It all started when…
Award winning British born composer, songwriter, producer, pianist and educator, Alise Ashby began writing music before her feet could touch the pedals of the piano. Nicknamed the "melody master" by friends and fans, music is her passion and her purpose is serving others through its medium. It’s all about the joy!
Being exposed to London’s West End musicals and the classic sounds of Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Elton John, Queen, Sting, António Carlos Jobim, John Barry and Ennio Morricone to name a few, Alise’s strength lies in her ability and versatility to create music in a variety of genres. Whether it be a haunting melody for an orchestral/soundtrack; an uplifting jazz instrumental often with a blues or latin flair; a soothing ambient track that takes you deep within during meditation, relaxation and nurturing of the soul, or a song that leaves you humming the chorus, her overall arrangement and depth of emotion successfully communicates to the listener.
Up until now, it has been Alise’s instrumental material that has been commercially released. It is only now in 2019 that she is in the process of making her collection of songs available through live performance and recordings.
With a desire for bringing about positive change in our world, many of Alise’s songs speak to the need for us waking up, being aware, and taking the individual steps to be that change we all want to see in the world.
Her work has been featured in commercials, independent film, websites & corporate telecommunications, as well as live performances.
Alise is grateful to say that thanks to the Internet, Satellite Radio and one person connecting with another, her music is reaching across borders and into the hearts of millions.
Alise studied music at the Guildhall School of Music in London and privately with a Juilliard Professor in New York.
Alise has one grown daughter, Mariella, a creative entrepreneur, freelance artist, and founder and owner of Alleiram Studios. Alise lives in New England with her partner, Manuel Jose Muros, an author and spiritual teacher. www.manueljosemuros.com.
