Ashley (Mar-say) Marsé is a singer/songwriter, born and raised in Houston Texas. Ashley discovered her love for the stage at a young age. Her passion for music came from her mother and other members of her family as she was encouraged to sing in church and in school talent shows as a child. That passion eventually led to some great opportunities for Ashley Marsé such as being the lead singer for some of Houston’s premiere cover bands, acting and singing in musical theatre productions, and currently as a solo entertainer. Ashley has had the privilege of opening for legendary gospel songstress Shirley Caesar, winning “The Great Day Houston” talent show hosted by Debra Duncan, and working alongside some of the industry’s top music professionals. One of those professionals was Mathew Knowles. Ashley won a coveted spot to go through the rigorous bootcamp created by Mr. Knowles when auditioned for a national competition that was called “Project Popstar.” The bootcamp under Mathew Knowles guidance allowed Ashley to hone her skills in becoming a well-rounded entertainer. After completion of the bootcamp Ashley Marsé was invited to tour with Solange Knowles as one of her background singers as well as lending her vocals to Solange’s sophomore album.
Ashley took some time away from music to fulfill a personal goal of completing her education by receiving an MBA in Business Management but she is now returning to her first true love which is music.
Ashley recently released a Christmas Album titled “A Gift for You” and is now currently working on her next original project which is expected to be released this spring. Ashley continues to keep God first in her life and is a true believer that her voice is a gift that is a vessel for her to inspire others.
