Asher Postman About His Morning Routine And More
It was about time that we sat down with the one and only Asher Postman to get you all acquainted. We talked about his day-to-day life as well as his favorite production tricks and writing process. Read on for the full interview.
A LITTLE BACKGROUND STORY
Asher Postman started making music from the basement of his parent’s farmhouse in Lake Odessa, Michigan. Between his daily chores of cutting the grass, feeding the chickens, and planting crops, he would find time to sneak away to his basement studio to focus on his true passion. Since he didn’t know anyone else who made music and the closest city was 40 miles away, he taught himself how to write and produce by listening to tracks on SoundCloud.
Industry buzz came quickly via his YouTube viral videos, notably 20 million views of Asher’s Walmart Yodeling Kid [Trap Remix] and 10 million views of his Dubai Was Lit [Trap Remix]. These videos, as well as Asher’s unique songwriting and production aesthetic, caught the eyes and ears of Armada Records, and the release of his tracks ‘Say’ and ‘Walk Away’ followed pretty soon after.
