In Spite of these uncertain times we find ourselves in, Ashley BA Music presents us with her third "Homegrown" single, 'With Me', released on October 13th. A time of prayer turned into a worshipful song by artist Ashley BA.
A co-writing effort with UK artist Esther Sardar, Ashley shares her new single, 'With Me'. A strong instrumental blend of acoustic guitar, simple keys and a steady percussive beat flowing steadily into the beautifully crafted lyrics and vocal melody and harmonies of Ashley BA. A song for the repeat play and your newest worship playlist. May Ashley's song of prayer turn into your prayer song as you lean in closer to God.
"'With Me' came during a personal prayer time session. I was going through a period where I had decided to become “reacquainted” with God again, and get to know Him for myself. This was also a time where I felt I was at a major crossroads in my life, and not sure which direction to take. During this period I would spend a lot of time away from other people and distractions like my phone and TV, just to take time to pray, worship, wait on God and journal. As it was a personal season that I was going through, at times it would feel lonely with no one to express my journey to or what I was going through.
However I was reminded that even when I am alone, I am never really by myself. That God would never leave me or forsake me, and that He would lead me in the way I should go, showing the right path I should take. This season taught me that at times when God is doing a work in us it does require a period of solitude, to shut out the noise and focus on Him. Even then we are never alone."
Ashley BA Music is a UK based Christian singer and song-writer. Growing up, Ashley was heavily influenced by her mother’s love for singing and music. Ashley first began singing in her local church youth choir from the age of 14, where she went on to lead worship at her local church while at university. On the hunt to take her voice beyond the four walls of the church, Ashley found herself singing in various bands including MOBO nominated "Desire to Worship God (DTWG)" and Manchester-based "Simply Vessels".
After moving to Bristol to begin her career as a research scientist, Ashley found herself at a turning point in her life. The recent passing away of her mother, coupled with the strangeness of adjusting to a new city inspired Ashley to literally put pen to paper and express herself in the form of songwriting. Feeling led to share her creative flow, Ashley made the leap to break out as a solo artist, and emerged onto the UK Gospel scene in 2018 with her debut single “Still God”. She has since won the 2019 Christian Talent Award for “best singer”, where she was also nominated for “best solo artist”. Ashley currently leads worship at her local church in Bristol, and regularly
