About

Welcome to my Patreon!

I'm a full-time performance artist with a part-time gig at the Library. For the past 6 years, I've been
  • writing, producing, and performing original music,
  • singing with cover bands at weddings, corporate functions, and music venues, 
  • performing improv comedy and organizing shows, 
  • hosting open mics for my communities, 
  • playing wizard rock in libraries, Harry Potter festivals, and conferences,
  • teaching and developing creative programming at the Library

It's been an amazing, fulfilling journey so far, with great highs and lows. It's the artist's journey, and I'm committed to spending my life sharing my love for singing and performing with you.

So far, you haven't seen much of me on Youtube, and my studio recordings are pretty sparse (so far!). I live for the live show, for the moments we share with each other, breathing the same air and energy.

It's been dandy up to this point, but I have many supporters and friends around the country and the world(!!) that I have been unable to reach because I mainly work in real time/space.

It's time for something different!

I kicked off my Patreon in early 2018 with a two-month-long residency in Indonesia. While there, I said I would "hone my craft, meet interesting people, and expand the limits of what's possible" and HEY I DID THAT!

Since then, I've been using Patreon to send you stories from my adventures, new thoughts on life, and general project updates. My newsletters arrive once per month, and I occasionally post essays, poetry, and works-in-progress.

I also host an monthly online concert called Lunch Hour Live that will be open to everyone, but will be funded by YOU. In practice, I've missed a few months in the past due to housing insecurity and travel. If you're down with rolling with it, come on in! Everyone thanks you for sponsoring these free online concerts, and I look forward to them every month. :)

Please join me in this endeavor and lend me your support. I am forever grateful to be your artist and to provide you comfort when you're suffering, passion when you need a push, and love through the shadows. Thank you so much for your support over the years. I wouldn't be here without it!

Yours,
Ashley

I will release to patrons-only a small collection of unreleased songs. Will you get something from college-era Ashley? Or gasp! high school Ashley?? Will it be a fully realized song or just a song idea? Who knows!! It WILL 100% be genuinely-felt and original :)
