Welcome to BuzzMusic, Ashton Rose. We love everything about your new single, "GIRLNEXTDOOR." What moment or story inspired the poised chaotic glory that hails from this track?
Appreciate the love, guys. Some songs just happen & this was one of those. Production up, and the lyrics just started flowing. Most definitely proud of this track. I might have had a couple of flashbacks about past flings to help the creative process, haha. Once I start with one lyric, the rest just follows.
Do your soundscapes always tend to focus on such upbeat and vibrant instrumentation? How would you classify your signature sound?
Most definitely not. I feel like an artist; I am very diverse. It's all about the feeling of what the production gives me. You can hear me on a sad beat talking about life or an upbeat production like "GIRLNEXTDOOR," just trying to have a good time. If I had to classify my sound, it's all about how I feel. Not one song of mine will sound the same.
What central theme do you hope your audience can reflect on when taking in "GIRLNEXTDOOR?"
Being young, dumb, and at the moment. I just want to have fun. Old flings, new flings, no matter what it is. Just something to relate to; We both know what we were waiting for.
Since each song you release focuses on a piece of yourself, what does this track say about you as an artist and your growth this far?
I feel that this record shows my whole sound and is put off. I feel like I have almost mastered my sound and who I am as an artist. I love to see it. Been making music since a little kid, im excited to see what's next for me.
What is your mission statement as an artist? What is the main message you want your audience to take away from the music you create?
The best part about making music is knowing that everyone feels something different with every lyric & beat. A song can touch someone in ways that won't happen to others. I think that's just cool as hell. I didn't have many family and friends there for me, but I was had music to fall back on. Haha, I know some sappy shit, but I just feel like I've been through so much, I can help others out.
