Bio

Bouncing onto Melbourne’s Pop/RnB scene, Singer/Songwriter ‘Ash Kennedy’ releases her playful debut single ‘Point Of View’. Influenced by US & UK Jazz, RnB & Soul acts: Lianne La Havas, Tori Kelly, H.E.R, Ash blends the nostalgic warmth of jazz with the fresh flavours of modern Pop & RnB. Honesty is her policy, with raw lyrics & a present persona on social media, Ash has an undoubted connection with those that follow her, and has big things bound to come her way.

While this is her first official debut, Ash is highly respected and known in the Melbourne music scene for her effortless, soulful, masterful vocals and bright, bubbly energy. Performing alongside talented Melbournian acts such as JAYDEAN, Dandecat, ALLIPHA, Thando & Taylor Piggot, Ash also appeared on the cover of Beat Magazine during MMW with Sunshine and Disco Faith Choir as a feature vocalist.

Sure to be a warm, soulful night, Ash’s long awaited plans to hold a single launch late May 2020, were shot down due to Covid-19.
Catch her on Instagram & Facebook live performances, before she returns to the live music scene later in the year.

Expect to see ‘Ash Kennedy’ featured on two more tracks this year, including 2 tracks, Polar Opposite & ‘Closer‘ on Zac Robertson’s debut album, and a duet feature with the soulful Will Clift.

Buzzin' off the vibes here. Ash's commanding vocal and the carefree jazzy pop track is a magnetic combo.

Feels like I'm baking on a lazy, fuzzy Sunday at home! And far out that's a hard thing to make someone feel through song. I need more!

hearing this song feels like putting on a really warm perfectly baggy jumper that smells like roses and spiced rum. You've nailed this genre completely and I can't wait to hear more. PS. That end note/run at like 3.30 gave me chills
