Support the American Songbirds Europe Tour!!

American-Songbirds-Flyer 1
Next Spring I’ll be joining 3 other American Songbirds to tour in Europe in the Spring! We need the help of supporters to help us fly to Europe through a START NEXT CAMPAIGN!! – otherwise its trains, boats, and bikes to get us there!
This tour and performances will be very special: Each Songbird has her own strong and individual style: from ambient folk to rapping jazzy hip-hop to dingy cabaret.. and the works of yours truly.
Please check out our fundraising video and video of our work below- I’m speaking in German !! ha!

‘Diesel vs Lungs’ new album on JARO label in Germany/Europe!!


Ashia new CD 2
After much work, and time, I can finally announce that the new Ashia & the Bison Rouge album ‘Diesel vs Lungs’ is finished! I just received the physical CDs from the JARO Record Label & they are gorgeous!
That means I will start organizing all of the Kickstarter donor orders {finally!} and sending them out in August. I’m very excited to start to work with JARO Median because I was looking for a team to help with booking shows, concerts, and publicity. They also will help with Central/Eastern European countries, which is my soul’s calling to perform in and write about.
The album will be released independently in the US. Since, most of the Kickstarter donors are from the US, I wanted to honor staying independent on that side of the pond. I’ll be sending the digital download of the album soon to the Kickstarter donors, as well as organizing to send out the CD and packages once I have it in hand! We will celebrate the album release September 25th in Bremen, DE and November 14th in Portland, OR with more show dates to come!

Welcome to the New Website

This is now the new home of Ashia & the Bison Rouge as well as news and information from Ashia’s projects and explorations. Some pages are still fresh and in the making, such as the Store Page. We are still updating all the Shows, Concerts (past and upcoming), as well.
Enjoy the new colors, design by Susan Langenes and inspired by the new CD album artwork by Ania Grzesik.
