Hey! If you found this blog then you must like music. Or you must be really fucking bored 🙂
I’m Ashley, and I consider myself to be a nice music snob. This blog is a personal outlet for me to share the music and artists that I enjoy listening to.
A bit about my music background:
I have a Bachelors of Science degree in Communications. After graduation (which was a long time ago), I worked for two music-related companies where I primarily focused on music programming, talent booking, live events and web production. I worked directly with more artists and record label executives than I can or care to remember. Some were great to work with (I’m talking to you Bruno Mars, Mumford & Sons and The Band Perry!) and most were not.
While I’m glad I got to have many exciting experiences (i.e. sharing an elevator ride with Rascal Flatts, interviewing Mumford & Sons on “The Ashley Show” and witnessing The Script drink their first root beer) at the end of the day, if you’re not Katy Perry, Irving Azoff or LA Reid, the music industry is an unstable, underpaid soul-sucking place to work (at least, that was my experience of it.) But that doesn’t change the fact that I still love music in general.
The music you will hear on my blog:
During my years working in music, I was introduced to a vast variety of genres and artists from around the globe so if you’re looking for new music, I’m your girl. However, I personally do not listen to Metal or Heavy Rap so in those cases, no I’m not you’re girl (nothing against either genre though). Oh also, I do NOT like Taylor Swift so you will not be hearing anything by her on my blog.
Additional Info About the Author:
My interests aside from music include reading, writing (hence the blog) and psychology. As for work, I am now happily integrating myself into a promising career in healthcare administration.
