Editor’s Note: I am working to incorporate news into ‘Ashleigh, Not Ashley’s’ repetoire. I will tag each post as such and monitor everyone’s response to these post. I’ll continue to do this throughout the month of August to see if I will continue. Thanks for your continued support!

There is no big machine behind them, and you feel like it’s coming from an honest place. I have my own recording label, Wondaland Art Society. I’ll be bringing forward artists like Roman GianArthur, Deep Cotton, St. Beauty, and they all play their own instruments, they write and produce their own records, they’re playing live onstage. I think it is time for that era. I actually just picked up the guitar a year and a half ago, so I’ll be playing live.
