FRESH: ‘Oxygen’ – Asher Knight

Asher Knight breathes “Oxygen”

Asher Knight is no stranger to us here at talkaboutpopmusic.com. We’ve been following him closely over the past year with each of his releases and watching him grow in stature and presence. Now he’s back with yet another pop fuelled bop called “Oxygen”. Asher’s artistic inspiration for the latest track came from an idea of love being like ‘oxygen’, something you need, something vital, whether it be love of family, friends, or a relationship.

“Working with great producers Red Triangle, we were able to create a song that is heartfelt and really conveys that unconditional love”, Asher tells us. “When I have gone through difficult times it is friends and family that have helped me, and now I am able to hopefully help others through my music”.  Asher has been supporting UK based tours with some of the country’s most well-known artists such as The Vamps, Boyzone, All Saints, Steps, Will Young and Roadtrip.

The now London based artist has brought to the stage his positive high energy performance to thousands across the country, building him a legion of loyal fans. And more tours with well-known artists are in the planning for 2021, once the world comes back from Covid-19. But until then Asher is releasing more covers and originals for his fan base to enjoy.

Asher continues to shine as a singer-songwriter, originally from Bradford, UK. He discovered his passion for music and singing aged 16, and was initially reluctant to pursue a career in the music industry after suffering from low self-esteem as a child after bad bullying at school.

Asher was introduced to vocal coach CeCe Sammy, who worked with him to improve his self-confidence and develop his craft of singing and performing in front of large audiences. Moving to London to focus full time on his music. He has honed his craft in the capital, and has created an impressive catalogue of songs, having worked with writing greats including Cuttfather (Kylie), Mark Owen (Take That), Jon Maguire, Olly Murs, James Blunt and more, as well as producers, Red Triangle, AC Burrell. Breathe some of Asher’s “Oxygen” and take in the rest of his back catalogue, if you haven’t already!

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
