With her powerful vocals and her quirky, deep seated lyrics, she challenges the tired preconceptions and conventions this generation has inherited. Her pop-folk tunes aspire to playfully challenge the cycle in which we are made to be something that we are not. Through her music, she hopes to navigate the complexities of being young in today’s world.
Ashlinn began to write her first songs at the age of 16 and released her self- titled debut EP, along with first single #Battleships, which made iTunes top 40 and dominated the airwaves, charting on various stations across the country.
Last year, her release of #Need Your Love with Dr. Bone, produced by the great Sketchy Bongo, was a Coke Studios ZA hit and the teen’s pop single #Nineteen charted on 5fm and Jacaranda, sone of South Africa’s largest national radio stations. She was also able to add a single #Finding Home to the RADA Unearthed Album 1, a charity close to her heart.
