Country Artist Ashley Wineland is Making Waves While Winning New Fans
By: T&T Management and Booking Agency LLC
Her poise and comfortability on stage far surpass her chronological age--and no wonder--the stage has been her domain since the tender age of 14. It is quite evident that she is "at home", as she moves effortlessly about--all the while flashing that thousand watt smile and engaging her fans in way that they KNOW she's glad they stopped by. And you can bet they'll be back for "seconds". For Ashley's fans are her focus and are EVERYTHING. The highlight of her week are her Friday night broadcasts on Facebook, where she chats about her upcoming appearances and gregariously interacts with her devoted followers. These broadcasts are peppered with lively banter and impromptu jams. Yes, she even takes "requests", for she aims to please! Often Ashley is accompanied by her talented band (Nicholas Sanderson, Ben O'Donnell and Jacob Johnston)--with the occasional interjection by some of her "fur babies"--who are known to poke their noses in on the festivities--
Although her appeal is worldwide, she makes her home in Glendale, Arizona. This High School honor student's schedule is anything but typical. In between reading, writing and 'rithmetic, she is busy with her Producer Bryan Kuban of Kube Music working on her upcoming CD, the follow-up to her critically-acclaimed freshman offering "Family Business". She is also a much sought after favorite on the festival circuit, and her whirlwind appearance schedule is demanding, to say the least. Although talking with Ashley, it's all par for the course. She is grateful to share her "musical stories" with her fans, and every single opportunity to entertain an audience is treated as her honor…and a chance to make some new friends. One peek at her "meet and greet" line when she's left the stage only verifies her mass appeal. And she has a kind word and a ready smile for her fans, posing for photo after photo, signing autographs and "cutting up"…it's all in a day's work for Ashley--if you can call having an absolute blast, "work".
Her schedule would rival any of today's mainstream Country stars. She recently stormed the stages of West Valley Fair and Music Fest (supporting John Michael Montgomery), Ostrich Festival (supporting Parmalee), Road to Country Thunder and most recently THE Country Thunder. She will also again be representing Country radio station KVRD FM 105.7 at the "Battle of the Bands" in Prescott Valley, AZ, on May 21st.
Her interview "dance card" is filling up nicely as well. Besides her numerous radio and television appearances, she has graced the cover of the global publication ION Indie Magazine and was again featured in a follow-up article, as the magazine tagged along as Ashley recorded her hit song "No Prince Charming" (debuting on iTunes at #2 "Best New Country Music") and as Ashley filmed the storyline video in Apache Junction, AZ. Plenty of family, friends, fans--and even some "furry extras" were on hand--Ashley likes to keep it Country, y'all!
Ashley recently was interviewed for the Tri-Valley Dispatch regarding her appearance at Country Thunder and has more television and radio on the horizon. She is also the upcoming subject of the independent music blog "We Like It So There!"--which will be featuring Ashley this month. Rolling!
The future is as bright as her smile for this Country sensation. Her management, Tony Saldano and Kiki Plesha of T&T Management and Booking Agency, have been working on formulating Ashley's tour to kick off later this year. Which could finally answer the most frequently asked question posed by the viewers of Ashley's Friday broadcasts--and that is…
