about

DownBeat Magazine's "Editors' Pick," “Beauty Indestructible” shares heartfelt coming of age jazz-folk with inspirational lyrics. Ashley has morphed from her jazz-singing background in favor of home-grown grooves interlaced with emotional orchestrated sections reminiscent of musical theatre at times. With lyrics that reckon with fear and freedom, this album is loaded with songs of overcoming and arriving.

Soaring, catchy melodies are supported by rich jazz chords, accessible instrumental solos, horn fills, Rhodes organ, and layered, sometimes quirky, vocal harmonies. The instrumentation varies from a voice, bass, and drums trio to a seven-piece ensemble which includes guitar and cello. There is an overarching joy throughout captured in tender, but strong, passionate vocals.
