Ashes Holland introduces his song 'Existential Crises'.

Name: Ashes Holland
Age: Four years.
Hometown: Originally from Tangiteroria, currently living in Auckland.
Sounds like: A musical entity with a confused identity.
Musical Guilty Pleasure: Baby Metal.
Formative Musical Experience: Seeds are constantly planted and you're never sure exactly how they'll grow.

I believe my formative musical experiences are the ones I am not conscious of; there may be a consistent theme that flows between these experiences, deeply rooting themselves in my thinking and subsequent creative processes over time. The impactive experiences I am conscious of are just illusions, they're superficial.
