Citing her inspirations as Syd and Sade, Ash is a former YouTube sensation (under her full name, Ashley Lilinoe) who stepped out of the limelight a couple of years back to move to a remote farm in Canada with her girlfriend and spend her days working on the farm and playing guitar.
Of course she didn’t stop making music though and here is her first official release, a blissful starRo produced R&B jam titled “Lover Friend”.
“On the purest side of the Lover is one that embarks on a journey of healing their heart through loving it’s self unconditionally; that is you being your greatest friend,” Ash says of the track’s origin. “In this story I then go on meeting reflections of myself, and had loved each one. Innocent and confusing, it was all healing and the coming to learning that our friendship will always be the most magical connection that I’ve truly desired.
To end, it comes full circle. How the song starts and who it started with is now and will always be that one eternal, Lover friend.”
