Some of you might have heard of me, and some of you might have not heard of me. My name is Ashley Parker Angel. Always has been, but when I wasn't solo, I just went by Ashley Angel. I thought Ashley Parker Angel sounded better, so that's what I go by now. But enough about my name.
I pretty much have been around music my whole life. My mom taught me how to play the piano when I was five, and I've always loved to sing. I've had some not so glamorous jobs though before I could fulfill my dream, including a lifeguard. It was tough, because I also had some family problem's going on with my mother and father, but I got through it.
I graduated High School, and saw an ad in the paper to audition for a reality show called Making The Band. It interested me since I love to sing, so I went for it. I made the first audition, and we all went to Orlando. Things just kept looking up from there. Then finally, on the night of the final cut, I made the band along with five other guys and O-Town was formed. We did good for a while, had two CD's, headlining tours, a tour with Britney Spears, appearances on many TV shows and a few movies, among other things. But then things kind of went down from there.
We lost our record deal, and we talked about it for a while, and decided to go our separate ways, so about two and a half years ago, O-Town broke up. Since I was young, I thought it was the end of the world, but it really wasn't. At least at first it wasn't. I started making my own music and doing things on my own, but didn't really have any luck with it. So that brings us to now. I had some money problems, which you probably saw on my reality show There And Back. Yes, I had a reality show. The first season ended, but it was a pretty good time. I didn't know about having camera's around me all the time because it definitely wasn't fun sometimes when I was on Making The Band, but it was good. Helped me get back out there, and that's what I did.
I'm 24 now, going on 25 in August, and I have my own solo CD called Soundtrack To Your Life. I'm very, very blessed. Also, as some of you may already knew, I was engaged. To my ex fiance Tiffany. Yes, ex. We were just fighting constantly and we decided to just break it off for now. We're still good friend's though. We have to be, because of our son. His name is Lyric and he's going on one in August. He's my little boy, and he's everything to me. I love him with all of my heart.
So right now, I'm on tour with Ashlee Simpson. We've only been touring for a little while, but it's amazing to be back out there again. I love it to death and I love seeing all of the fans back out there again. It's just amazing. Lyric stays with Tiff of course while I'm on tour, but she is going to bring him out sometime so I can see him.
That's pretty much it. I'm single again and It's starting to grow on me. I'm not saying I'm not looking though. Well, pretty much, if the right girl comes along, then fine. But If not, ok. I'm happy with my life right now. So That's it for me right now. Don't hesitate to call me : ash feels alive.
