Biography

Singer, songwriter, and guitar enthusiast Ashley Taylor grew up on the likes of Loretta Lynn, Johnny Cash, Bon Jovi, and the Dixie Chicks. Her love of country music was inspired by listening to her grandmother’s old albums and CDs while living in Bakersfield, California. Ashley feels that her life in music is part of God’s plan for her ever since she received a guitar for Christmas that she’d asked for in prayer when she was 17-years-old.

While Ashley’s time in California saw her attending audio school and working as a studio session player, it was a friendship with hit songwriter Clay Mills (Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It by Darius Rucker) that resulted in Ashley taking the important step of moving to Nashville and being mentored by Mills. And she is already making waves with her debut single Play Like Ken now getting radio airplay on dozens of stations in Tennessee, Texas, California, and Arizona. Additionally, her debut EP, entitled Bakersfield, is set to be released in 2017.

Not only has Ashley been performing live throughout the United States, she has had songs she has written recorded by numerous up-and-coming artists. Her single Dear Johnny Cash was cut by Matt Wynn of American Idol and was performed live on ABC’s Late Night Show with Pascal. Another one of Ashley’s originals, More Than Wood, was a finalist in the national Write About Jesus songwriting competition. She also wrote Thank You, the theme song for the Second Tour campaign benefitting America’s Veteran.

Ashley is an advocate of helping those in need. While living in California, she created an organization to assist and uplift single moms and their children. The Care Foundation helps single moms by purchasing groceries and other necessary items while providing them with gifts and services to make them feel loved and cared for. Ashley also donates to Compassion International, using the money to sponsor a young girl in Haiti with whom Ashley has regular communication.

Ashley Taylor is sponsored by Bose,64 Audio, Daisy Rock Girl Guitars, and Steve Clayton Custom Guitar Picks Inc.

    Ever been listening to country music and wish the girls had a bit more musical ability and didn't just hide behind a microphone. Ashley Taylor might be just what your looking for her single right now is Play Like Ken and this girl means it. She's from Bakersfield which might has well be known as the Nashville of the West Coast with the likes of Dwight Yoakam Merle Haggard and Red Simpson all calling Bakersfield home.That town just can't be beat when it comes to country music and there own style and sound ! With that being said Ashley brings all that and her guitar to the table, if I had to compare her to anyone in country music right now it'd be Clare Dunn who I have a ton of respect for. I hope everyone enjoys reading this interview and takes the time to listen to her music.

    All Things Music
    For the fans that haven't heard of you or haven't even heard a song what do they need to know about you?
    Ashley Taylor
    I would say if there's one things fans need to know about me it's that I love what I do! I really enjoy writing songs, performing & growing in my craft! I can't imagine doing anything else.

    All Things Music
    What are your musical influences is there a song by the artist a whole album or just there whole catalog of music that draws you to them?
    Ashley Taylor
    I have a wide range of influences ! I love to listen to any album by Loretta Lynn, Taylor Swift or Brandy Clark ! I also really enjoy bands like Bon Jovi, hearts and Nickelback! There is a lot of great music out there!

    All Things Music
    What is your favorite song you've recorded, what makes it important to you? (Obviously most people say there single here and it might be, but feel free to pick a personal track and talk about it)
    Ashley Taylor
    I would say my favorite song that I've ever recorded is a song I wrote about my stepdad! It's a song called "Dad To Me" ! It is definitely the most personal song I've ever written! You see I was abandoned by my biological dad and that song tells the story of mine and my stepdad's relationship! He is such a great guy and I am so happy that I get to call him my dad!

    All Things Music
    If you could open up for three people alive or dead who would it be and where?(Feel free to explain why)
    Ashley Taylor
    I would love to open up for Johnny Cash hands-down! I am just a huge cash fan! Lol Loretta Lynn would also for sure be on that list! I'm such a big fan though I don't know if I could speak much less sing after meeting her! Lol I also wouldn't mind opening for Kacey Musgraves . I think she is a great writer! I would love to hang out with her and if she wanted after the show to write a song I would be more than down! LOL

    All Things Music
    Outside of music what are your favorite hobbies, also any favorite sports or sports teams?
    Ashley Taylor
    Outside of music I really like to go hiking, shooting,watch movies & honestly just hang out with friends! If I'm with the right people I can have fun doing pretty much anything! LOL
