Allentown-raised Ashleigh Budlong is an upright/electric bassist residing in Philadelphia, PA. She began playing the double bass at 8, picked up the electric at 11, and has continued ever since. Her passion for the arts led her to attend Temple University for a B.M. in Music Education, which she will graduated with in May 2023. She is a well-rounded instrumentalist credited with having surrounded herself with/performing all genres of music ranging from classical to hard rock.
Ashleigh has a strong passion for strings education but that is not stopping her from wanting to make a name for herself in the world of musical theater. She has played in every production Temple Theaters has put on during her time in college with highlights being: Spring Awakening, Sweet Charity, Love Labor’s Lost, and Into the Woods. She looks forward to breaking out of the college theater shell and into the Philadelphia/New York scenes.
This past summer Ashleigh played bass for the Bucks County Playhouse's production of Tick Tick Boom and made her debut at 54 Below in NYC!
She is currently studying electric bass with Michelle Marie Osborne (Six! on Broadway) and upright bass with Anne Peterson.
