About Artist

Ashaye (born Trevor Julian Ashaye) is a British singer. His single "Michael Jackson Melody" entered the UK Singles Chart on 15 October 1983. It was in the chart for three weeks, reaching a peak position of #45. The single was a medley of several Michael Jackson cover versions; "Don't Stop 'til You Get Enough", "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'", "Shake Your Body (Down to the Ground)", and "Blame It on the Boogie".[1]

Ashaye started his music career under the managerial guidance of Steve Walsh in a group called Earthline Connection. It was not long before Ashaye signed up with R&B Records to release a Michael Jackson medley, which reached the national charts. After his slight brush with fame but not quite fortune Ashaye teamed up with musicians/songwriters Robert Chandler, Nick Austin and Alex Palmer.

Ashaye's writing acumen came to eminence working with these musicians, and under the V4 Visions record label, other success followed, "What's This World Coming To", received rave reviews (Blues & Soul, Touch, Echoes) and the track entered the Kiss FM and Choice FM charts. This was followed by "Fantasy" and "Paradise", both licensed to NYC Strictly Rhythm label - a hit in the US charts.[citation needed] Another track from Ashaye was "Dreaming".

With the departure of V4 Visions, Ashaye moved on to form a band called Zone 22, with former member Nick Austin. The unique fusion of sounds created an underground EP, which was popular on the dance scene. A unique R&B sound was mixed with a garage/hip hop feel to make the music stand out from the other mainstream groups.
