More About Ashla

Raised in McCalla, AL, Ashla Taylor began singing in the church choir. With a Pentecostal evangelist father, she taught herself to play guitar and piano to lead music at the family's tent revivals.

Unbeknownst to her conservative parents, both of Taylor's grandmothers - one a poet and the other a rebel who burned up the honky-tonk circuit in the 1970s - were introducing her to artists like Dolly Parton, Patsy Cline, Aretha Franklin, The Eagles, Journey, Pat Benatar, Stevie Nicks and Shania Twain. By the time she was a teenager, she had secretly collected and studied a variety of pop, country and classic rock albums that had to be hidden from her disapproving parents. She wrote her first song when she put music to a poem her grandmother had written when she was born and continued writing songs for church, secretly chronicling her experiences growing up to share with her grandmother. After years of leading a double life which included sneaking out at night to local bars to play songs she had written, Taylor made the decision to expose her free-spirited music and break away from the restrictions of her upbringing to aim for Music City. She landed in Nashville full of wide-eyed ambition and a deep-rooted passion for honest lyrics.
