About Ashton

Singer (soprano)
London

Ashton’s distinctive and soulful voice has seen her performing internationally from Dubai, France and in and throughout London, where she is based today. Her vocal versatility and the honing of her craft has allowed her to perform a wide range of genres which best lends itself to jazz, soul and pop. Whether it is in the studio, demoing for top producers, or creating the perfect atmosphere for a whole host of private events, Ashton is a sought-after performer who brings a real presence to every stage she graces. Ashton has performed at high profile venues such as Ronnie Scott’s, and The Kensington Hotel and has recently completed a BA (Hons) in vocals at UEL. ‘’Each event is unique to you. From the guest list to the ambiance, it’s personal and should have its own memorable edge that will last in everyone’s minds. The music that I provide is no exception and I’m really passionate about working with my clients to tailor their events to what they envision, to create a special atmosphere not to be forgotten. Specialising in modern classics, Motown, Soul and Jazz, I have gained extensive experience at regular residencies at top London venues and various private functions from birthdays to naming ceremonies and weddings. I have also spent time in residencies abroad and I am fortunate to work with a network of superb musicians. I mostly perform in my acoustic duo, however, I am able to offer a range of musical combinations to suit your vision’’ - Ash
