Alice Ashley – The Words behind the Music
My songs are lyrical and melodic conversations, and a true history of a series of events and experiences that positively affected my life so far...with a focus on the best emotions I could muster; fun and happiness.
In 1996 when “Never Giving Up” and “A Time Will Come” the title track were written, I visualised for the world togetherness, and the very experience that took place on the night of the election. It is so gratifying to see these songs solidified by the people.
"Never Giving Up" also describes my fighting spirit. A bluesy, grooving little toe tapping, dance number that manages to lift your spirits, and acknowledges the true hero’s.
All of my songs are written with others in mind; and “I Hear a Whisper” speaks to my own experiences of having a partner that was away from home a lot of the time; so I clearly understand how the military families must feel.
"We Can Overcome the Odds" smooth, sexy contemporary and jazzy, was initially about confrontation, making the unworkable work and written out of anger; an emotion I would prefer not having...but I loved making up afterwards.
I also love a good party, fun, laughter and catching up with my friends. So I refocused my anger with fun songs...dance grooves, like "I know the Difference", "Mama Said" and "If you want me to (ask me)".
“Something has changed me” was inspired by the fact that I’ve worked all my life. Workaholics everywhere will relate to the fact that It''s natural for us to just keep going, and sometimes not taking enough time for ourselves.
On a different note, I am adventurous at best, and took on a challenge that was a real stretch, but very exciting for me. I have been an extra in an Australian TV drama called “City Homicide”; and in several movies that were filmed in Australia. The Steven King movie “Nightmares and Dreamscapes”; “The Elephant Princess”; Nicolas Cage movies “Ghost Rider” and “Knowing”; and “The Pacific” directed by Steven Spielberg. What fun!
I met my good friend and mentor for many years, Gil Askey (former musical director for Motown) in Australia. Gil and I performed together on a number of occasions. Not only did he organise band members for my performances, but he also co-produced and played trumpet on "Never Giving Up" and "Forever and Always".
I love music... and "A Time Will Come" album covers a range of categories, age groups, some very personal and important issues; but mostly it''s a good listening album. You feel like dancing, or tapping your feet even when you think you don''t feel like it.
Like all things a bit of history may be omitted this time...but I must continue the saga on my next album!
