FROM ASHLEY! >>>>

Today my mom and I are driving out to Wisconsin Dells (which is named America's water park capital of the world) and holy shit it's raining so hard. Since the weather is bad we're gonna do some shopping today so that'll be fun! We're not doing any water parks cause it's been really cold so far this spring so we're going to find other things to do. My mom and I have always wanted to do the jet boat rides that they have here where they take you on a tour of the Wisconsin river. Either way I can't wait to spend quality time with my mom, we have quite the adventures when we're together.

FIRST GUEST BLOG POST BY MY ONE AND ONLY! >>> ASHLEY!

Hi everyone, you may or may not know me but if you do; my name is Ashley! I currently live in Madison, Wisconsin and am going to school for graphic design. Right now I'm back at home visiting family and friends for my semester break. I am so happy to be home, 2nd semester totally kicked my ASS! It's been so weird living in a new town and knowing absolutely no one and having to become an adult...but in a way I really like it.

 

I really want to give Dev a shout out though, because being able to blog on your website is AMAZING and was really excited when I got your message. Thank you so much for everything, like you don't even know! I've been following you for at least 4 years now, and it's been so cool seeing you grow up. I am so proud of you, especially now that's you've gone indie & you're doing what feels right. You're so down to earth & such a sweetheart. I really admire you and value you not only as an artist, but also as a person, so thank you for being so awesome!

BBYZ!!!

I KNOWWww it's been a while since my last post! Jimmy, Emilia, and I recently moved & lets just say I definitely under estimated the amount of shit we had AND how difficult the moving process is lol. I also had been spending a lot of time with Alisa and Nanosaur putting together our mini BITTERSWEET JULY tour. If any of you kept up with my instagram I'm sure you could tell how much fun we had lol! Everyone that came out to the shows was so fun and our set was filled with a ton of energy and good vibes. 

Right now I'm currently spending time on some really cool projects including NEW MUSIC!!! I can't wait for all of you to hear some new stuff from me. I've been spending time with my friends trying to figure out exactly what kind of ideas I want to bring to this next phase of stories and sounds. Be on the look out for studio session updates and clips of some new new! OH & also be on the look out for us to bring the BITTERSWEET JULY mini tour to a place near you! I can't wait to celebrate and continue to get inspired by all of you!

 

I totally appreciate and fuck w all of you so much!

BBYZ! I seriously had the worst cold/flu the past week that seriously had my entire family out of commission. BUT I think we're back and feeling semi better lol. 

This past weekend I spent back home in Manteca for my sister Sierras bridal shower! I can't believe this lil beezy is getting married! I honestly couldn't be more happy for her and Brett though, They're a legendary couple. 

YESTERDAY I spent the day with NERVO and KREAYSHAWN shooting a video for a song we have together and even though I was sick as fuck, it was so much fun and I can't wait until it comes out. ONE BIG ROOM FULL OF TALENTED AND TOTALLY BAD BITCHES!

AHHHH!

 

Alisa and I have been in the process of setting up some really cool shows too keep up all of this awesome promotion for HONEYDIP & BITTERSWEETJULY and I just wanted to take a second to really thank all the RICAS & RICOS, all the BBYG00NZ, and every supporter that has had our back throughout this crazy journey. The past few years have been filled with so much happiness and craziness for me personally and professionally and I definitely would not have been able to pull through such an intense emotional roller coaster ride if it wasn't for all of the BBYZ. THANK YOU for really coming to every show and kicking it w me and for constantly showing love online. I am truly blessed to have my beautiful family and ALL of YOU who keep everything TRILL and BADASS as fuck. THANK YOU! Alisa and I appreciate everything from the bottom of our sassy, music loving hearts. 

 

I SEROUSLY CANT WAIT TO TOUR AND MEET UP WITH ALL OF YOU IN PERSON. ITS GOING TO BE FUCKING AWESOME.

SACRAMENTO

I had so much fun performing at the PARK in SAC. A bunch of mine and NANO's friends came through to celebrate being back up in NORTHERN CALI, complete with plenty of beers and whiskey. Performing honey dip and a few other new tracks off BITTERSWEETJULY was so tight for us & having all the homies there definitely made it awesome. SHOUT OUT TO SHORT-E at 1025 KSFM for not only being the coolest & sweetest guy out there, but for always having my back. Doing everything indie has been so emotional and crazy, but also very rewarding and seeing the support from everyone really makes Alisa and I so happy. 

 

I CANT WAIT FOR THIS BITTERSWEETJULY TOUR TO BE ROUTED AND COMPLETE. I'M SOO EXCITED TO DRINK, DANCE, EAT, AND KICK IT W ALL THE BBYG00NZ. #BITTERSWEETJULY

Having these long ass nails has really been affecting my typing, as per usual. The struggle is REAL.

BUT! NYC was awesome. Having the opportunity to be on VH1's Big Morning Buzz was really special to me and definitely an experience I'll never forget. Here are some pictures from some meetings/performances at Z100, post performance hang out at InStyle magazine with some of my favorite girls, and of course FINALLY signing the wall at MUSICCHOICE. 

Such a productive week! <3

 

JUST LANDED BACK IN CALI. DOING A SHOW HERE IN SACRAMENTO TOMORROW. (TECHNICALLY TONIGHT BECAUSE ITS 2:00AM) TIME FOR ME TO SLEEP.
