Roots and Rock Collide in Ashley Wineland’s Explosive Anthem Crank It Up

Ashley Wineland

Country rock firebrand Ashley Wineland blazed like a red-hot roots-reverent inferno in her latest single, Crank It Up.

The rhythmically compulsive tour de force is enough to strip you of every atom of inhibition from the moment you hit play. It is nothing short of a feat of alchemy that the swampy serpentine bluegrass guitars kept hold of their authenticity within the high-octane anthem which demands to be heard loud – Wineland didn’t even need to ask.

Produced by the award-winning songwriter and producer, Marti Frederiksen, who has become an integral part of the legacies of Carrie Underwood, Ozzy Osbourne, Buck Cherry, Aerosmith, Sheryl Crow, and Eminem for his songwriting and production credits, Crank It Up is an indomitable earworm which will ensure that Wineland’s career is equally revered as the aforementioned artists.

The prodigal daughter of Arizona has Country running through her veins; allowing everything she turns her undeniable talent to become an authentically exhilarant impact on the senses. Her voice deserves to be regarded as an elemental force of nature in its own right. If it wasn’t so pure with soul, it would be unholy.

If you get a chance to see her on tour, don’t even think twice about buying tickets.

Crank It Up was officially released on May 24h; stream the single on Spotify.

Deidre Thornell has released incredible single ‘Keep on Loving Me’

Deidre Thornell has dropped her latest single ‘Keep on Loving Me’ a truly mesmerising piece with a heartfelt lyrical approach.

Infusing a contemporary country sound with the occasional pop twist, throughout this piece it’s extremely powerful and the emotion pours through each word sung. Having that brittle texture to the voice as Deidre pours her heart and soul into the music she produces and you can hear that every second.

Having that trusted companion of the acoustic guitar guiding the song along and combining alongside the vocals. That soft strum, nothing too drastic, keeping it simple and really letting her voice cut through and show just how well she can hit those high notes and how incredible the vocal ranges are.

A fantastic piece by Deidre, one that is filled with passion and positivity and one that needs to be added to your playlist.
