"Compelling stage presence, wit, charm, passion, a rich voice, smart lyrics, goofy, funny, sexy, and unafraid to give it go into uncharted territory — Naomi has stirred the heart blood and minds of slam audiences at the Green Mill for close to a decade. That's no small feat because the slam audience has been trained to talk back if what they hear any false notes. Naomi rocks the house every time."
— Marc Kelly Smith, originator of the Uptown
Poetry Slam at the Green Mill Jazz Club
in Chicago founder of the international
Poetry and Slam Movement
"Throughout her set, Ashley left the audience in fits of laughter with her self-deprecating humor, while songs such as Another Year Or So the title track from Ashley's 2007 album, sobers up the audience like a cup of coffee."
— David Byrne, Windy City Times
"Another Year Or So is an album that captivated me from beginning to end. And, frankly, for me that's a rare experience."
— Valére Samperman,
