TWIST just caught up with Asher Monroe! Asher dished about what inspired his new hit "Here With You" and even spilled the deets on what his ideal girl would be like! Check out our exclusive convo, and a video of him performing below!
TWIST: Can you describe your music to our readers?
Asher Monroe:My music is very pop driven. I was inspired by a lot of different things. It really has a dance feel to it with a little bit of rock and R & B, so there's something for everyone!
TWIST:At what point did you realize that music was your thing?
Asher Monroe: When I was seven years old I was on the Broadway national tour for Beauty and the Beast. Once that was over and I did another Broadway musical, I realized that this was something for me. As I got older I kept singing and practicing, and so everything has gotten me to where I am today.
TWIST: If you could collaborate with any artist, who would it be?
Asher Monroe: Bruno Mars is great! I like his musical style the most.
TWIST: Which song of yours is your favorite and why?
Asher Monroe: "Here With You" is definitely one of my top favorites! It's the most recent single and I'm so excited about that song because it was so much fun to write.
TWIST: What was the inspiration behind "Here With You"?
Asher Monroe: I have a bunch of songs that are of a different vibe so I wanted to create a party song! I was just trying to think as big as possible and wanted to write a fun and catchy party anthem.
TWIST: Are you working on any new music right now?
Asher Monroe: Right now I'm still writing a lot. Every day it gets easier, so I'm definitely working on new music!
TWIST: Can you tell us what your ideal girl would be like?
Asher Monroe: Personality is important to me. I like someone I can talk to for hours and someone that makes me feel good inside! I have to be able to laugh with the person and be able to share my deepest darkest secrets with her. All those things are important in a relationship.
TWIST: Do you have any upcoming projects that our readers can look forward to?
Asher Monroe: Coming up on October 3rd is my free show at Webster Hall in New York City. I'm so excited because it's going to be up close and personal! The best way for fans to know what's upcoming is through my twitter page. I have a lot of performances coming up in October that they can find details about through my page.
TWIST: Thanks for chatting with us Asher!
Asher Monroe: Thank you!
