Ashley is an audio engineer, vocalist, singer-songwriter, and production manager recently resettled in the Greater Philadelphia area. She’s had quite a few adventures in music and media since completing a B.M. in Sound Engineering Arts at William Paterson University in 2008. She spent four years as a Production Engineer for Westwood One Radio in New York City where she mixed pop culture news briefs from MTV, CMT, and VH1. During her time in NYC, Ashley became a small part of the local music scene, performing in the Young New Yorkers’ Chorus and as a singer-songwriter in open mics and with the Leave a Lasting Mark concert series.
In 2014, while working as a Production Manager for audiobooks at Common Mode, Inc. in New Jersey, Ashley started looking for a new creative outlet and discovered the strange and wonderful world of YouTube. She created AshleynessVlogs to share her journey as a creative professional and start working towards improving music education through media like youtube and podcasts.
The following year, she had a long-term dream come true when she started the band, All Night Drivers with friends from NJ and NYC. The band has written numerous songs, played shows in New York and New Jersey, and recently released their first EP in 2017.
