Asetha Power is Newfoundland's own Country Eastern singer/songwriter. With a mix of classic country and traditional sounds, and rich with references unique to Newfoundland, Asetha's extensive song collection is an authentic celebration of Atlantic heritage and legacy. As Asetha puts it, "I was reared on Old Country and Jesus in Newfoundland. I write about everyday life here and how my faith gets me through. That makes me a Country Eastern Singer. "
On each of her three full-length albums, Asetha's songs convey the precariousness of life, the grit and grace it takes to carry on, and the simple importance of taking care of ourselves and each other. Given her prolific songwriting ability, angelic voice and raw and honest performances, Asetha's devoted Facebook following consider her their "East Coast Dolly Parton".
Upon the 2008 release of her debut album "Child of Rhyme", eight of the eleven songs received considerable and sustained airplay on CBC St. John’s and VOCM. Unfortunately, due to longstanding, debilitating health challenges, the profound loss of her parents and unborn child, and the births of her two baby boys, it would be 12 years before Asetha could embrace her soul's calling once again.
In 2020, Asetha released "Simple Things, Guts and Dreams", an album for which she received a MusicNL nomination for Inspirational Artist of the Year. In 2022, she released "Country Eastern Christmas", a classic, celebratory collection of 8 original songs to capture the joy of a Newfoundland Christmas with her boys, while honoring the memories of her late parents.
Currently, Asetha is finalizing her fourth studio album, set for release in 2024. With over 45 new songs to choose from, Asetha promises her beloved fans that it will be "Country Eastern down to the bone!" as they eagerly await to hear what's next from the "Queen of Country Eastern".
