Girl Gang By E-Money
Bronx-borned Maxine Ashley is our 6th featured girl for the “Girl Gang” Interviews! This young little fox has the vocals of a big star! Her YouTube channel has already amassed 1,053,832+ views of her bedroom covers of R&B hits, but Maxine has traded her bedroom for the studios of New York, London and now Miami, where she’s busy honing her international sound–a carefree mix of urban pop, R&B, dance, and soul that would be equally at home on the streets of the Bronx, London, or Tokyo.
Her first outing is a guest vocal appearance on Italian DJ Alex Gaudino’s summer-smash, “I’m In Love” for Ministry Of Sound. Her tough yet vulnerable vocal atop Gaudino’s shimmering electronics has already wowed radio and club DJs Europe-wide, thus cementing Maxine’s first step on the road to international takeover. Today she is signed to Interscope/Star Trak through Pharrell Williams where she is currently recording her very own album, she was also recently featured on the cover of “Dazed & Confused” fashion magazine (Dec. 2011 issue)!! Get to know Maxine a little more!
