About Lennon: Lennon Ashton is a young and incredibly talented songwriter, lyricist, and multi instrumentalist from Plainview, Long Island. From the moment he decided to learn the piano at six years old, and then the guitar at eight, he showed an instant and surprising ability to learn these instruments at an extremely rapid pace. It became second nature to him. With the gift of perfect pitch and prodigious abilities, he was destined to have music in his life, work with amazing people, and perform at iconic places. At only 12 and 13 years old, Lennon had the honor of being invited to perform at Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall. In 2013, along with his band, he became the youngest artist to be produced by, Grammy winning and iconic music producer, Jack Douglas. Jack Douglas has produced albums for John Lennon, Aerosmith, Cheap Trick, Zebra and many others.
