This show is all about whats new in the Portland music scene so we were extremely excited to have Ashley Xtina on this episode to debut her new single “Gone“. This evening’s PDX Spotlight playlist was full of Ashley’s influences, original music, and a rare recording of her father’s old band.
Ashley has a long list of talents including powerful vocals, catchy songwriting, music production, and music curation. As a music curator Ashley started Woman Crush Music which has been a monthly showcase based in Portland but has plans to go nationwide. These showcases provide a platform for local artists to not only share their music, but to network and connect with other women in the music business. During our broadcast Ashley spoke about the importance of music in her family and shared stories of hear early years in music. In the second hour of the show we listened to a handful of Ashley’s songs including “Frozen In Time” which was the first single of hers that I heard. The evening came to a close with us playing the new single “Gone” which was meet with high praise on the PRP Talk Board.

At my core, I am a musician, songwriter, producer, studio owner/engineer, and, most importantly, a lover of all things music. It is my goal to help connect listeners to local artists. I believe we should all be searching for the next thing that inspires us.
I am originally from Arizona, where over many years, I played in several different independent bands in the Phoenix and Tucson areas. I put in many, many hours of grassroots-style promotion in order to get my bands heard. I am excited to be a part of Portland Radio Project where I can provide an avenue to local Portland musicians to share their art.
