Get to know Ashley Barstad

Hey! I'm Ash! I'm a third generation Colorado native and a graduate from Sand Creek High School. I picked up a First Act guitar at the age of 6 and haven't put guitar down since! Now, you can typically find me rocking an Ibanez GIO or my beloved Ibanez RG220 (seen in picture).

I believe that everything deserves at least one try. With that being said, I have tried just about every instrument. About two years ago, I began dabbling in bass and percussion, and a year ago I fell in love with pro audio. I've reciently started messing with various woodwind instruments, piano, and cello! 

I'm curently playing in an alternative metal band called "VaTiC" located here in the Springs, and I occasionally do fill-in gigs with bands around Colorado and sourrounding states.

I'm so stoked to be a member of the Music & Arts family! Music is my passion in life and it is absolutely amazing to be around people who share the same passion!
