A week ago I sat down with the gifted Chicago artist Aasha Marie to learn the in’s and out’s of her artistry, background, and motivation for making music. It became clear through early listens to her new album, and a long backlog of texts that this singer, poet, emcee, and all around creative was ready to debut her new album, While You Were Sleeping.
The 14 track project is a picture perfect display of the essence of Aasha as a performer and human being. There are sultry, poetic musings, fluid rhyming, uplifting singing, and an overall message that Aasha can do it all on the music front. She’s not afraid to share her vulnerabilities, intimate details of her life, and experiences that may have once been negative, but turned into blessings.
I am honored to debut her new album.
