Event Details

Asha Blaine

Asha Blaine’s first solo ROCK album titled “ASCENSION” was released June 2020. She is currently working on her 2nd untitled ROCK/METAL album, with 4 songs released as singles. You can find her newest songs on all streaming platforms with her music videos on YouTube.

Asha also runs a full time music performance business, performing every weekend throughout the Denver metro and venturing into Wyoming and Nebraska. She learned to play acoustic guitar during Covid, when bars would not hire full bands due to the pandemic. She wanted to continue playing music so becoming a SOLO performing artist was the only way to keep playing music LIVE, as bars would still allow solo acts. You can find her performance schedule on www.ashablaine.com, her facebook and instagram. Check out her YouTube channel for live performances.

In the fall of 2023, Asha campaigned a crowd fund for a music video for a song she wrote called “Run Away,” where she was able to raise the funds, from fans alone, to create an EPIC music video, directed by Denver’s favorite videographer, Kyle Lamar. This song has become a community favorite!

Asha discovered songwriting in 2019, after a very depressing personal time. She found that writing lyrics, and setting them to melodies, made a lot of sense to express herself, when otherwise, there was no other outlet for that. This became a source of freedom and expression for her, as well as an opportune time to come to know herself as a person, and as an artist. She likes to write about confronting bad internal voices, running away from trauma, and facing life with a fearless attitude.

Musicianship:

Asha’s first professional singing experience was 7 years ago, applying to sing lead female vocals for a favorite Disco band in Denver. Since then, she has explored singing lead for different cover/tribute bands in Denver, mainly focused on 70’s and 80’s rock bands. Her first album highlights a strong influence from the popular 80’s rock/metal music scene, while her in- progress 2nd album is focused on an early 2000’s rock/metal vocal influence.

Asha has also picked up learning the acoustic guitar since 2020 to enhance her song-writing ability and overall musicianship. She likes to keep herself staying active in the Denver music community. She is happy having the freedom to learn new songs, to see what the audience likes, and play the songs she writes to entertain and delight her fans. There is a lot of freedom and benefit in working as a solo musician for her.

Evening Experience:

Asha and her band are happy to be playing original music sharing the stage with “Guild of Ages,” one of Denver’s BELOVED rock bands. Asha will be debuting her single releases from her newest EP, along with NEW merchandise and physical copies of both albums.

Special Guest : “GUILD OF AGES”

Guild Of Ages roots extend all the way back to 1989. The band was named Caught in the Act and they played every battle of the bands, benefit show or backyard party they could. The band quickly rose among the ranks of the most popular bands on the Denver rock scene. After winning a number of Battle of the Bands competitions, Caught in the Act started gaining attention from agents, management companies and A&R. The early 1990’s brought about a significant change in the music scene away from Hard Rock, Metal and Melodic Rock. Bands like Nirvana and Pearl Jam became popular. Caught in the Act seemed to press on, despite the unpopularity of their music and it paid off. The band was noticed by former Axe/Blackfoot vocalist and guitarist Bobby Barth. Barth lived in Los Angeles and brought the band out for a recording session in the summer of 1992. The trip changed the landscape for the band significantly. After a drummer replacement, Caught in the Act sent a number of demo recordings to various record labels in Europe,Japan and the US. The melodic rock scene was still very much alive in Europe and Japan. The Scandinavian record label Empire Records, offered the band a recording and distribution deal in 1993 and Caught in the Act began recording ‘Act 1:Relapse of Reason’. Relapse of Reason was well received in both Europe and Japan. The boys began recording their follow up almost immediately after the release of their first effort, despite turmoil. Two member changes happened after the release of Relapse of Reason, but core members Antz Trujillo (guitar) and Danny Martinez (vocals) remained. Bassist Jim Lostetter and drummer Steve Stuntz joined in 1994, The band recorded and released Heat of Emotion and was subsequently signed to MTM Music in Europe and Toshiba EMI in Japan. The Heat of Emotion Cd received critical acclaim and served as a fantastic follow-up to their first release. The band was in demand and secured their first European tour as an opening act on the Pink Cream 69 – 1997 summer tour. Caught in the Act was sued shortly thereafter by a Scandinavian “Boy Band” with the same name. Despite using the acronym CITA, the band was issued a cease and desist order and forced to change the name after nearly a decade. Guild of Ages was reborn in 1998, toured Europe that year with Axe, released 3 more studio CD’s (One, Vox Dominatas, Citadel) and 1 Live CD(Live Over Germany). The band parted ways in 2002…

In August of 2014, GOA was asked to reunite and play a festival show in Nottingham, England. Firefest: The Final Fling! The band agreed to play the show. The band had a number of ‘warm up’ shows lined up to help get back into the groove known as Guild of Ages. It was evident that the band still had chemistry and sounded as if they had never split. During these warm up gigs, they decided to reunite Guild of Ages not only for Firefest, but for years to come. The band travelled to England knowing that they planned on putting the band back together, but they had no idea the fan base was so strong. Even after all those years.

The band finished recording 12 new tracks in December 2017. A chance inquiry from Khalil Turk of Escape Music LTD happened in early January 2018. Escape Music was interested in reissuing the CITA/Guild of Ages catalogue. Escape also secured a deal to release the long-awaited new Guild of Ages album RISE in spring 2018.
