About
Hi I'm Ashkenah I have been writing poetry since I was 7 and song writing since the age of 12. I like to create large complex sounds combining live recordings and synthesised instruments. The style I write is influenced by several genres,from rock to reggae to psytrance and ambient soundscapes. I enjoy experimenting! The purpose of the music is to spread a message of a positive future and how to get there, a message of love and strength and peace in the face of injustice and ecological destruction. Our relationship to nature, or Gaia, is one of my key themes. Using the power of music and tight, hard hitting lyrics, I want to inspire people. Interested in hearing from anyone who shares this mission, but right now I'm particularly looking for a female vocalist to creatively record lead and support vocals for pre-existing songs. Message me for more info and examples of my current unpublished work. Peace Ashkenah
