Who is Kiya Ashton?
Kiya is an established singer/songwriter and performer in Guernsey's local music scene, sometimes venturing out to its neighbouring islands, like Sark, as well as the UK.
She takes plenty of influence from musicians like British folk artist Kate Rusby, pop rock legend Avril Lavigne, and 90s alt band Incubus and The Cranberries.
Since beginning her musical journey seriously in 2013, she's crafted a multi genre sound that compliments the emotional tales that she presents in her songs. Her tunes inspire deep thought and encompass you in a floating bubble of relaxation.
New music "Chirrup" out now! This luscious mini-album is brimming with natural imagery, a journey of me maturing, heartbreak, and, of course, a healthy dose of tension. The title track "Birdie" follows the story of a little baby blackbird hunted by a magpie as it sees the world from a new perspective for the first time.
"Chirrup" is available in CD and digital form in the 'Shop' tab! Here you can also grab a merch bundle, including a CD(s) and digital download, as well as some limited edition bits and bobs for fun!
Following on from an amazing launch gig, I'm ecstatic to see what happens next! You can watch a video of me performing at the launch here, courtesy of Guernsey Gigs. To keep up to date with my future events, see my 'Gigs & Events' page.
My 2018 release "Sweet Decadence" is still available to download and buy from the 'Shop' tab.
