Bradford-born rising artist Asher Knight drops personal debut EP 'Still Standing', full of versatility and musical honesty.
Asher Knight was just sixteen when he discovered his passion for music, using the craft to gain self-confidence and grow as a performer. He’s come a long way since then, having worked with musical greats including Cutfather and Mark Owen, whilst accumulating just under 750,000 collective streams on single releases. The latest of Knight’s achievements sees the singer drop his debut EP, ‘Still Standing’.
‘Still Standing’ gives Knight’s fans eight pop-bangers to get their teeth into. He has explained how he hoped the EP would “show a glimpse” into his life, a goal which is reflected by the emotional honesty of the tracks. He continues: “Listening to this EP it follows the ups and downs of friendships and relationships that can be tough but something we all experience. I’m naming it ‘Still Standing’, because after all the difficult and happy times I’m still strong and moving forward”. In tracks such as “Burn” and “Alone”, the pulsing melodies are set against lyrics that outline topics such as toxic relationships and feelings of unworthiness – whilst the catchy “Amnesia” sees Knight proclaim, I wish I had amnesia/ So I could forget/ Just how bad, I need ya.
This year looks set to be a big one for Asher Knight. His singles have already amassed over 1.2million streams, and he’s supported boyband Here At Last on their Manchester O2 Academy and London O2 Academy Islington dates. We’re sure there’s much more to come.
