I am originally from Linden, Germany, and even have the name of my hometown tattooed across my chest. I now live close to the Fayetteville, NC area of the United States. Quite ironically, there’s actually a town called “Linden” not too far from me! I am an alternative electronic artist and vocalist. I mainly sing, but also rap and even scream. I record, engineer, write, mix, and master everything 100% by myself. I’m actually self-signed to my own record label Ashton Records, and right now Distrokid does our distribution when it comes to getting the music to streaming platforms and digital retailers. It has a very self-serving nature which helps independent artists such as myself. I tend to do a lot of work when it comes to the “business side” of things. My music is inspired by pain, and the stories of my suffering. My debut EP “The Sick EP” is also about having a good time, and the party songs have a deeper meaning. They’re about feeling happy and alive. When I wrote it, I was in denial about the problem I had at the time, and I actually don’t live my life like this anymore. I haven’t drank in 5 years. I had to get help. I tried to make the songs fun, but my pain naturally showed as well, which is good because it’s honest. To me, “partying” can be as simple as listening to energetic music, even if a person is completely alone and there is zero alcohol involved. I hope to help people by creating music which helps them feel happy and alive, cope, and even escape.
