Driven by heartfelt lyrics and soul-tingling melodies the California born, Nashville based artist, Ashley Hess enamors and draws audiences in. She intertwines Pop with R&B, backed by an emotional connection that produces an astonishingly powerful performance. Hess feels, “There is no better feeling than going though the process of creating a song, performing that song, and having people connect with the song that I created. Those are the moments I live for. Getting out there, playing my music and establishing a connection.”
Although much of her music has a theme of sadness and heartbreak, there is a layer of hope and vulnerability that inspires. Her raw performance is contrasted with her infectiously goofy personality that shines through on stage between songs, as well as off stage and provides a balance that makes her relatable. It has allowed her to share the stage with national acts such as Andy Grammer, Us the Duo, and Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons. Ashley grew up singing in church but music wasn’t at the forefront. It wasn’t until 6 years ago after moving to Utah that she started digging into writing and performing. There she started creating her own music which ignited her passion.
Hess has released three original singles, one of which, “Running”, was release in August of 2018. She is currently writing and preparing to record her first original EP that is set to release in 2019.
