WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING...

"Ashley Wool is a natural-born talent."

        -Joshua Smotherman, Indie Music Discovery

"The musical theater major combines her classical training with plenty of pop sensibilities, creating a sound like no other in music and drawing fans from almost any genre."

        -Alan Ho, Musiqtone.com

"A powerful voice amid songs of various structures and moods...I suggest you have a listen to her vocal capabilities and witty, mature storytelling."

        -Carmine Pascuzzi, MediaSearch Australia

"Ashley Wool has a voice like a diva, the soul of a punk rocker... But no, you can't just put her in a box like that. There are elements of funk and heavy rock and roll in her music, too, coy hints of Ani DiFranco and Alanis Morrisette...plus maybe even an ironic echo going back to Captain Beefheart or Frank Zappa. And through it all, there is that voice, theater trained and yet hell-bent to rock out and have fun, like a more rocking Kelly Clarkson. Not that Ashley is interested in winning American Idol. Ultimately she's sounds like she's out there to be herself."

        -Bryan Wilkinson, The Lust Killers​

"A refreshing departure from the run-of-the-mill music of mainstream singers."

        -L. Anne Carrington, Indie Music Stop

THEATRE REVIEWS

EVITA

EVA PERÓN

CITY ISLAND THEATRE, NYC

“Playing the challenging title role is Ashley Wool. Vocally flawless, she brought a real hardnosed persona to the character, capturing Evita’s steely ambition and sensual nature. Ms. Wool has an undeniable presence and commanded the stage. The room fell silent when her rendition of ‘Don’t Cry for Me Argentina’ filled the auditorium at the start of the second act; a raw and breathtakingly emotional performance.”

        -Maria Beltre, OnStage New York

 

“Eva’s character moves from cold blooded and ambitious to physically frail over the course of the show, and Ashley Wool beautifully depicted her deterioration, making a powerful connection with the audience in her reprise of ‘Don’t Cry for Me Argentina.’ The chemistry between Ashley Wool’s Eva and Nic Anthony Calabro’s Juan Perón was a great asset to the production.”
