About Me and Letting Go

For those of you that don't know, my name is Ashley Laschelle and I'm an independent artist in Chicago.  I graduated from Columbia College in 2007  with a B.A. in Vocal Jazz Performance. Since then, I have sung with numerous bands, artists, and productions. In 2011, I released my debut project, an 8 track EP called The Introduction.

Last year, I started working on my first full-length project, which is called Letting Go.  This project is the most transparent and vulnerable I've ever been in any artistic medium.  So far, I've released two singles and a video in support of it.  All have received good reviews and my current single, "This Feeling", has been in rotation on several underground and internet radio stations.  Despite management changes, numerous setbacks, and other obstacles, I'm happy to announce that the album is almost done.  However, there is still some work to do.  This is where you guys come in.

What I Need & What You Get

At the moment, we have several things left to pay for.  These include:

  • Post-production

  • Visuals

  • Promotion and distribution

With your help, this project can be a huge opportunity for myself and the others involved in this project.  I want this to happen, not just for me, but for those that have supported and believed in me.  And even for those that don't even know me.  I think this album has the ability to touch others, especially the teenage and young adult women.

In order to help this thing happen the way my team and I feel it should, we're seeking to raise $3500.  To try to ensure the success of the fundraiser, everyone who donates will receive a perk.  Could be a personalized thank you note, lifetime Ashley Laschelle merchandise, video cameos, or even be credited on the album!!!  But everyone will get something.


Now, I'd never ask anyone to donate without having heard me sing.  So here are links to my current single "This Feeling" and the video to the "Let Go Remix" feat. D.Son.  Feel free to play, comment, share, download, etc. until your heart's content!!!

Other Ways You Can Help

I understand that some people don't have the funds to donate.  Times are hard for some.  I also understand that some people want to donate more than just money.  So for those of you that fall into this category, here are some other ways you can help with this:

  • Promote Letting Go by using the hashtag on Twitter, Fb, and Instagram. #LettingGo

Thank you so much for checking me out.  Hope to see you all really soon!!!
