With three critically acclaimed albums to her credit, this release is Ashley Wey’s first album of primarily original music. Hummingbird is a genre bending album melding Jazz, Pop, Drum ‘n’ Bass, and Hip Hop. Wey seamlessly blends her roots in acoustic music and the jazz tradition with electronic influences, pop writing, and a modern edge.
Hummingbird brings together material written over a 15 year period including songs that have been waiting for the right combination of performers to bring them to life. With Louis Rudner on bass and Nicholas Bracewell on drums, these songs will come to life on Hermann's stage Saturday July 24, 2021!
While Ashley continues to earn respect in the jazz world, her unique genre-bending sound is what sets her apart as she masterfully mixes jazz and pop, bringing virtuosity and unpredictability to songs that are concise and catchy
