Ashleigh Eymann
Solo Artist

Ashleigh Eymann is a soul singin', rap slingin' independent and collaborative artist. 

Ashleigh developed a love of musical creation, appreciation, and performance early in her life. Growing up in Vancouver, B.C the mad love affair began with exposure to doo-wop and Motown in her childhood, and starting at age 5 she found inspiration through her years studying piano with the Royal Conservatory. This journey continued into adulthood and Ashleigh intuitively has surrounded herself with musicians and music creators for the past 10 years.

Ashleigh’s style and expertise garnered the attention of many established artists and she has had the good fortune and the opportunity to work with many of those artists and groups in Victoria and Vancouver. She has graced many tracks for others that began with her signature soulful hooks and has begun her own career that crosses genres and styles.

As a member of the hip-hop collective group, The Current (DJ Murge, Ishkan, JustB) in Victoria, Ashleigh performed in Vancouver and across Vancouver Island and opened for many artists including Jurassic 5, Brother Ali, One Self (DJ Vadim, Yarah Bravo, Blu Rum), and The Beatnuts...

Ashleigh has added to her impressive resume and delved into the role of emcee. She continues to write soulful ballads, mash up eras and keep things funky.

Ashleigh is currently working on her first full-length release so stay tuned. Never one to be pinned down, the future is wide open for this exciting and innovative artist.
