Media-maniac Derrick Ashong

The musician appears on Oprah Radio and WSJ Online.

Singer-songwriter Derrick Ashong ’97, subject of a Montage profile in Harvard Magazine, was recently featured in a short video for the Wall Street Journal's website. In it, Ashong revisits his old Brooklyn neighborhood of Prospect Heights, sips a chai latte withWSJ reporter Lee Hawkins, and walks the streets, ending at a rehearsal space where Soulfège, the band he heads with Jonathan Gramling ’98, convenes to practice. Ashong, a multifacted creator who also hosts The Derrick Ashong Experience on Oprah Radio, concludes the video with a few bars of singing and playing at the piano.
