It’s easy to fall under the spell of Ashley’s haunting voice. The Vancouver, B.C.-based songwriter forged her own identity as a songwriter with 2016’s eponymous self-titled debut. Her sophomore effort, Only the End, maintains the moody introspection that is ingrained in Pacific Northwest life, but now comes armed with a palpable hope complementing her signature melancholy.
“A gentle testament to resilience in the face of emotional hardship”– Pitchfork
“Dusty and mournful and Webber’s voice quivers as she reflects on the passage of time”
“A VU thrum underpins its multi-layered, darkly folky arrangement and rolling groove”
“… the kind of haunting loner folk that’ll likely hit fans of Leonard Cohen, Sibylle Baier or Angel Olsen, but Ashley’s got a bigger voice than these kinds of artists usually do”
