Here's an end of 2016 note from Ashleigh:
"Tonight I played my second to last show of 2016. I'm looking forward to taking a little time off of gigging to spend some quality time with my family and friends in Colorado. I love looking back on the past year and preparing for the next. Its such a promising time. 2016 has been such a fun and fulfilling year! Finishing up and releasing Looney Bird was a big highlight for me, but there were so many other great moments. I've loved making music with so many amazing people, bringing stories to life in song and playing and singing for so many of you!
We never know what the future holds, but I plan to jump into 2017 with hope and determination to make the best out of whatever the world throws at me. I hope you all have a warm and wonderful holiday season with the people you love!"

Both the recognition by the organization and the exposure received from their showcase in front of their peers and interested industry people can catapult a songwriter to wider appreciation.
