The San Francisco based journalist showcases his musical side with a new Americana/Country-Rock single about the power of hope and the search for unity. Releasing Monday, August 19th.
SAN FRANCISCO – Aug. 16, 2019 — Americana/Country-Rock artist Dan Ashley is releasing “What Really Matters” as the first of what will be several tracks from a future album collection due out in 2020. The track, written by Dan Ashley and producer Bill Bentley, is a deeply personal song, forged by the more than three decades Ashley has worked as a leading American television journalist and the last decade as a singer and songwriter.
“I have been fortunate in my life and television career to have seen many places and met many people across the country and the world. In thirty-five years on the air reporting the events of our time, I’ve seen a lot- both good and bad. But in every instance, I have seen the power of kindness and caring toward those in need. This song is their story and mine”. –Dan Ashley
“What Really Matters” will be available on all digital platforms including Apple Music, iTunes, Spotify, Google Play and Amazon Music.
