Welcome! I am Asha, also known as Asha Elijah and Asher Quinn. You will find 34 albums here, from my very latest collection of songs on Butterfly in Chains in 2022, going right back to my debut album Open Secret in 1987, which was predominantly instrumental. You can also listen to samples, read descriptions, buy CD's and downloads, watch YouTubes, see galleries and find out about concerts and forthcoming events in these pages! My songs, instrumental pieces and piano vignettes are spiritually themed, intimate and heart-centered in intent. I sometimes also re-interpret traditional songs and great love ballads by other troubadours of our times, like Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan, and combine this musical output with a private practice as a spiritual psychotherapist.
Please scroll down for the latest news about forthcoming albums, projects and so on.
My poems also have a page here, and some have been set to music on YouTube.

My new album "Butterfly in Chains” is now out!
Also “Mert Szerettél” released in September (sung in Hungarian!)
And then in the first half of 2023 three more albums will follow:
Spirit Songs ~ an album of duets with Eli (exalted!) (playlist so far)
The Healing Star ~ a piano-based instrumental album that brings a sense of calm, peace and play. Good for the pure soul, the inner child, the real child and animals of all ages! (playlist so far)

And several other new albums are also in production: Love is Blue (my 6th volume of cover albums); Life is Change (a new studio album of original compositions); Fireside Ballads (a second album with Eli) & Symphony Storms Within (a big production instrumental album).

15/11/20 ~ Support my music!!!
Three ways to donate if you'd like to support my music!!!
Any contributions you may ever feel inspired to offer, help enormously to manifest the songs and films you see here. The big costs I have are for the studio time, and the pressing of the discs, and the smaller costs are for travel, accommodation, artwork, website updates and maintenance, and insurances.
From start to finish a new album might cost about £5000 to get it from my heart to the market-place, but my main motives are to create music for love, art, truth and spirit, not to get rich! I have a basic infra-structure so my CD’s and downloads sell (here on my site, and through distribution, and sites like i-tunes, amazon, spotify and so on), but it only just about covers the costs or… more often... falls a little short.
This is the way of the artist! I am an amateur in the truest sense… from the words ‘ama te’… to do something for higher love, but my products are very professionally produced.
To provide for my family I earn income from being a spiritual psychotherapist. The music has to pay for itself! And yet somehow I’ve managed to create over 33 albums in 33 years, and to make over 333 films (lots of ‘3’s’!!) Occasionally benefactors help out, and this has been a great blessing. So if you are touched by my songs and feel so inspired, then all contributions to costs are gratefully received! And you will be loved not only by me, but also loved in heaven! You know it makes sense!
A one-off contribution (3 figures is a nice number!); a monthly donation; an unexpected tax-rebate or inheritance from an auntie you never knew you had… things like that! All are welcome!
