Universal Music Publishing Group’s 3x-Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Asiahn (pronounced – ahh-zee-yahn) “Asia” Bryant, finally comes from behind the scenes and releases her first EP entitled Love Train.
The last we heard from Asiahn, she was featured on Dr. Dre’s Grammy-nominated album Compton, on the track “Just Another Day” alongside Dre and The Game. She has also penned songs for J.Lo, Miley Cyrus, Akon, Pitbull, Drake, Lil Wayne, and so many more.
Asiahn penned the entire Love Train EP and she says it’s “an ode to the never ending journey we call love.”
In 2001, Asia ran into Craig A. King at a local restaurant – a talented producer who has worked with Ray Charles, Quincy Jones, Kanye West, Aaliyah, Will Smith, and more. Only moments into their encounter, Craig decided to take Asia under his wing. With the help of James “Choirboi” Bennett (personal A&R and best friend to Ludacris), they began to groom Asia in the ethics of songwriting, composition, and performing. After a few years, touring, opening for some of the biggest acts in the game including Ludacris, Kanye West, TI, Young Joc, Life Jennings and many more, the trio began to plateau and then halt all together.
At the end of 2011, Asia knew it was time to stand on her own two feet and take on the music industry solo. From years of writing for herself, Asia began to write songs for other artists. Writing with some of the biggest producers in the game including Quincy Jones and co-writing with the likes of Chris Brown, Sam Hook, Dj Mustard, Mike Will Made It, and Rock City, Asia has quickly made great buzz and name for herself.
