Ashley Benjamin signs at Open House Records...
Open House Records can now confirm that 'Ashley Benjamin' has signed to the label with forthcoming collaboration release 'All This Love' with Hiast.
Ashley Benjamin - Vocalist / Singer / Songwriter - UK
A highly versatile House vocalist, Ashley has crossed many genres in his musical journey so far.
With a spirited, strong and soulful tone, Ashley’s releases have impacted on major labels such as Armada and the Hed Kandi imprint. Boasting an impressive vocal range, Ashley can hit Prince like highs to sultry Toni Braxton-esque lows.
Raised on a diet of funk, soul and pop, Ashley has an uncanny knack for a good hook.
Aside from being a vocalist, he is also a highly skilful songwriter, writing melody lines on his releases. With a career spanning the last decade, he is something of a hidden treasure in the dance world, contributing vocals to the progressive House of the Nightstylers’ euphoric Break of Day (Armada) through to the soulful stylings of Tom Jagger’s Gone, which received airplay on Kiss FM.
Based in the North-west, Ashley has made waves in the dance world, featuring on tracks by House legends K Klass, a cover of the Arnold Jarvis classic Take Some Time Out, and providing backing vocals to their remake of the classic Rock the House.
With releases on Discopolis, House sessions, Pink Fish Records and Onefold Digital, Ashley has seen his recent work land on two of Let There Be House’s huge compilations: Miami and Ibiza 2018 respectively.
Ashley continues to cross genres of dance music, whilst still retaining his unique vocal style, working alongside respected producers Reza Hemming and Ian Bland (Dream Frequency, Dancing Divaz) on forthcoming releases.
A dynamic live performer, aside from House vocals, Ashley delivers a slick set of Motown, funk and pop. He has performed at numerous venues around the UK, notably at London’s Pacha nightclub, The Coronet club, where Black-eyed Peas frontman Will-I-Am was headlining, as well as performing locally and also at Manchester’s Pride.
With more collaborations on the cards, Ashley is just warming up.
