They’ll be playing Ed tunes like you’ve never heard them before, plus a new song in this debut performance
Tickets: $10 online at eventbrite or at the door.
// Ed Washington //
Edward Washington is an artist and producer raised in Anchorage. He earned a Bachelor of Arts in Music from UAA, studying voice. During his years in the Anchorage music community, he performed with several ensembles, won three Alaska Hip Hop & R&B Awards, and was involved in many different community organizations. These experiences earned him a legislative citation for his accomplishments and contributions to the local arts community. He recently started his own collective called The Sanctuary, which offers studio time and music lessons at an affordable rate. He hopes to one day work on chart-topping songs, but in the meantime, he’s looking to give back.
After 13 years away from Anchorage, Ashley is back home. While away, she played in 6 bands in Boise, Idaho, including, Juice! who performed their debut album, “Skating Calls” in support of bands like Durand Jones & the Indications, Crumb and Polyrhythmics. In the spring of 2020, Ashley taught herself guitar and brought her warm, soulful voice to her first solo sound. Her solo project is an honest and moving reflection on moving, loss and self-love. This will be Ashley’s first solo set and her first gig in her home country. Prior to this evening, Ashley’s originals were only shared in intimate settings.
@ Studio C is the home of Momentum Dance Collective and visual artist Enzina Marrari. A community-driven, artist-driven space, @Studio C provides a sustainable rehearsal and performance space, acts as a laboratory for partner artists to create together, and provides opportunities to foster the development of like-minded creatives in Anchorage.
@Studio C is proud to host a new program in 2022. The Artist-In-Residence (AIR) pilot program addresses the need in Anchorage for early and mid-career artists working in a variety of genres, to provide time and space to explore their creative process.
Through this six-month pilot program, six artists will each have one month of full studio access which includes gallery, performance and workspace and will be part of the @Studio C ecosystem which includes activities and ongoing events with studio artists. This pilot program is designed to be a process-based residency, allowing artists the freedom to research, create and explore without any expectations.
