"Taylor Swift is one of my biggest inspirations when it comes to writing, being able to write songs that are both personal and relatable to everyone."

Asher Knight is an artist who came to our attention with his single ‘By The Way’, a melodic pop-driven track set to soundtrack our summer this year. We have since had the pleasure of hearing the EP which it was birthed from, his ‘Still Standing EP’, an 8-track emotive project detailing the twists and turns of love. Off the back of its release, Knight set on tour with fast-rising boy band Here At Last and took to some of the most iconic stages across the UK, performing to adoring fans.

With so much happening, we were keen to sit Asher down around his busy schedule and have a chat about all the exciting things he’s been up to…

Hey Asher, how’s things? What have you been up to recently?

I’m great thank you!! I’ve been busy filming music videos and am currently on tour with “Here at Last” which is going well.

We’re LOVING your EP ‘I’m Still Standing’ over here at FM…It’s a very powerful title, can you tell us a little bit about its origins?

I’m so glad you’re loving my latest EP. The title came from when I was listening to each of the songs, and it talks about the joys and pains of relationships but at the end of all the ups and downs, I’m ok and still standing.

What would you say is your favorite track on the project and why?

I think it has to be “Too Much to Ask For”, it’s a song that I think we can all relate to wanting to be loved.

If you could have one feature on the EP, what artist would it be and why?

Taylor Swift!! She is one of my biggest inspirations when it comes to writing, being able to write songs that are both personal and relatable to everyone.

You’re currently on tour with ‘Here At Last’, how does it feel to be playing your new tracks to a live audience?

Feels incredible to be back on stage and performing my latest songs. I have been looking forward to ages to perform live my newest songs and the reaction to the songs has been amazing.

What else is to come for Asher Knight this 2022?

Well, you going to have to wait and see. I’m really loving how this year is going so far with the new music and want to make the most of each show and each song released.
