‘The Eighth Note’ is 8 quick Questions with Wellington Musicians.
A chance for us to catch up with people & see what they’re up to, or introduce you to a new musician/band and their music. Up next is Ashley Alexander.


Who are you? Tell us a bit about your music:
My names is Ashley Alexander, I’m a funk soul singer songwriter/producer from Paraparaumu, currently settled in between the smoke and suburbia of Auckland. My music is soul music for those who need a green light, skipping the noise and traffic of 9-5 life.

What have you been working on lately? Any new tracks or albums on the way?
So much music to come. The Debut EP “Staring at the sun for too long” will be released later this year followed with a bunch of shows around New Zealand this summer.

Where is the best place people can follow you & find your music?
Spotify, my Website, Facebook, Instagram, and Soundcloud.

What were the 3 most influential albums to you growing up?
I was an moody teenager..
A rush of blood to the head – Coldplay
Black gives way to blue – Alice in chains
Lost & Found – Mudvayne

Which other Wellington musician (s) would you most like to work with?
My boy Louis Baker would be a great musical mind to explore.

What is your favourite Wellington venue to play in?
San Fran bathhouse was a trip.

In your songwriting or composing (or the band’s songwriting) how do the compositions and songs take shape?
I gravitate to the keys or guitar to create a base to work off, from there I form a whole track. Melodies and chords always come first.

Where/when is your next gig?
Announcing some end of year locations soon!
