Ashley Poitevin is a huge music fan who admits to having zero musical ability. Where her talents lie are behind the scenes. Ash has worked in the industry since her teens when she began selling merch before becoming Light’s manager at just 19 years old.

She also manages Arkells! In 2018, she won the Canadian Music Week Manager of the Year award.

Ash was even with them when they went to the Pyeong Chang 2018 Olympics.
