Spurred on by the desire to finally make her songs public, Amy created her stage persona, AshA, having her first track amassing 160K streams in a very short time, and finding every song she sent to the BBC Introducing Artist program played on BBC radio UK.

Written in 2019 and uploaded to SoundCloud, back then ‘Lockdown’ was never an official release, but with the Covid-19 pandemic AshA was able to give the song a new spring, releasing it as the tenth in her official discography.

A sophisticated progression that develops and grows, AshA’s ‘Lockdown’ moves from a more introspective and enveloping atmosphere towards an evolved, edifying, and compelling opening. Growing verse after verse, she brings to us infectious hooks, a dragging groove, and haunting vocals.

A sophisticated progression that develops and grows, AshA’s ‘Lockdown’ moves from a more introspective and enveloping atmosphere towards an evolved, edifying, and compelling opening. Growing verse after verse, she brings to us infectious hooks, a dragging groove, and haunting vocals.

The dark pop aftertaste of AshA’s single resounds powerful and biting, through a rich and fresh mix of dance and electronic with touches of R&B and rap.

Here, consecutively decisive calls and answers match with vibrant crests and introspective valleys, making us run and slide with the delivery of the song. This is something that vibrates and unravels like disruptive injections of energy, giving us the strength and courage to break any straitjacket.

A real propellant that makes that delivery so permeating, elevated by AshA’s characteristic vocal touch, by the richness, and by the quality of the entire production.

“The song was written around the breakdown of a long-term relationship and several past heartbreaks and how I got over them by locking myself down and focusing on been happy with myself and working on me.” So AshA speaks about the origin and the meaning of ‘Lockdow’, as something far from recent world events, but rather much more intimate and personal, connected to her emotional sphere.

Described by the BBC as a prolific rapper and songwriter due to the high number of publications that she maintains, AshA proves to be an artist of undoubted talent, multifaceted inspiration, and to be kept in sight also for the high quality of her productions.

As for many artists, the lockdown put AshA’s gigs and plans on hold. But we know that this has left her plenty of time to write future songs. And you can bet, we can’t wait for more.
