Asher began classical violin training at the tender age of 2 and had already performed with the Buffalo philharmonic by age 13.
Asher’s expertise in trans-genre improvisation has led him to a career as a soloist in demand, performing at venues such as Madison Square Garden, Hammerstein Hall, Lincoln Center, the Jacob Javitz Center and across four continents. Asher has also been featured on PBS, and has made headlines on CNN, WABC, and NBC and many other major news sources.
Asher is known for breakdancing across stages with his LED electric violin, in addition to performing as a DJ violinist, bringing his experience as a live performer and technical prowess as an audio editing and mixing guru to countless clubs and stages across the country.
"When I first met Asher, I had seen his resume but knew nothing about him personally. When he showed up for his audition, I was surprised to see this young man walk in. I was completely taken by surprise. With the experience he had I was expecting someone much older.Rosemary, my coordinator, had sent him "Desert Dance" to prepare for the audition. This piece features violin and guitar. I had always envisioned someone really tearing into the piece on violin as it has a fun rhythm that is just perfect for soloing. Apparently, Rosemary had told Asher nothing about what I was looking for in the performance and decided to let him just "go" with what he was feeling. Obviously a wise decision...he not only tore into it, he "shredded" it! He is an incredible talent, truly gifted and a pleasure to work with.
