Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I cannot believe another year has gone by. This time of year is bittersweet for me. I love Christmas but I love being happy and healthy even more. I am in a state of gratitude at this time. Last year during Christmas, I was hospitalized with pneumonia. I almost died. A few months later one of my dearest friends passed away from heart failure. She was only 44. I miss everything about her.
    It's been a year of reflection, changes and strength. With that being said, Christmas seems distant to me this year but the sentiment is the same. Christmas is about magic - believing in things not seen and appreciating things that are in plain sight. I'm still working on music and my album will be out March 2015. I'm very excited.
Wishing you all a wonderful holiday and a happy New Year.  -Rhett Ashley

I'm Still Here.

I'm still here.
I wrote a very personal entry a few months back but then decided to take it down. In it, I talked about the health issues I had experienced for several months before Christmas. I was hospitalized at the end of December and in recovery from respiratory problems for a couple of months afterwards. I won't go into the particulars of that original post but I am doing very well now. In fact, my voice is the strongest it has ever been.

I never considered myself a good singer. I have been my own worst critic for years. I am seeing some light at the end of the tunnel, however. In the last few months, I have let a number people hear tracks off my album "Retro" and the response has been very positive. Everyone has commented on how good I am singing now. I am still my own worst critic but after hearing various recordings - my voice is sounding strong, clear and better than average. I am truly thankful for that.

I am still working on "Retro" while taking breaks to record "B-Sides & D-Lites". Working on two albums at the same time is very time-consuming. I am at a good place right now with both projects. I do believe I will be releasing some tunes by Fall of 2014. I am very excited and thankful to have come this far despite the setbacks. With that being said - thanks to all of you that have been waiting (way too long) for this music to get released. It means so much to me that people are still interested in what I am doing. Thank you -Rhett Ashley

Wishing Everyone A Great Easter Weekend

I just wanted to wish everyone a great Easter weekend. It's not really one of my favorite holidays but I know it's very important to some. I look at it as a time of renewal and change. I am more excited about Spring, the weather warming up and everything coming to life again. Wishing you and yours a wonderful weekend. -Rhett Ashley
