OUR INTERVIEW OF THE MONTH WITH ASHTEN RAY
1.Tell us about your new song? And what’s the story behind it?
My new song is called “Ghost”! The storyline behind the song is a typical relationship story these days. You think you found the one and then a week later they move onto someone else! I wanted to create a relatable song but still vibey!
2.What makes your music unique? And how would you describe it?
What makes my music unique is how versatile I am as an artist, my first release was a sad/slow song, then I did a song with Tech N9ne and now I am doing this pop-punk song! I feel that’s what makes me stand out.
3.Which is the best moment in your musical career that you’re most proud of?
The best moments in my career thus far are hearing how much music speaks to people and moves people. Its the most humbling feeling knowing that your music helps someone through the stuff they are going through.
4.How do you balance your music with other obligations — family, friends, or work?
Balancing music with everyday life can be rough but it’s truly the way you make it. I put time back to hang out with family and friends but I know that I have to keep going in this dream that I’m pursuing.
5.What advice would you give to aspiring musicians?
The advice I’d give for aspiring artists is just kept going. If you haven’t started, what are you waiting for? If i didn’t have the courage to drop my first song, I wouldn’t be where I am today and loving every second of it.
6.If you had one message to give to your fans, what would it be?
The one message for my fans, I LOVE YOU. Without you, I wouldn’t be who I am today.
7.What’s next for you? Any upcoming projects?
I have some big projects coming soon in September! I can’t say with who yet, but its worth the wait!!
