(asia is pronounced ah-sya)

in asia's world there are no borders and no boundaries. not geographically, not musically. everything musical asia touches blurs and combines genres and influences. whether it's her singer/songwriter rock music that brings serious classical piano skills and masterful arrangements or an orchestral piece that draws on blues and metal. molding a sound that is not genre specific, all is fair game. all is a personal expression.

asia's latest and 5th album "songs without words" released in October '18. The release is a collection of instrumental versions of previously released songs. without words, they still speak for themselves, turning into moody, heartfelt, genre-bending compositions.
asia's singer/songwriter journey produced melancholy, introverted, emotional and earnest dark rock. asia released her debut "shards" in 2006, acclaimed single "big apple tree" in 2010 and hailed melancholy album "introverse" in 2011. The deeply personal journey chronicled in the EP "trauma and solace" was released in 2015.
