others to speak up about this issue instead of suffering alone.

I performed my last school tour in 2014 and sang at 25 schools. It has been the most rewarding experience of my career so far and I can't wait to get back out there and meet all of the kids again that I met last year and hopefully gain even more fans.

If you would like to book your school on the tour and your high school is based in the Strathclyde area email  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Can't wait to see all my fans again

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 Ashley xxx

O2 ABC Success
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
