With a voice that soars strong and full and hushes soft and sweet, Ashley Riley pulls you into her songs of life's hardships and hopes. Often compared to Stevie Nicks or Jewel, her sound is something you won't soon forget: roots-pop infused with finger-style guitar, and a subtle, dreamy hint of Mazzy Star. Her new album, "All The Pretty Things" came out February 18, 2014. Her songs have been featured on “The Midnight Special” radio show with Rich Warren, and “Night Sounds with Dave Leonatti." Illinois Entertainer puts it bluntly, "Make no mistake, Ashley Riley has an utterly gorgeous voice and a sound all her own." All The Pretty Things, a sophisticated collection of nine original songs that simply demand your attention, was recorded in Pogo Studio in Champaign, IL. Ashley felt comfortable and confident with the process, which encouraged more layers of sound and sparkling arrangements to showcase some of her most clever lyrics.
