Mixing genres like Jazz, R&B, and Neo-Soul, Ashley Groves' music both brings a bang and begs you to lean in. Writing since her early teens, her music ranges from sassy and self-confident to vulnerable and yearning. After the band's debut album Bad Idea in 2018, they were featured in The Journal: "'Bad Idea' is a big and bold debut that shows off Groves' emotive voice amid a backdrop of jazzy and soulful arrangements." Backed by amazing musicians and compared to Nae Palm of Hiatus Kaiyote in style and Adele in power, Ashley Groves is not a show you want to miss.
Genre-fluid jazz punks.
