Ashley Eriksson

From 1 to 2 years old, Ashley spent a lot of time drawing and talking with her english nanny and, according to Ashley’s mother, “sang in key”. In the 3rd grade, Ashley and her sister got a gig through their piano teacher to sing in a children’s choir for the Ren and Stimpy Christmas Album. In junior high, Ashley spent most of her time at home being grounded, focusing her depression on learning guitar chords and singing Beatles songs. It was during this period that Ashley also had many long conversations about music with her oldest brother, who had just returned home from college. This mentorship from Ashley’s brother also involved teaching her how to do home-recording and multi-tracking with his Tascam Cassette 4-Track. In high school, Ashley’s art teacher encouraged her to go further with visual art and transfer to Los Angeles High School for the Arts (LACHSA). After one semester of commuting to L.A. from Santa Clarita for 4 hours by train and bus,  Ashley transferred back to finish high school in her home town. Visual art brought 16 year-old Ashley her first real job as a muralist, which eventually allowed her to buy recording equipment and an electric bass. At 17, Ashley started writing songs more furiously, and at 18, Ashley purchased a digital 8-track, which she still continues to use for the foundation of her home-recordings. Since then, Ashley has made 7 solo albums, of which only the most recent, Seasonal MusicDecarnarnation, and now Colours, are widely available. Ashley founded the band, LAKE, with Eli Moore, Lindsay Schief, and Kenny Tarantino in the summer of 2006. LAKE has released 5 albums, 3 of which are put out by K records. LAKE is currently finishing up two albums recorded in 2012. Ashley’s latest solo album, Colours, is being released in the spring of 2013, also by K records.
