The singer and songwriter of folk music from Sydney, Australia known as Asher Wolfson has released his latest single, “Beautiful Girl.” The track has been proudly published on the Wolfling Records independent music label entirely without financial support from the corporate music power structure. Natural, sonorous and accessible to fans of any music genre, “Beautiful Girl” by Asher Wolfson is the latest example of the power of the folk tradition that endures around the world today.
Asked to cite a few artistic influences, Wolfson mentions not a one. But the chief importance of music in his life is something he's quick to point out. In fact, he takes it with him everywhere he goes.
“It's always been there,” he writes. “Some people complain about having a song stuck in their head – I always have one in there, it's just a matter of which song.”
While this phenomenon may not be singular to Wolfson, alone, it's at least more notable in his case for informing original tracks like “Beautiful Girl.” It's a plainly heartfelt song, one with warm, acoustic overtones and playful chord progressions which make a pleasant canvas upon which Asher Wolfson paints his soft vocal textures.
It's not all about sound, though. Music by Wolfson is poetic and deliberate, while retaining an intuitive quality that makes it seem somehow off the cuff.
He writes of the themes of “Beautiful Girl,” saying, “Today's society has a culture where a guy can't tell a girl she's beautiful without expecting something in return. This song is saying that by the time you hear the message of your being beautiful, I'll already be gone, so you can be sure that the only reason I'm telling you is because it's true.”
Asher Wolfson cut his musical teeth in what he calls “a church environment where singing was a weekly experience.” His (short) official bio describes him as a “gentle and generous, loud and friendly” young man. It concludes by stating that Wolfson is “the kind of guy who will strike up a conversation in an elevator with a complete stranger.”
“Beautiful Girl” by Asher Wolfson is available online worldwide.
