Born in North Carolina, Ashton Nicole Casey, better known by her artist name Ashnikko, wrote poetry as a child and fell in love with rap by the time she was 11. She also grew up listening to strong, talented women like M.I.A., Björk, Nicki Minaj and Avril Lavigne.
When Ashnikko was a teenager, her family relocated to Estonia and then Latvia, but she moved to London on her own at the age of 18 to embark on a career as a singer-songwriter. Ashnikko released her debut EP Sass Pancakes in 2017, which was followed by another, Unlikeable, in 2018.
She broke through in 2019 when her track Stupid with Yung Baby Tate went viral on social media, especially after being shared by Miley Cyrus. That was followed by her empowering anthem Boss B**ch with Doja from the Birds Of Prey: Harley Quinn superhero film soundtrack.
Known for blending genres like rap, alt rock, electro-pop and punk, Ashnikko is famed for her anime aesthetic, plus she’s stated that she is bisexual and a feminist. The Telegraph called her “one of the most provocative voices in pop right now, helping young women feel unbreakable and heartbreak seem like a minor setback.”
Ashnikko’s 2020 track Daisy broke into the top 25 singles chart in the UK and further broadened her following. When she appeared on the red carpet that year at the BRIT Awards, she made a big impression accompanied by two identically dressed bald men in white jumpsuits who held her extremely long blue pigtails.
In January 2021, Ashnikko released her debut mixtape DEMIDEVIL, which peaked at No.19 on the UK albums chart and spawned the hit Deal With It featuring Kelis. She confirmed a series of UK headline dates for December 2021 to support it.
