Ashley St Pierre
Ashley fell in love with jazz in elementary school when she first heard a recording of Etta James singing At Last. She began listening to as much of it as she could, learning most of her technique and repertoire from recordings. She enjoyed memorizing Ella Fitzgerald's scat solos and trying to imitate the great tone quality she was hearing in various singers. After high school she followed her heart to Hamilton where she studied jazz voice and composition on a 2 year full scholarship at Mohawk College. She graduated from the 3 year program with honours. Some of her teachers included Mike Malone, Dave McMurdo, Nick Deutch, Jason Logue and Chris Hunt
