Ashleigh Dallas is known for being the girl who always has a smile on her face, but also letting her fans see reality, and she’s celebrating the positives and negatives with her new single ‘Good & Bad Days’. Co-written with award-winning singer songwriter Matt Scullion, this song celebrates both the sunny side of life and the storms that come with it.
Dual Golden Guitar winner Ashleigh Dallas has not only paved a way respecting her third generation country music status, but also proving that she is building a solid foundation as an artist in her own right. Being the third generation of the Dallas country music family, it is little wonder why the dream of being a country music singer was at the top of the list for Tamworth born entertainer.
Ashleigh jokes that she felt like she started her apprenticeship in music when she was five years of age, then starting to release her own original music from age sixteen. The Dallas family hold a proud achievement of being the first family to win the prestigious Golden Guitar across three generations … Rex Dallas, Brett Dallas and now Ashleigh Dallas.
Cutting her teeth playing fiddle, mandolin, guitar and vocals in her family band shows, Dallas has also toured as a young adult with some of Australia’s highest achieving acts such as Kasey Chambers, Troy Cassar-Daley and Shane Nicholson to just name a few. Ashleigh also jumped on board Cruisin’ Country as a backing musician in 2012 and 2013 in the main theatre band playing for acts such as Graeme Connors, McAlister Kemp and Amber Lawrence.
With four studio albums under her belt, Ashleigh has embarked on her most successful creation – being a Mum to daughter Harriet. Balancing the act of being a parent and a touring musician is shaping Dallas to be more vulnerable with her songwriter and performing, and really wanting to connect to her audience in the most authentic way possible.
With two Golden Guitars to her name, Ashleigh wants to harness the energy and momentum in a positive way and continue expanding her experiences. These experiences include exciting roles as ambassador for the Australian Dolly Parton Imagination Library and ambassador for Rediscover Australia.
