English remix and production duo the Wideboys have remixed up-and-coming pop singer Ashea’s new single, “Let You Go.” Co-produced by Ashea and Red Triangle (One Direction, The Saturdays, Cheryl Cole, Ashley Roberts) and penned by Ashea herself, the song is the eagerly anticipated follow-up to Ashea’s debut single “Whatcha Thinkin,” which was released earlier this year. “Let You Go,” out in the United States on January 25, 2015 via iTunes, has been given the remix treatment by Wideboys,TS7, Lynx, and Deepmilo.
Described as a cross between Rita Ora and Sia, Ashea was born in the seaside town of Hastings to a family of singers & performers. She was a dedicated musician from an early age and by 11 was rehearsing 6 days a week for competitions, exams and auditions. “I´ve always had music playing around me, I grew up in big Victorian house and part of it was converted into dance studios which my nan, mum and aunty owned… so pretty much every night of the week when I came home from school there would be dance, drama and singing classes going on downstairs which I would take part in and help out with the younger kids!“
To hone her craft, Ashea hooked up with acclaimed vocal couch with RAab Stevenson, who has worked with both Rihanna and Justin Timberlake. She was also given career advice by pop legend Kelly Rowland during her sessions. With her performance skills sharpened, Ashea returned to Europe to learn music production. “I started off producing on my laptop in the dining room and learning from YouTube tutorials. It was really tough but what kept me going was that every time I created a track, I was getting better, and every time I discovered a new and improved way of doing things which I just had to try out!”
