Much more than an interpreter, Aspen's music and poetry is rooted in the acoustic string band sounds of her Appalachian mountain home, mixed with content compiled over years as a champion horse trainer and competitor living the rural lifestyle. Expect profound lyrics, emotional depth and solid storytelling, combined with mellow fingerpicking and lively flatpicking guitar, ukulele, and whatever else she might pull out of the case!
