Aubrey Ashburn was created in 1976 close to Cleveland, OH. We were young with choirs, personal tone of voice lessons, and violin lessons, Ashburn was an all natural for Juilliard. In 1994, she guaranteed a scholarship towards the esteemed music college, but her demonstration tape was turned down. Crestfallen, Ashburn transferred to NORTH PARK and began schooling for her personal pilot’s permit. In 1996, she came back to music when her dad — a vocalist/songwriter himself — decided to fund a demo. Possibility encounters resulted in the participation of longtime industry-connected manufacturer Jerry Merrill, who helmed the periods for Ashburn’s debut, and had taken on A&R responsibilities. Sleeping Virtue made an appearance in the Gaston imprint in springtime 2003. A low-key mixture of AAA pop, cabaret, and blues designs, the record garnered comparisons towards the mature pop of performers like Sarah McLachlan.
