Could you tell us a little bit about yourself for anyone who may not be as familiar?
My name is Ashley Brinton and I am a singer/songwriter. I just moved to Los Angeles from Florida to continue pursuing my music career. I love it!
How did you get your start in the music industry?
I’ve always loved music. I guess it just came natural to me, it was inevitable that I would always love it and work towards making a career out of it.
What do you believe sets you apart from other young artists?
I think that my style of music is what sets me apart. I love pop but I always want to make it interesting by adding a twist to all of my songs. I want people to be excited by my music and I always have a surprise to share.
Tell us what it is like to write and record with Grammy Award winning producer Cory Rooney, who has also worked with artists such as Jennifer Lopez, Beyoncé, and Michael Jackson.
Working with Cory Rooney is amazing. He’s so talented. Every time I work with him I learn something new, it’s a real privilege.
What is the inspiration behind your latest hit, “Slow Down?”
I wanted to make an upbeat and really catchy song that people will want to listen to over and over. My life is a whirlwind that never slows down, which is how the song came to life!
You have also recently released a holiday cover and music video of the hit song, “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree.” How was the filming of this video?
It was so fun! We decorated the studio with Christmas decorations. We put a Christmas tree in the booth where I was singing and lit Christmas candles. It was a really fun day.
How would you describe your musical style?
My musical style is pop, for sure. I try to have a twist in all of my songs too.
While music may be at the core of your soul, you are also involved with quite a bit of other projects. Tell us about your involvement with dogs and your mission to make sure they are all well taken care of.
I have two Golden Doodles who are the loves of my life. Falling in love with my own dogs made me realize how much joy they can bring into people’s lives. They inspired me to be an advocate for animal rights.
What are some of your goals for 2018? What can fans be on the lookout for?
My goal for 2018 is to create my best music yet. I want to share music with the world that makes people genuinely happy and excited.
Is there anything you would like your fans to know?
I’m so grateful for everyone supporting my dreams and my music. It fills my heart, it’s such an amazing feeling!
