Ashley Levin, Jake Benjamin & Astyn Turr

January 28 7:00 pm PST

Second Stage

Doors Open: 6:30 pm


Ashley has been singing and dancing since she was three years old, and moved to Los Angeles from Miami, Florida, after spending two years in Nashville, for her music career. After attending the University of Miami’s Frost School of Music, she was a finalist on NBC’s The Voice Season 12. Having always been in choir, musicals, bands, funk groups, playing gigs in every genre, and writing in every style, she continues to mold and distinguish a “vibe” all her own. She is currently playing showcases and gigs in and around Los Angeles promoting her own music, while also working as a session and voice over singer for TV & movies.

Originally from Saddle River, NJ, indie-alternative artist Jake Benjamin’s overall sensibility is a “beyond pop” aesthetic that favors evocative feelings and engaging storylines over punchy pop songcraft. He is equally comfortable composing with a loop pedal and working songs out through leading large and small band ensembles. Jake was at a personal and artistic crossroads when he wrote his latest body of work, collectively known as Broken Stars. This artistically adventurous and boldly vulnerable opus was inspired by reading The Letters of Vincent van Gogh, a collection of correspondences from Van Gogh to his brother, Theo.

“I decided that the songs on this record should tie into themes of the psyche and the human spirit,” the NYC-based artist details. “Some of the songs were written from famous artists’ quotes, and others were written from my own experiences with anxiety, depression, relationships, and sexuality.” He continues: “Today, I’m open to showing all the aspects of my life, including my queerness.”

Astyn Turr is a singer-songwriter based in LA. New to the music scene, she is developing her sound to include her indie, R&B/Soul, jazz, gospel, and pop influences. Since graduating from Azusa Pacific University in 2019, she has worked singing with Andy Grammer, and arranging/singing with Hamilton’s original Aaron Burr, Leslie Odom Jr. Turr’s cover of Emily King’s “What Love Is” drew attention from Emily King herself, as well as Justin Timberlake and Sara Bareilles. Her original song “Maybe It’s Okay” was submitted for the 2019 Tiny Desk Contest and was featured among one of the “Entries That Impressed Us This Week” page on NPR. Her authentic and soulful sound is magnetic and powerfully draws her listeners in.
