Biography

The package is deceiving; fresh-faced with a warm smile and gentle voice, singer-songwriter Ashley Robertson is a young woman with an already impressive amount of critical and international acclaim.

Born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Ashley’s interest in country music was sparked early by listening to her parent’s recordings of great artists such as Patsy Cline and Johnny Cash. As soon as she was old enough Ashley enrolled in Belmont University’s famed Music Business program, where she majored in business administration, audio production and studied classical piano.

There in Nashville she met her first producer Allen Frizzell of the famous Lefty Frizzell family. Ashley’s debut album was recorded at Hilltop Studios and released in 2003 to critical and international success. She became one of the youngest songwriters to have two solo written songs hit the top 100 at Canadian country radio, “Little League Tryouts” & “But He”, complete with a cross Canada radio tour and three separate trips to Europe and the U.K. to tour & perform.

Her first internationally released single “Living In Misery” gained the top spot on the American Independent, U.K. & European country charts and led to her winning the 2005 European CMA Favorite Female Vocalist of the Year award. The accompanying music video received play on CMT Canada and the Country Music Channel of Australia. She again topped the Independent, European & UK country charts in 2006 with her self-written bluegrass single “A Letter” and began earnest work writing and recording her sophomore album. According to Larry Delaney of Country Music News she “steps into full control of the project by writing all of the songs, and producing.”
