Whatever Ashlee Keating is going through, she knows there will be music to lift her spirits. “Music is my life! Period! It always speaks to my soul, no matter what I’m feeling in that moment,” she gushes. “It’s also very healing. Music is therapeutic, that’s why I love songwriting. to make people feel something.” Her songs help her taste every drop of the zest for life. “We only live once, right?! I would like to listen to music that makes me feel good and that is positive, so I love to write and create songs that make people feel that way! I always try to stay positive no matter the circumstances. Life is such a beauty and gift, it’s important to have music that conveys that.” Ashlee hopes her music will appeal to fans no matter what they’re going through.”I just want them to FEEL! No matter the emotion they’re going through, I want them to connect with it and be inspired by it. Of course, I want them to feel happy most of the time.” like they want to dance, be confident and be a bad bitch If it’s more of an emotional song, to tap into their emotions and feel free to cry or connect, knowing they’re not alone in what they go through. I want them to connect in every way possible. Music is about feeling!”
Her latest single, ‘Saucy’, is about celebrating yourself. “’Saucy’ is a nice pop/urban record. It was produced by Tommy ‘B Hits’ Brown and his team at Champagne Therapy Music Group. I co-wrote the song. I came up with the concept/story behind it around my birthday party. It was during the pandemic and, as you know, we were locked inside a lot. It was at the time when we could go out for dinner, and I decided to have a birthday dinner with my girls. Everyone started to arrive and were dressed to perfection, super beautiful, and we all started to complement each other and tell each other how ‘saucy’ we looked! It was such a positive, feel-good celebration; I was inspired to write ‘Saucy’ to give a piece of that moment to my fans! ‘Saucy’ to me is a term that radiates confidence and feels like yourself.” She sees it as a hymn to both women’s empowerment and the LGBTQ+ community. “I think ‘Saucy’ radiates positive, you feel good, be the best version of yourself energy. It’s empowerment in its own way. The song is meant to give you that feeling while listening to it.” The LGBTQ+ community has special meaning for Ashlee. “It means so much. I have relatives who are part of the LGBTQ+ community, so it’s close to my heart. I am a huge activist and advocate. It means self-expression, LOVE, being the most unique version of yourself and feeling the freedom to be that no matter what!”
At the moment she is working on her upcoming EP, but she is still not holding onto the project. “I don’t want to give too much away, but there will be a lot more of the energy I mentioned above and bits of me and my journey that are all connected. You’ll just have to wait…” Follow Ashlee on Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, and Facebook. Check out more of Ashlee’s music on Spotify, Apple Music and YouTube.
