Ashley Pearce

Creative Director, Guitar & Piano

Ashley Pearce is a Vancouver based musician and graduate from Selkirk College’s Contemporary Music and Technology Program, where she majored in performance and studied guitar. Her time at school in 2015 was noteworthy when she performed as a guitarist for the international pop star, Kiesza, during Selkirk College’s Gala. As well, she participated in a show with The Mighty Popo and his students from the Rwandan school, Ecole d’Art de Nyundo.

A dedicated and versatile musician, Ashley has invested her skills in a variety of bands, session work, shows, festivals, projects, and genres ranging from rock, folk, blues, pop, R&B, hard rock, heavy metal, funk, EDM, jazz, big band, and progressive rock. She’s thankful to have her guitar playing featured alongside the talents of Baard Kolstad and Derek Sherinian on tracks for the Canadian prog-rock band, Pareidolon (who were nominated for a Kootenay Music Award in 2017). Ash makes her day-to-day living by gigging, teaching music, running Apricot Music Studios, and by taking music contracts for companies like Capilano Suspension Bridge, Richmond County Farms, and Netflix. She’s happily at home on stage or in a recording studio, and has performed and done session work at several different venues and studios all over British Columbia.

Excited to share her experiences and help music students enter the industry, Ash is currently serving as chair of the Program Advisory Committee for Douglas College’s Music Technology Program.
