CAUTION: Ashlee Keating is your man's next "Bad Mistake"


Prune: Introduce yourself to our readers - 

Ashlee: Hey what’s up. I’m Ashlee Keating, I’m a South Jersey native pop recording artist. 

Prune: Talk to us about your new single, Bad Mistake.

Ashlee: I’m super excited about this single. It’s an empowering up-tempo pop song. It has a lot of strength and swag. I was home in South Jersey for Thanksgiving and was feeling inspired, so I got in the studio with [producer] Mr. Mig and started putting together Bad Mistake. We went in one day working on different beats and lyrics, went back the next and wrote the song. It’s all history from there. The lyrics tell the story of taking good from a bad situation and learning from your mistakes.

Prune: What are your aspirations for Bad Mistake?

Ashlee: It’s already doing so amazing, I am truly so grateful. I can’t thank my fans enough for the support thus far. The reaction is incredible, and I really hope I will have another Billboard charting single. I would also love to hear it play on radio. The goal is to have it do even better than Hurt Me So Good. 

Prune: You topped the Billboard Dance Club Charts with Hurt Me So Good. How did this single impact your career?

Ashlee: It changed a lot for me. It was a goal of mine to be on Billboard, and I was so humbled and grateful when I accomplished that. It put my music career on another level. It’s all really exciting, it opens up opportunities. The first time I heard it play in the club it was an overwhelming feeling, I shed a tear and it really hit me that this song was something big.

Prune: What inspires your music?

Ashlee: My life experiences. I always want it to be authentic to me. I always hope it resonates with my fans, but it’s always things happening in my life. A concept will come to me randomly, and I won’t always know what it’s going to turn into, but in the end, I’m always true to me. 

Prune: How did you first get into singing?

Ashlee: I’ve always known that I wanted to be a singer. I think I started singing the day I was born. I started singing professionally at the age of three on a TV show called Al Alberts Showcase and that is where it all began. I would sing a song once a week for the show, and from there on out I knew I wanted to be a performer. I’ve been on Broadway, CBS Star Search, and Radio Disney. That is where my pop background stems from, and I’ve been building my career since then.

Prune: In the past, you’ve opened for some of the biggest names in music, including Demi Lovato and Keke Palmer. What did these experiences teach you?

Ashlee: I’ll never forget any of these experiences. I could talk about them forever, they were truly epic. I had fans screaming and chasing me. I had my moment when I opened for Demi Lovato. I learned so much from these experiences, and it solidified for me that I too want to someday be an opening act.

Prune: On top of being a singer-dancer, you’re also an actress. Talk to us about this aspect of your career.

Ashlee: I love acting. I started very young on Broadway in The Sound of Music at age six years old. It’s a different vibe from music but I love to put myself into a character role of someone else but bring my own twist to it. 

Prune: If you could release a song with any artist, dead or alive, who would it be?

Ashlee: Right now I am obsessed with Cardi B. I absolutely love her. She is herself and she doesn’t care, and on top of it her songs are absolute fire. She has a badass vibe and I would love to collaborate with her one day. 

Prune: What is your favorite song to belt out in the car?

Ashlee: Right now, I would choose “i’m so tired…” by Lauv and Troye Sivan. It makes me feel some type of way and I can’t help but sing along.

Prune: Artist everyone should have on their radar?

Ashlee: I love the artist FLETCHER. She’s really popping off right now. I love her new song, "Undrunk", I think it’s great and she has a really cool vibe. 

Prune: Where can we follow you on socials?

Ashlee: The best way is always Instagram. You can get a feel for my life there - @ashleekeating. You can also follow my Twitter (same handle). My YouTube is my name, as well as my Spotify.
