Its official, Facebook is good for more than keeping tabs on old friends. A few days ago, I was surfacing through my timeline and an interesting picture caught my eye. So, I decide to check the post out. It was a SoundCloud link to No Worries (The Pursuit) byAshaya. Now I am not usually one to just listen to music, that’s not in the top 50, but I was somewhat familiar with the artist already. Once I navigated to SoundCloud her song started to play. Mellow bells lead into the first verse and smooth drums. Certainly a track that makes you nod your head.
The lyrics have a relaxing vibe. Listening to the words provided a calming escape. The hook could make the listener literately feel like they have no worries. Not only is the hook catchy, the song includes a well place scripture reference. I only noticed because it is one I memorized as a child. The lyrics are solidified by Ashaya’s beautiful vocal performance. Her voice is truly dope and could land her among the R&B greats like Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Beyonce. She has a strong Neo Soul/R&B sound that will leave your ears wanting more. Ashaya’s sound is certainly taking her big places.
Make sure to snag your free download of No Worries …… while it last. Hosted on her SoundCloud page with several other fresh tracks that will keep your musical taste satisfied. Ashaya pays tribute to Georgia, her home state, with a cover of “Georgia On My Mind” by Ray Charles. She delivers an outstanding cover that would be awesome to hear her perform live. Keep your ears ready and eyes open for this rising star. I hope she does a show in DC soon! If so I’ll definitely be there.
