FRESH: ‘Mercy’ – Ash

At the “Mercy” of Ash!

by Christopher Smith

“Mercy” is Ash’s latest single from his forthcoming debut album. A kicking bassline and thumping drum groove set the backdrop for this upbeat record about a dangerous love gone wrong. With production by Ryan Stockbridge (1500 or Nothing, HBO) and a soulful vocal performance by Ash, Mercy is a memorable and catchy tune.

Ashley Faatoalia, better known as Ash, is a talented and versatile vocalist, known for his performances in opera as well as pop and contemporary R&B. Hailing from Los Angeles, this charismatic singer and artist manages to combine stunning melodies with infectious grooves and beats to create a catchy, yet direct and edgy sound.

Ash’s recent release “Sugar Honey Iced Tea”, is a great example of his sonic vision, marking a really unique step forward for this artist, whose sound is becoming increasingly more personal and defined, one release at a time. This magnetic performer is quickly generating quite a powerful buzz around him: due to his distinctive approach to songwriting, As has often been compared to artists as diverse as Prince, Bruno Mars, The Weeknd, and Usher, to mention a few.
