Asher Monroe Q&A

With over a million views of his official video for "Hello Baby," 23-year-old Asher Monroe has become a YouTube sensation. This singer/songwriter has taken the social media world by storm and now he's released a new lyric video called "Here With You." Check out Kidzworld's Q&A with Asher Monroe!

 

KW: When did you first realize that singing was your passion?

  • Asher: I first realized that singing could potentially be a real career with my first lucky break at the age of 7. I scored the role of chip in the first national Broadway tour of Disney's 'Beauty and the Beast'. I was SO excited ! From that point on, I never stopped singing!

KW: Was “Hello, Baby” your first song?

  • Asher: No, the first song that I wrote was actually a ballad called 'I Can Only Imagine'. I haven't released it yet. 'Hello Baby' was a fun, catchy uptempo that came about very organically.

KW: What inspired you to write “Hello, Baby”?

  • Asher: It came to me one day in the studio after working on a few different tracks. I was working with some young up-and-coming producers and they gave me a simple beat. I changed a lot of production elements but made sure to keep it simple and catchy. It was a fun process.
 

KW: Do you have an album in the works?

  • Asher: Yes. I'm currently writing and placing the songs I want to make this first album. I have over 20 songs that I'm narrowing down to make the album.

KW: What other musicians inspire you?

  • Asher: MJ, Elvis, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Outkast.

KW: What’s your favorite thing about being a musician?

  • Asher: Making music every day. I don't see it as a tiring job... I love it as my passion. It's invigorating to see a song grow from a small idea to a fully fleshed out sonic story. Beyond the creative process, I love the opportunities I get to connect with fans from all across the globe. I couldn't do any of it without them.

KW: If you weren’t singing, what other career would you pursue?

  • Asher: I went to college for money marketing, initially entertaining a career in business. Throughout the years, I've also had the privilege of acting in many different TV shows and movies. Music is at the center of all I do.

KW: Do you play any instruments?

  • Asher: I can play guitar, piano, and recently I've started playing drums.

KW: Do you have any tours coming up?

  • Asher: I'm planning one right now. No details just yet...

Now for some silly questions…

KW: Did you have any weird part-time jobs during or after high school?

  • Asher: Ha! I sold knives for a company called Cutco. That was fun. When I was really young, I would mow lawns in the summer to make some extra cash. I guess I had a thing for blades?

KW: If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

  • Asher: Hmmm... either a secret button to make all my songs go straight to #1, or flying. I imagine they're similar feelings.

KW: What was your favorite toy as a kid?

  • Asher: GI Joe!

KW: What song is playing on your iPod right now?

  • Asher: The semi-lame (but honest) answer is it's probably one of my songs. I listen to them a lot to write down notes, lyric ideas, production ideas, what needs work, etc... but, you might catch me jamming to the classics in the car sometimes!

KW: Who’s your celebrity crush?

  • Asher: Marilyn Monroe. I wish she was still around to show us all how it's done.

KW: I’m sure your female fans would like to know, what do you look for in a girl?

  • Asher: Confidence, fun personality, caring, and of course she has to be truly beautiful... which really means genuine.

KW: What’s your most embarrassing moment or habit?

  • Asher: In a lot of my videos, I lick my lips. I have no idea why. Ha!

KW: Where would you love to travel?

  • Asher: I LOVE to travel. Egypt, Hong Kong, Space?

Yes, of course Hannah Montana is really Miley Cyrus. Hannah Montana was originally created by Disney, and when they had auditions, Miley Cyrus auditioned and got the role of Hannah Montana/Miley Stewart.
