Episode 28 – Love Knows The Way (Asha Lightbearer)

Hello, and welcome to the 28th episode of my NaPodPoMo 2016 series. We are almost there, 2 more episodes after this one, and we’ll be done, but in the meantime, we still have great music to listen to.

Today, we’re going to listen to an artist who publish all of her work under a Creative Commons licence, her name is Asha Lightbearer, and the track is called, “Love Knows The Way”.

Here’s what you can find about Asha on her website : “With a voice as vibrant and bright as Linda Ronstadt and a musical style that’s been compared to Hootie and the Blowfish, Asha Lightbearer has been singing and writing heartfelt music since the age of 6. Her debut album, Move Ahead, highlighted her ability to create catchy, uplifting tunes, while her new songs like That’s How You Love Me and Welcome Home, Fiona have blown away audiences with their intensity and emotion. Asha’s performances will move you and keep you coming back for more!”

On her website, Asha says she loves writing music, and she’s happy to offer it to her fans, but writing music costs money, and her pockets are not deep enough to fund everything on her own, so if you like her music and want more of it, you might consider making a donation. The links for that are on her website, http://www.ashalightbearer.com/. What is on my site, at frenchguy.ch, are the links to her Facebook page and Twitter account, and of course, the link to vote for this track on CCHits.net

That’s it for episode 28, come back tomorrow for the penultimate episode of the series, until then, take care of yourselves, ciao ciao !
