Ashe Singh has been making waves in the music industry for some time now, but it was her hit single ‘I’m With You’ that propelled her to stardom.
Now, the singer-turned-DJ is about to release her first solo album, which she describes as a “very special project”.
“I’m really excited to release my first solo record because it is a very special project.
It’s a really different and very special album, with a lot of emotions and a lot more soul,” Singh said.

A music journalist, Ashe has been a vocal critic of the state of Ireland’s music industry, with her recent comments on the industry being dominated by white men.
She also made headlines in January when she appeared on a talk show in Ireland, discussing her desire to start a label, with producer Sam Hagan of the band The Dukes of Hazzard, in her home country of Ireland.
She said the country’s music was dominated by “white men”.
“The Irish music industry is very much white male dominated, that’s where I’m coming from,” Sing said.
“I don’t think there is a single Irish artist that I know that I’m excited to see that’s going in the same direction that Sam and I are going in.”
It’s not that we’re going to have a white guy’s label, it’s that we don’t want to be seen as a white male industry.
“We want to do things differently, to do our own thing.”
Singing on stage as part of her live show, Singh is surrounded by friends and family.
She is currently preparing to release a new album which she hopes will be a “real record” rather than a “single”.
“We’re going into the recording studio and I’m going to start recording the new album and then it’s going into a studio where I have this really good producer who I have had a really good relationship with, and we’re working on it,” she said.
The first track from the album is called ‘The Song’ and is based around her relationship with her son, Sam, who is seven years old.
“He’s a very sweet little boy and I know I’m very protective of him, I’ve had to keep him very close.”
But I’m just happy that I have Sam as my main love, my son as my primary love, and then we’re able to do this project,” Singher said.
In a statement to the Irish Independent, Asher Singh, who has recently turned 40, said: “I have never had a single album released by my own label.
It is with great regret that I am now releasing my first album.
“The singer-dancer-song-producer is currently in Ireland and will be making a return to the US in March.
Her debut album, The Song, is scheduled for release in the United States on March 22.
