18 year old Asti-Loren’s sound familiarises itself with pop giants like Ellie Goulding, Lorde and Lana del Rey. She draws influences from iconic bands such as Fleetwood Mac and The Zombies and intertwines this with a sense of darkness and depth through atmospheric layers and ambience.
Asti’s 9 track debut album which is written, produced and sung by her will be self-released later this year alongside a plethora of covers due.

Throughout her time in London from when she was 14-17 she regularly busked, and had many local gigs, and also was invited to perform at 'Westfield White City's' Ice skating rink, which previously had hosted artists such as Justin Bieber, Foxes and Taylor Swift.
