Customer Reviews for Before The Daylight's Shot CD
Man, if you like it bluesy and rocking, Ashley is your girl. The opener "Queen of Soul" is great, followed by a bluesy shuffle version of Stevie Wonder's "Higher Ground." "The Blessing" is a smoker, too. "Streams of Mercy" and "Twilight Hour" are two more good songs. Ashley sings with power and conviction; this CD deserved its grammy. Pick this one up quick and play it over and over again. In fact, I put this CD, Mike Farris' "Salvation in Lights," Jonny Lang's "Turn Around," Robert Randolph's "Unclassifed," Newworldson's "Salvation Station" in my CD player and hit random and just enjoy a bluesy groove all day long. Gospel music in this genre sounds great.

Review 2 for Before The Daylight's Shot CD
Date:September 20, 2007
If you like plain and honest rock, you will love this. Though this may not be Ashley's best cd ever - in my humble opinion - it is still very strong, emotional and personal. There are quite a few gems on it just the same.And then there is that voice! That inexplicable voice. Raw and tender at the same time. Is there any other female singer-songwriter with a more powerful, edgy instrument than hers? I think not. The things she can do. Just listen.Ashley, thanks for singing and making beautiful music after all these years. You still move me. Love you!
