Grammy winner and actress Ashanti has had five consecutive top-ten charting albums, and her new CD “Braveheart” is the latest in her string of successes.

Ashanti is a powerhouse in the studio.   “She would record just a few takes of each lead vocal, choose a full one and go with it.  No auto tune, no editing.  Her pitch was simply amazing”, says engineer Jeff Hodges.  “She could then stack backup vocals for days, knowing exactly what she wanted.  She worked fast and it was challenging!”

Ashanti spent her days on set of Army Wives and her evenings at Charleston Sound recording tracks for “Braveheart”.   Charleston Sounds Trevor Marron adds, “She’s extremely dedicated and hard working, and was a pleasure to record.”
