Ashley Heath and Her Heathens
with Emily Musolino In The Crown at The Carolina!
Ashley Heath and Her Heathens are a Americana/Rock band hailing from Asheville, NC forming in May 2016. Their sound has touches of thoughtful songwriting, sensual blues/soul vocals, and hard rock/jam rhythm section, to a little bit of country and twang. AH&HH started off the year with a release of their Sophomore album “Where Hope Never Dies” in April 2018, Winning the Merlefest Band Competition in April 2018 and playing a Cabin Stage slot between Jim Lauderdale and Sam Bush Band, and ending the year with a surprise $2,000 grant from the Lloyd Johnson Foundation that sponsors the Merlefest Band Competition Stage. “Where Hope Never Dies” was also voted on WNCW public radio as #50 out of the Top 100 Releases of 2018. The band is fronted by the songwriting, velvety-strong vocals, and rhythm guitar of Ashley Heath. The Heathens have been a mixture of many Asheville musicians over their two and a half years of being a band.
Heath has been voted as Mountain Xpress Readers Best of WNC #1 Songwriter, Acoustic/Folk, and Americana Country Artist of 2018 and has toured extensively as a solo act throughout the surrounding region, National Tours, and a European Tour through The Netherlands, Belgium, and France in the last four years as a full-time musician.
