Salt Ashes Releases Stunning Live Performance of “Stains” Backed by Real Voices Choir
Singer-songwriter, Salt Ashes has released footage from her recent live show at The Clapham Grand in London on July 19th, 2023. The intimate performance included a stripped-back set of Salt Ashes hits like “If You Let Me Go”, “Lucy”, “Whatever You Want Me to Be”, and ended with Real Voices community choir joining her on-stage.
Salt Ashes closed out the set with a rendition of her latest single, “Stains” backed by Real Voices vocals and harmonies, pushing the song to epic new levels.
“Hearing 120 voices sing my song with such heart was emotional and magical,” states Salt Ashes. “Thank you Real Voices, I’ll never forget this.”
A slight change of pace from her recent dance and electro pop tracks, “Stains” sees Salt Ashes expertly balancing pop sensibility with an alternative edge, as she powerfully delivers the lyrics message of self-reflection and the need to push yourself forward from the pains of the past
“Stains is a very personal song that I wrote to myself. It’s a song about helping yourself overcome previous pain or trauma and actually asking and allowing yourself to heal, because only you can do that.” – Salt Ashes

“Stains” was produced and mixed by Louis Souyave, who collaborated with Salt Ashes on her 2021 sophomore album Killing My Mind, along with her most recent single, “Heart Attack”. The two artists’ chemistry in the studio is on full display, as Souyave weaves Salt Ashes vocals through swells of strings, synths and electronic percussion to an emotional and soulful peak over a wall of hard-hitting guitars.
