ALBUM TITLE: STEP BACK “EP”
Asher Knight is a twenty-one-year-old singer-songwriter from Bradford, UK.
Asher discovered his zeal for music and singing aged 15 and was shy to pursue a career in the music industry after suffering from low self-esteem as a child and bad bullying at school.
At 16, someone introduced Asher to celebrity vocal coach CeCe Sammy, who managed to boost his self-confidence and develop his craft of singing and performing in front of crowds.
Asher went to London in 2016 to focus on his music.
He has honed his craft in the capital and has built a remarkable catalog of songs, having worked with writing greats including Cutfather, Mark Owen, Jon Maguire, Olly Murs, James Blunt and more, and producers including Red Triangle, AC Burrell and more.
Asher has seen great success over the last few years. In 2018, he dropped his debut single Hurricanes and Tornadoes, which was followed up by pop-infused tracks WHY and Broken.
He performed these songs to sold-out crowds across the UK whilst on tour supporting Steps and All Saints, and during his sets at Fusion Festival and Brighton Pride.
Asher kicked off 2019 by dropping his single Save Me from Myself, a fascinating yet memorable, emotional track, which relates back to the struggles he went through growing up.
He performed this track, and previous releases, as Boyzone’s main support act on their ‘Thank You & Good Night’ farewell tour. This run of shows saw Asher perform at arenas across the UK and Ireland, setting him up on a great pedestal for the future.
In April 2019, there was an announcement that Asher would be the support act for The Vamps, as part of vocal collective The Power of Muzik. To coincide with the tour, Asher announced plans to release his debut EP, entitled Step Back. The title track, written by Take That’s Mark Owen and produced by Red Triangle Productions, talks about insecurity, and how it is important to step back and appreciate what you have in your life. The full EP comes out on 17 May 2019.
Asher Knight has built a strong online fan base following his busy release and touring schedule.
He has over two hundred and forty thousand streams on Spotify alone, and he has an online following of over twenty thousand people.
