Where do we even get started with Johnny Ashby’s latest single? Aligning with Ashby’s uplifting lyrics, “Getting Started” is just the tipping point for this LA-based singer/songwriter.
“Getting Started” poetically narrates the need for progression and change in the world’s current state of events. Effusing a hopeful sense of self-reliance and determination, this track encourages the audience to dig deep and find inner strength especially in times of adversity.
The feel-good track has a constant build that ultimately reaches a climax of power and might. Like in life, the listener feels this strength challenged by torpid beats, the drone of hardship and misfortune. Ashby reveals, “’Getting Started’ is a song that asks for help. It’s a call for change. There’s been lots happening in the news over the last year and I felt like I needed to write a song about it.”
Johnny Ashby is a British singer/songwriter who found his love for music through his Dad’s mixtapes. As a teen he played guitar in various bands and after leaving college, stepped into the session world. Deciding to move to California with nothing but a suitcase full of clothes, a guitar he built himself and dreams of playing the legendary Troubadour, the songwriter dove in head-first and has not looked back since.
