Asia Wagner

Growing up in Poland, my musical taste formed in the early nineties with influences from bands like Everything but The Girl, Massive Attack, and Portishead, just to name a few. Playing piano did not stick, but attending frequent local events, and throwing rave parties in my dad’s warehouse did. While my thirst for new sounds greatly expanded my musical horizons, I have always been a beat lover at the core.

I curate music for Fresh Vibe and utilize my background in business to assist Portland Radio Project with revenue development.
