Ashlynne Vince is exploding on the Canadian Country Scene as an emerging Canadian Country artist dividing her time between Nashville, TN and her hometown of Welland, ON. After several years, as a young artist working in the music industry, things are falling nicely into place with Ashlynne’s third release, Take Cover, to Canadian Country Radio Release scheduled for Fall of 2017! Ashlynne’s first release, Stupid Love came out to rave reviews in Fall of 2016, followed up by her second single, No Boys Allowed in March 2017.
Her original written music first gained recognition from the 2011 Niagara Music Awards as Ashlynne Vince was awarded the winner for Rising Star of the Year at a young age of 13. In 2013 and 2014 Ash Vince made several trips to Nashville to record her debut self-written album Tidal Wave at the legendary CMT Studios. There she worked with studio engineer Rebekah Long (Cole Swindle, Stella Parton, Randy Houser) who went onto a position at The Tracking Room in the heart of Nashville’s Music Row. Rebekah invited Ashlynne (who was still in high-school at the time) to complete an internship in 2015 with her, and learn the engineering side of
music to further her knowledge in the music industry and as an artist.
In 2015, while in Canada, Ashlynne had the honour of opening at a Hamilton, ON show for Canadian Idol runner up Jaydee Bixby for a charity event for the Canadian National Autism Foundation. She also opened for runner up of Britain’s Got Talent Aliki at the Scotiabank Centre in Niagara Falls, ON to a sold out crowd. When in Nashville, Ashlynne performs on rotation at the famous Tootsies Wild Orchid Lounge, Rippy’s and Honky Tonk Central mentoring under some of the most entertaining and successful musicians in North America. She also makes occasional guest appearances on the General Jackson Riverboat Cruise, The Bluebird Cafe, Legends, The Stage, The Palace, and The George Jones Museum.
One of the highlights during the 2016 Festival Season in Ontario, was being chosen as a Spotlight Artist at the Trackside Music Festival joining the stage with Florida Georgia Line, Randy Houser, Brett Kissel, and Jess Moskaluke to name a few.
Ashlynne was honoured to be chosen by Brett Kissel, Canada’s Male Country Vocalist of 2016, to open for his Hamilton show on his Ice, Snow and 30 Below Tour. Ashlynne also had a very busy Festival season lined up for Summer of 2017.She was chosen to headline for the Billy Barker Days Festival in Quesnel BC. One highlight for Fall 2017 is being chosen as one of the spotlight artists for the Diamonds in the Rough Showcase during CCMA week in Saskatoon. Immediately following the CCMA week, Ashlynne will make Nashville her permanent home as she continues to strive for excellence in Country Music and surround herself with the best that the industry has to offer.
A proud member of the CCMA, CMAO, Grammys, Junos, Nashville Songwriters Association, SOCAN, ASCAP, and AFM – Ashlynne is deeply rooted in the Canadian Country scene and is committed to making the best version of Canadian Country Music that she can.
