Ashley Artisan
Ashley Artisan
Born in Memphis Tennessee, Ashley Artisan names her hometown as a city of creativity. Growing up in Memphis allowed her to grow in a culture of art and a culture of music with a variety of genres. One genre in particular was highlighted by her father’s early career in hip hop as a rap artist. A young Ashley Artisan was forming under the influence and love of what her father’s lyrics could make her feel. One moment marked her journey to pursue music when her father rapped about his brother’s death to his family. The whole family was flooded with tears along with her. The power of words became evident to her in the lyrics of her father from the pain in his heart. After that experience, She started rapping in 4th grade on the playground at recess where her classmates would gather around to listen. If she wasn’t rapping there, she was making beats on her starter Casio with those cheesy built- in sounds.

Now Ashley has combined all of her influences in a mass projection through her own art. Ashley Artisan is an artist who explores every possible opportunity for creativity. She has a very experimental and innovative approach to her art and it is well seen through her work. Her work is an all-inclusive art package. She has a mean stroke in visual arts, an intricate and lyrical flow, a fun and groovy vibe, along with a unique deliverance of truth through story-telling. She is exciting to see in action and so out of the box with her jazzy, EDM, and futuristic hip hop sound and vibrant art.
