Maybe It's Time
Ashley Gearing's debut CD on Squeeze Records has been three years in the making. It's entitled Maybe It's Time. This CD is filled with a lot of high energy tracks and heart warming balads. With the vocal dramatics of Shania Twain, the singing power of Martina McBride, and the youthful singing style of LeAnn Rimes, Ashley Gearing delivers up 11 very powerful tracks. With a modern driving beat, and old fashioned musical arrangements, this CD will appeal to fans of all ages. She has a youthful singing style with the vocal maturity of a woman, and she is only 15 years old. The CD starts off with the slow, but powerful track "I Found It In You." A song about finding all that you need in the one you love. "Out There Somewhere" is a song about knowing that the right one for you is out there somewhere as long as you keep looking. She also does a very nice, if not haunting cover of the song "Ode To Billy Joe" originally done in 1967 by Bobbie Gentry. "Sunday Paper" is a fun up tempo song about a woman who is sick of hearing all her former loves excuses and tells him to just "put it in the Sunday paper." This is an outstanding CD from one of tomorrows superstars.
