The songs have a sophisticated sound for adult ears, while keeping the interest of little ears too. This CD celebrates adults and children of all ages and will have the whole family hitting the PLAY button again and again.
For her solo debut, “MAMA ROCKS!” Ashley Gramins collaborated with a team of musicians who have played and recorded with Suzanne Vega, James Taylor, Carly Simon, Simon and Garfunkel, Bette Midler, Jewel, Shawn Colvin, Michael Stipe and Dar Williams. The sound is Hip and Fun!
Ashley was born into a family of musicians and classically trained. She has performed in musicals as well as dramatic theater, done commercial and voice-over work, and has fronted numerous bands. In New York, she has been a featured gospel soloist with the Metro Mass Choir performing at Town Hall and performed at the finals for FORTUNE Magazine’s "Corporate Battle of the Bands" at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The inspiration for “MAMA ROCKS!” came from the birth of her two children and the death of her brother/musician, Brad Kirn, all of which happened in a twenty-month period. The CD is a mixture of folk rock and pop with a hint of rhythm and blues and includes two of her brother's original tunes. Her stirring vocals and raw emotion will keep you humming long after the music stops.
