PhD Student Austin Dean Ashford has released his debut single “U Kno” from his upcoming sophomore project “Durags N Bonnets”. Despite recently closing the national ‘FOMO TOUR’ only a month ago in Los Angeles, the Bay Area-based multi-hyphenate has picked up a strong cult following through a word-of-mouth buzz from his impressive live performances that match up to this explosive single.
