Asher Monroe

Asher Monroe Born in Arlington, Virginia in 1988, Asher began his professional career at seven years old. For his first big break, he landed the role of teacup Chip in the national tour of the Broadway production “Beauty and the Beast.” He continued booking shows to help support his family and move to New York City. There, he attended the Professional Performing Arts School from 2000 to 2002, and ultimately settled in Los Angeles. After starring in multiple roles on TV and film, including ”Parenthood” and MGM’s remake of “Fame”, Monroe signed on as the flagship artist to the new music label D Empire Entertainment in 2011.

When Monroe's first solo music video for “Like I Do” hit YouTube, it created a fan frenzy... racking up more than 1.6 million views, half of them within the first 24 hours alone. His next three releases "Hello Baby", “Every Night” and “Here With You”, passed the million view mark just days after each video debut. He quickly garnered international radio coverage as well as extensive features on Huffington Post, Forbes, Just Jared, MTV, CBS, and the December 2012 cover of Billboard Magazine. After embarking on a 20-city co-headlining tour across the US, Monroe was asked to perform at KIIS FM’s Wango Tango, Logo’s New Next Now Awards, and MTV’s OMA Awards amongst other nationally aired engagements.

In early 2013, Monroe headed back into the studio to co-write/produce his first official solo album. Album collaborators include multi-Grammy winning producers and recording artists Ryan Tedder, Chris Brown, Sean Kingston and Senior VP of A&R for Def Jam, Bu Thiam (A&R for Jay-Z and Kanye West's Watch The Throne and Rihanna's Talk That Talk).

Monroe’s latest music video “Hush Hush” was shot and directed in Bosnia by Academy Award winning director for best foreign film, Danis Tanovic. Co-written/produced by Monroe, the recent premiere of “Hush Hush” on MTV Buzzworthy/Hits propelled his title as one of MTV's Top 10 Artists to Watch and marks the beginning of his album release campaign/tour set for later this year.

Monroe's album is shaping up to be a stylistically varied collection of beat-driven songs with irresistible pop melodies, big choruses, and heartfelt lyrics that anyone who has ever loved and lost can relate to. Based in Los Angeles, Asher is currently splitting time between writing, recording, visiting radio stations, and prepping for his upcoming shows.
