ABOUT ASHLEY

 

Ashley LeBlanc is an award-winning country music singer/songwriter born and raised in Brantford, Ontario.  Singing Martina McBride and Shania Twain shortly after she learned to talk was the first sign she had a passion for music!

 

Ashley’s sound can be described as Patsy Cline meets The Chicks meets modern-day Kacey Musgraves. She combines the heartfelt honesty of traditional country with the powerful vocals of Natalie Maines, and the lyrical craft of today’s country.

 

After learning how to play guitar at a young age, learning to

sing came naturally. After hearing Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn

on her Dad’s jukebox, she knew the world of country music

and classic songwriting was where she belonged.  After her

Uncle gave her a classic record player she started collecting old

vinyl LPs, and studied the songs from a time in traditional

country where talent and strong voices mattered most. Ashley

began singing in church, school, at retirement homes and local

coffee shops. She was able to improve her skills on guitar and

vocals, while developing a strong interest in writing her own

music. After releasing her first EP at 13, she continued to write

songs and take lessons, learning from talented musicians who

mentored her along the way.

 

In 2019, she released her debut album “The Luckiest Girl in the

World”. Ashley wrote all the music and was joined on the album

by some of Canada’s top musicians including Steve Petrie,

Steve Smith and Sean O’Grady. After a successful CD release

party, her songs received airplay on indie radio stations

across the globe—Canada, Germany, Australia, Texas

and Nashville. 

 

Ashley performs most weekends near her hometown at summer

and fall fairs, charity events, local pubs and breweries.  She has

sung the National Anthem for the OHL’s Hamilton Bulldogs, performed at the famous St. George Applefest, and on CHCH Morning Live in Hamilton.  Since March 2020, she has been performing on Facebook and

Instagram live to stay connected with her fanbase.

 

In August 2020, her album won International Gold Album of the year at the (ISSA) International Singer Songwriter Awards, and her video for "Rain" won a bronze award for Best International Video.  In September of 2020, she began studying community music at Wilfrid Laurier University at and has been co-writing new music with talented songwriters such as Douglas Romanow, Mariya Stokes, Jane Bach, Benita Hill, Antionette Olesen, Tori Hathaway and Eva Jerde.

 

In November of 2021, she will be releasing her first Christmas single, entitled Old Fashioned Christmas which she co-wrote with Douglas Romanow and Benita Hill. The track was mixed and produced by Douglas Romanow. It will be released to all music platforms on Friday Nov 5/21.

 

Ashley is now working on a new full album. Look for new music coming in 2022!

NOTABLE COMMENTS

"I love Ashley LeBlanc's work because when it comes to her music she has an old soul and her work ethic is A+.
She likes Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn and Buddy Holly just to name a few! I love her voice, her song choices and her beautiful videos. Ashley is also an amazing song-writer! One has only to check out her latest album entitled ''THE LUCKIEST GIRL IN THE WORLD''.
Since the beginning of Covid 19, Ashley has been doing Facebook and Instagram lives every Friday at 7 PM EDT and let me tell you that they are among the most enjoyable LIVES I've ever seen. 

To top it all, she is from Brantford Ontario, Canada!" - Adélard Bérubé

"Such a beautiful young lady with so much passion. Her music touches your heart and soul" - Audrey Pitcher

"You are a talented young lady! Keep singing and showing the world your gift!" - Corinne Elizabeth Cowherd

"If you’re going to accomplish anything in this world it takes hard work and determination. Or so they tell me. I don’t know what most of you were doing when you were sixteen, but I must say my early teen years were filled with everything but. I know that the words “I’m totally a morning person,” surely never left my mouth! In fact, they still haven’t. Meeting Ashley LeBlanc gave me a new outlook on just what a young woman is capable of when she puts her mind to something and has a goal in her sites." - Heidi Hopf
