Ashli is an uncompromising songwriter with the expert calibre of a trained vocalist. Raised in New Jersey and Western Sydney, Ashli makes R&B and pop with purpose, telling stories that can’t help but be relatable. Seeking unity with her audience and peers, Ashli’s songwriting reflects the beauty found in interpersonal connection and the human experience.

The “coming-of-age” concept is paramount to the music Ashli makes, but it’s malleable in its approach. Everyone is always “coming-of-age”, and Ashli’s complex harmonies, lush vocals, and focused songwriting contextualises these moments.

Ashli’s emergence on the national music landscape arrived following successful mentorship programs with Sampa the Great and Gretta Ray. Keeping company with like minded artists, Ashli is a Western Sydney prodigy, and one whose rise is inevitable. Slick production and stunning vocals support Ashli’s pen in all the ways it needs to be: her music is coming to life.
