My name is Ashley Thomas, I am a wife and mother of two young children, I have a son and a daughter who both keep me intensely busy! I am from East Central Indiana, my hometown was expanded by my grandparents’ generation when the coal mines shut down through the Appalachians and people had to migrate North for work. We all have strong ties to Southern roots and heritage and that cultural variance absolutely reflects in my music. My husband is a musician also, we met at the music venue in my hometown of Muncie Indiana, but he is from Bryn Athyn, Pennsylvania. I have been living out here on the East Coast for Nearly 8 years, which is wildly different from my very rural point of origin, but it’s been a very cool change of pace.
