With a fresh perspective to crafting musical worlds, twenty-six year old multi-instrumentalist/composer Sean Ashe has quickly made a name for himself, as one of the most exciting up and coming original voices in the music scene.
Born in Chicagoland, and raised by a loving (and musical family), Sean has always found himself immersed in a world of creativity. Reaching out to a pair of drumsticks before he could walk, it was obvious to those around him that Sean was destined to become a musician. At the age of three, Sean received a drum set as a Christmas present, and shortly thereafter he started creating his own beats, fills, and experimenting with the drum set.
Sean found a curiosity for the fretboard at the age of thirteen, and soon became obsessive with practicing and honing his voice on the instrument. Fueled by his own desire for exploration, Sean continued to absorb information and integrate it into his art. Sean taught himself composition, audio engineering/production, bass guitar, and piano, and after several years, released his long awaited debut album ‘Flux’ on January 12th, 2016.
Written, recorded/engineered, and mixed by Sean, “Flux” has garnered overwhelmingly positive reviews, and continues to reach new audiences every day. To date, Flux has sold over several thousand copies, and received over 750,000 streams.
Since the release of Flux, Sean has been keeping himself busy with session work, teaching, learning, and of course.. diligently writing more music to be released in Q4 2019 and 2020.
”What have you been doing since Flux?!” - Everyone (rightfully so!)
“I’ve been writing constantly, and I have never felt more proud of what I’m doing. I’ve been keeping very quiet, to insure that I am focused on the core of what I do… the music! Plus, a little mystery never hurt anyone ;) But, like most artistic pursuits, I’ve had my fair share of road blocks and redirects along the way. I’m learning that with any challenge, comes the opportunity to expand ones’ vision. Right now, I feel extremely grateful for where I’m at artistically, and as a person, and I’m genuinely excited to bring this new music to listeners ears. In addition to hitting the road in 2020 and bringing my music to different people in different places, I fully intend on more regular releases.”
”When I was a kid I didn’t take the drums too seriously, even though it was what I gravitated towards. But, in 2017 I had a strong urge to return to my roots, and a familiar feeling of pure obsession took hold yet again. I’m performing on one song on the upcoming release, a song titled ‘Ocean’. It’s hard to balance all of these pursuits, but I’ve never felt more whole.”
