Toronto based singer/songwriter Asha Pieper has delivered her single (and music video) Voices which features refreshing musical arrangements, a warmly welcomed jazz aesthetic, and a distinct vocal style which engages and charms the listener from the first note.
Voices sets the tone for women’s struggles in the modern era. With a hypnotic voice, plenty of instrumental surprises and a unique blend of elements which encapsulates the best elements of doo-wop, jazz, oldies, musical theater and music that came from entities such as Stax and Motown; Asha has carved a lane all her own.
Her sound is distinct, refreshing and elegant. Consider me a fan.
About the single, Asha states,
There was a period of time, that many of the relationships I held as secure and sacred, exploded. It took me a long time to realize, and to accept, that the world is heedy, and complex, and even if it doesn’t end with a happy ending, at least it’s over. And that can be something good.”
