about

Erica Ashley has dedicated her life to music and at 14 that might sound a bit unremarkable. What is remarkable is that in only a handful of years she has developed a voice that people are already comparing to Demi Lovato and other contemporary artists twice her age.

It’s no surprise that Erica was drawn to music since her father and uncle were both professional musicians. This family connection led to her first studio experience only weeks after her 13th birthday. She recorded a series of reference vocals and her voice was responsible for placements and track selections with well known publishers and music industry professionals, including Jake McKim of Birch Street Music who worked side by side with Beyonce Knowles.

A year later Erica signed with PopRiot Music Group and she dove into recording headfirst. What came out of those sessions is nothing short of amazing and her single “Where Are We Now?” is proof of that. Passion, maturity, depth, and range - that’s a tall order for anyone but almost unheard of from such a young artist.

Since then her music and voice have landed her performances on CBS Television, direct support for Travis Garland & Colby O'Donis Fashionably Late Tour, and on top of that she is #1 on ReverbNation's pop chart. Take a moment and listen for yourself. 14 years old and the possibilities are endless.

“Listening to “Where Are We Now?” will immediately bring comparisons of Kelly Clarkson, Katy Perry and even a pop-sounding Carrie Underwood. Here’s the kicker though…she’s only 14. She has decided to go after her dreams and seems to be on the way to achieving them. We’ll all be there saying I remember when she was….”
— Victor Alfieri - Wordkrapht Magazine

"I have been blessed to be Erica’s vocal coach for several years, and I knew the first time I heard her sing that I was listening to a true talent!! It was a joy to direct her in Studio Performance Academy’s musical productions. Erica is not only a wonderful vocalist, but an incredible performer! Her future is unlimited!"
— Ellen Papa, Studio Performance Academy

"Erica was fun to work with and an awesome musician. She tackled a wide variety of songs, and made them her own. She is a true pro at a young age!”
— Jake Nielsen, School of Rock

Track Name: Where Are We Now?
So long ago when I met you
Swept away thought I knew you
A masquerade your big charade
Was always in my head

You need to know that i miss you
You're never home it's an issue
You walked away without a trace
And i'm alone again

Where are we now that you have found a way
to make believe and runaway
If shooting stars won't make you come around
Where are we now?

All of the smiles and the memories
Break me down drive me crazy
We were painting pictures on the sun
But now the lights gone out

Walking alone counting street lights
I get lost in the moonlight
I close my eyes and say goodnight
I won't be scared again

Where are we now with nothing left to say
I make believe I'll be okay
Wishing wells won't turn this love around
Where are we now?

Where are we now?
You always told me that you wanted love
Where are we now?
You didn't think that i was good enough
Where are we now?
Guess it's time for me to face the truth
Where are we now?
You're just a stranger that I never knew
Where are we now?

Face of an angel
Smile of the devil
Say another word
But you're not so clever
Go away...I'll say goodbye tonight

Where are we now?
You always told me that you wanted love
You didn't think that i was good enough
Guess it's time for me to face the truth
You're just a stranger that I never knew
Where are we now?
Track Name: Shine
he said hello and then goodbye
the rain was falling from your eyes
if only you could hold his heart again

boys don't cry but
this one lied
and you're worth more
than his blue goodbyes

never thought it end this way
never gonna be the same
let go of mistakes you made
starting with a brand new day

time for you to stand your ground
you're shining from the inside out

they're never gonna bring you down
you're shining from the inside out

you saw your castle burning down
then you went and lost your crown
she ran away to save herself again

Hearts collide
and you both tried
but you're worth more
than a cheap goodbye

never thought it end this way
never gonna be the same
let go of mistakes you made
starting with a brand new day

time for you to stand your ground
you're shining from the inside out

they're never gonna bring you down
you're shining from the inside out

open your eyes
see the light from inside
Day after day you will fight
You're alive
Track Name: For Never & Ever
i'm counting the days it's almost a year since
i took this picture a small souvenir
a summer crush was just enough
to keep me holding on

driving around with the radio on and
i make believe they're playing our song
and i can see you next to me
i reach out and then you're gone

the day that we met was a storybook start
but now this whole fairytale's falling apart
tonight I reach the end

now all i'm left with are handwritten letters
sealed with a kiss and all full of glitter
and never sent this heart won't mend
the truth is sinking in

I can't pretend that you'll come around now
you're moving on and i'm leaving town and
all i have is this photograph
the last time i held your hand

the day that we met was a storybook start
but now this whole fairytale's falling apart
tonight we reach the end
for never and ever, never and ever
so tonight I'll say goodbye

the day that we met was a storybook start
but now this whole fairytale's falling apart
tonight I'll say goodbye
for never and ever, never and ever
so tonight I'll say goodbye
