Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
Hi, my name is Ashlynne Vince. I’m 22 years old but I’ve been around country music a good long while! I made my first trip to Nashville with my mom when I was 15 years old and now, I’ve been down there living on my own for almost 3 (wonderful) years. I recently released my 8th song to Canadian Country Radio and I’ve never been more excited about any song as I am about this one!
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
My music has gone through an evolution as I have been working out my sound. Before releasing to Canadian Country Radio, I released two Pop songs in the USA. Both charted Top 40 on the Billboard Indicator Charts – but I hadn’t written either of them and I never felt like those songs were “me”. More recently, I have written and recorded several songs – these songs are about me and my life experiences and my hope is that people can identify with my music, that my music can heal, or that someone will think “that’s exactly what I’m dealing with!”. I often write with my mom because I feel like she “gets me”. Also, she’s an English teacher at a university, so sometimes she can “translate” my thoughts using words that make sense. I also write with my producer, Nathan Meckel, in Nashville and he often introduces other seasoned writers to come on in with a project or a concept that I’ve been working with.
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
As I live in Nashville, I play almost daily down on Lower Broadway (either at Toostsies, Honky Tonk Central, or Rippys) but I’ve also done shows at just about every bar on the strip. If I’m playing with a full band, you can bet your butt that the show will be extremely high energy and full of excitement – those are the kinds of shows that require both an entertainer and a musician. If you happen to catch me doing an acoustic set – you will see the soften, more genuine, authentic side of me as I will really be into my music and “in my feels”. I just finished a singer-songwriter show in Canada at the Moonshine Cafe hosted by Dave Woods, and it was more of a Listening Room experience. I love the balance of both types of shows because I feel that you need variety to really showcase yourself as a full artist.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
Definitely “Home” … it’s at radio now. I just finished up an amazing video filmed in Banff to go along with it. I’m very proud of this song!! I wrote it, wrote the music for it, and LOVE performing it. I won’t say directly who inspired it…but there is a little romance involved
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands/artists?
I just came home from the CCMAs and I saw so many amazing performances!! I love the harmonies of High Valley and the Abrams (family harmonies are so awesome!) Outside of country music, I LOVE Alanis Morissette and often cover her music down in Nashville.
I’m Jenna, and I am the founder and editor of Canadian Beats. I have had a strong love for Canadian music, which started many years ago. I have a passion for promoting these talented Canadian bands and artists, and that’s how Canadian Beats came to be. I am so proud of what it has become over the last few years, with many talented music lovers and writers coming together to spread the word of Canada’s music.
