About Ashelyn Summers

Ashelyn Summers

Her rich, nuanced vocals will capture you the moment you hear them, and perhaps there is no better introduction than "Willful Amnesia" - with her voice set poignantly alone against the sounds of storied instruments: the worn melancholy of a 1910 Story & Clark piano, the resonant tenor of a 100-year-old cello, and the sonorous baritone of a 200-year-old bass.
