Blaster Records Signs Jared Ashley

Jared AshleyBlaster Entertainment President Mike Dennison has announced the signing of artist and songwriter Jared Ashley to the Blaster Records roster.

“We’re long-time believers in Jared’s talents as an artist and songwriter,” said Dennison. “He has been a client of Blaster Music’s management division for quite some time and with the recent expansion of our Nashville label team, we wanted him to have the opportunity to keep his music with the people who know him best.”

In addition to an aggressive touring schedule that sees him perform 180+ shows per year, Ashley is a prolific songwriter, co-writing eleven of the fourteen tracks on his 2011 self-released debut album. At least five of those songs are being retooled for inclusion Ashley’s Blaster full-length debut, along with a selection of newer songs he’s been writing.

Ashley will begin a national radio tour the first week of February in support of his debut single, “Last Train To Memphis,” with the track shipping to radio in the spring. Ashley’s as-yet-untitled album is tentatively scheduled for fall release through Blaster Records’ partnership with Warner Music Nashville.

“Blaster Records has grown so much in the last year and I’m thrilled to be able to keep my records in the family,” said Ashley. “These guys know me, believe in me and are passionate about the music that I’m making.  I can’t wait to get out there and start making friends at country radio!”

Ashley, who joins a Blaster Records roster that includes Hank Williams, Jr., Aaron Lewis, and Brother Trouble amongst others, is sponsored by Epiphone, Eminience and GHS Strings.
