Emerging dance-pop artist Aston has released her self-titled debut EP, which was produced by David Huff (David and the Giants). The first single “Circles” was released September 30, and Aston worked with the legendary choreographer Tina Landon (Prince, Britney Spears, Jay-Z, Janet Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and more) to bring the high-energy dance-floor beat to life. Bullied in school for her pansexuality and overt sexuality, Aston left her hometown of Houston, TX, to pursue her childhood dream of becoming a superstar. Those experiences are captured in the rhythms of her music, which express her freewheeling views of sexual liberation.
“I’m hoping that my story and my music will give people the courage to be true to themselves.” Aston says about her debut EP. “I want these songs to inspire people to be fearless!”
Songs like “Miss Me,” “Need U ASAP” and the tribal percussive “Pulse” ooze sexuality and urge people to free their libidos, taking away the shame of desire and instead, celebrating it. “Smells Like Love,” which starts as a piano ballad before segueing into a feverish ode to animal attraction, is a tribute to her love of Disney, a nod to The Lion King’s “Can You Feel The Love Tonight?” Aston is committed to speaking out against sexual injustice and is a vocal supporter of LGBTQ causes.
