“Asher plays with a sense of soul that belies his age.” – Guitar Player Magazine
“Asher is a fabulous player, well beyond his years. He plays from the heart, has a great command over his instrument, and the best part is, he’s just getting started!” – Dan “Lebo” Lebowitz of ALO
Hailing from San Francisco, California, 18-year-old guitar phenom and singer-songwriter Asher Belsky is endorsed by Gibson Guitars and was an inaugural member of the Gibson Generation Group (G3), a select group of young guitar players from around the world. Asher is also an endorsed artist for Ernie Ball, Mono Creators, and Blue Microphones.
Asher leads a trio featuring fellow San Francisco high schooler Porter Bliquez (drums) and DownBeat Magazine award-winning bass player Matthew Jazwinski, a student at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. In September 2021, the band headlined the first post-COVID live show at the Sebastiani Theatre. They have played a number of other Bay Area venues including the Black Cat, Great American Music Hall, Terrapin Crossroads, and HopMonk Tavern Sonoma.
In fall 2021, Asher released an EP produced by Jorgen Carlsson of Gov’t Mule. The release features Jorgen on bass, Toss Panos on drums (Robben Ford) and Jeff Young on keys (Jackson Browne and Steely Dan), and includes Asher’s latest single, “Reason.”
