Ashley Moyer aka Saywut?! Originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico, has been a fixture in the hip hop scene coast to coast performing for Federal and state educational, environmental, and humanitarian aid workshops through the use of non-traditional, alternative music outlets. Known for her unique talent of Beatboxing (producing sounds and beats through her mouth), Ashley is an award winning and at times undefeated female beat boxer. She toured Europe in 2011 with CocoRosie as their beatboxer and was a guest of La MaMa Theater in Manhattan, NY during their annual North American Human Beatbox Festival both years of 2010 & 2011. More recently she was featured in Tom Tom Magazines Museum Takeover of MoMa PS1 in Queens, NY as she beatboxed while traveling through the museum passing beats from drummer to the next in The Verbal History Of Female Drummers show. Ashley also taught incarcerated teen girls in 2013 how to produce, write and record their own music which was released through the non-profit New Mexico Jazz Workshop
I’ve been performing as a solo musician since 2003. I am a member of the Cuebro Brotherhood and I released two solo albums in 2009. The first was a compilation of live tracks and the second was a collaboration with TuMan Productions called…TuMan Presents: Zack Freeman. Wildly creative title…we know. This year Cuebro also licenced a track called “5 Days Left” which was featured in a Corona Beer commercial in late October.
One layer of beat box. One layer of grungy guitar sound. 3 layers of backup singing and one layer of bass line. All from one mouth. A sampler swings from my neck as I sing each part and loop the fragments together to create soundscapes that vary from funky breaks to sorrowful dirges about the hypocrisy of materialism. The process takes anywhere from 45 seconds (2006 America’s Got Talent) to 3 minutes. It is literally a live recording session with only one person at the helm. I usually perform solo, creating full songs out of thin air and lacing them with a pack of original lyrics. No song is ever sung the same so the audience always experiences a new performance.
