Thanks for the understanding most of you have had for the loss of my partner. The situation was unexpected and has not been easy, but I am better. I have been very busy since, with the aftermath and work, so I really haven't had the time or desire to post here. But I do check occasionally and will try to update requested links when I get a chance. No idea when or if I'll get to new posts, but you never know. He did support this blog, so maybe I'll get back to it. Thanks for your patience.

If you wish to download an album off of this blog and the link is dead, please request it either in the comments or the Chat Box and I will reupload it as soon as possible. :)

And don't forget to follow the Isle on Facebook and Twitter!

Aashna - Aashna (1995)

Aashna Patel was a reporter and host on Canada's kiddie channel YTV. Coasting on this bit of fame and a ready-made large young audience, she stepped into the pop music fray with this, her one and only self-titled pop album. It was produced by Canadian pop producer Rich Dodson, and follows closely to the style 'created' by Paula Abdul on her second and third albums: Pure pop, with funky, hip-hoppy and housey elements, and a touch of Indian music thrown in as a nod to her heritage. The lady was undeniably attractive, and her voice, while not super strong a la Abdul, was perfect for pop. Unfortunately her singing career was not hugely embraced by her hoped-for audience, with only minor radio hits in Canada with the singles "A-Ya" and "Not Asking For The World".  As a result, Aashna went back to hosting and reporting for entertainment shows in Canada and the US, and created her own multimedia company, Aazin LLC, with her friend Chirag Amin.
