Born into a family of bluegrass musicians, Ashton Lee was destined to wind up with a guitar in his hands (and a number of other instruments for that matter). By the age of nine, he was playing big stages with big acts and he has continued to pursue a career under the lights ever since. Throughout his early years, Ashton gradually broadened his horizons to folk, country, and classic rock—and eventually jazz in order to attend Appalachian State University to earn a music degree. While in college, Ashton played frequently around the Southeast and beyond with his former band Hidden Still. His jazz education gave way to a love of blues, R&B, funk, and fusion that would heavily influence his musicianship from then on. Ashton moved to Nashville after school where he worked full time as a performing artist, sideman, and studio musician. During this period he recorded and released his first solo EP, Good Kind Of Trouble. Feeling that the Nashville market was not the right environment to build a career based on his true passions in music, Ashton relocated to Denver, Colorado. Ashton has spent recent years performing frequently throughout the Mountain West, developing a unique brand of country-adjacent music built on his broad influences. He is currently working on a new album which is slated for a 2021 release!
