Six years ago now, Dottie Ashley retired from her day job, and she and her husband, Eli, decided to start playing music. She had played a little guitar early on, but never seriously, so she took some lessons and formed an informal group with friends. Originally, that was going to be a rock band, so Dottie learned to play the drums also, but then her musical tastes gravitated to the music she grew up with in the 60’s and 70’s. Forming the Duo with her husband, and then their Trio, which includes Steve Jensen, she started playing out and singing covers of old Folk and Country Tunes, and then she started writing her own music. With over 70 Originals by Appaloosa, nearly 1/2 are recorded on 3 CDs, Dottie has really taken her poetry background to a new and wonderful level of complexity and interesting storytelling. True to her folk heroes of the old days, she often writes socially conscious songs as well as tunes with the pure country vibe of simple life and love in the West. Accessible and uncomplicated, she has a raw and authentic Americana voice.
