If there is a balance between intimate, moody indie and the groove energy of jazz and R&B, Ashley Groves is finding it.
A classically trained musician with an affinity for songs of love lost, Ashley’s vocal versatility makes her sound equally at home with the soul singers of R&B and the homegrown folk of Americana. Together with her band of jazz-educated players, she has been playing monthly shows in the Twin Cities area to build recognition and her fan base. She just released her debut album, Bad Idea, in January 2018. Bad Ideashowcases the best and worst parts of being in love, from the exciting first sparks of attraction to the despair of love unrequited.
Ashley has been making music since she was twelve years old, evolving from her early interests in early 2000s pop to acoustic folk, and finally to the neo-soul, R&B-esque sound of Bad Idea. As a writer, she wants to incite listeners to recall memories of pain, loss, hope, and the protection of denial.
26 BATS! is composed of the members of music collective, Kriyative Emblems of a Blue Soul Renaissance. With their multi-genre influences including hip hop, jazz, alternative rock, and soul, 26 BATS! creates music with no intention of boundaries of a genre. By sneaking mantras in their lyrics and using themes of overcoming hate, this twin cities based band has full intentions of empowering and healing through music.
