Starting as a young musician, this soul songstress has had unique experiences touring around the world to perform at music, sports, charity and fashion gatherings. Along the way Ashleigh has found herself part of a diverse family of musicians whom she has been proud to work with on various tours, festivals and collaboration projects.
Supporting and working with inspiring artists such as Ash Grunwald, Matt McHugh and Michael Franti – among others – Ashleigh has found that strong blend of influences to lay the foundation for a rare and powerful sound.
Somewhere between Stevie Nicks and Stevie Wonder, Ashleigh is constantly embracing new influences to evolve the sound of a young woman, and one with a message to deliver.
With a boundless sound that floats somewhere in the realm of folk, rockabilly and blues fusion, Ashleigh Mannix’s uncompromising talent and truthful approach deliver her three-part EP set compromising From the City, From the Mountains and From the Sea.
The first of the fondly named Trill EP, From the City, combines an ideal blend of folk, rock and blues with that hint of pop that gets the blood pumping.
Sure to be a household name in the immediate future, From the City’s single Isabelle is a swanky single fusing funky ukulele strumming with a tasty bit of soul.
