Jasmine Ash is a singer/songwriter residing in Los Angeles, California. A transplant of Portland, Oregon, Jasmine is an avid hiker, yoga practitioner and animal lover. Her effortless charm, gossamer vocals and stellar songwriting skills have been winning over local audiences and inducing smiles all over the world. The honesty of Jasmine’s lyrics combined with her often quirky pop melodies have helped her to formulate an infectious sound that is uniquely her own.
A serendipitous meeting at a Los Angeles vegan restaurant between Jasmine and producer/writer Jacques Brautbar, resulted in a fast friendship. Their musical chemistry was solidified with “Starlight,” their first collaboration in 2012. The rough production and unfinished lyrics of “Starlight” caught immediate attention from her current management, Black Unicorn Music, and Sync Agency.
Jacques brought in long time friend and fellow Phantom Planet band mate Sam Farrar (Maroon 5, Sara Bareilles) to finish production on the song, garnering the group’s first TV placement on USA Network’s Royal Pains.
"Working with Jasmine is always an effortless experience. I hesitate even using the word 'work'… it is more like, play, really. I know we are going to have a really fun time, and have an awesome song at the end of the day. In Jasmine Ash, I have found a creative partner for life.” – Jacques Brautbar
The whimsical, enchanting love song, “Starlight” is currently being used in Ferrero Rocher’s 2012, 2013 and 2014 TV campaign airing in the UK, US and Ireland. Her full-length record Beneath The Noise (produced and co-written by Jacques Brautbar and Sam Farrar) came out on Valentine’s Day 2012. The record also featured songs like the retro, Motown influenced “Killer” (as heard on 90210 and Apple's tutorial for the iPad), the seductive, drum driven “Cut Up” (as heard on The Good Wife) and the alluring “Not All That I Am,” which closes out the album.
Jasmine also wears the hat of front woman and songwriter for the indie/rock band Oh Darling. Oh Darling’s music can be heard on numerous TV shows, in Films and ad campaigns, such as Disney’s PROM, KIA, Bloomingdales, Drop Dead Diva and many more. The band was also selected to be part of Evian’s “Live Young” campaign, supporting promotional efforts for the world's #1 brand of premium natural spring water throughout the L.A. area.
On top of her work with Oh Darling and her solo project, Jasmine is constantly creating and developing various projects. (babybats, Gold & The Invisible Girl, Sun Sun, and more).
I'm extremely fortunate to also be able to work with such talented people on a daily basis, including the wonderful members of my band in Oh Darling and Jacques Brautbar and Sam Farrar who produced and co-wrote my last record. This life is like a dream every day, because I am fortuitous enough to be able to do what I love. I've learned so much about my strengths and weaknesses over the past few years and every day just keeps getting better as I learn something new. - Jasmine Ash
