Hailing from San Francisco, California, 15-year-old Asher Belsky plays the guitar with a melodic yet explosive style. Asher began studying the guitar at age five and has yet to put it down. He has drawn from a range of influences, including the Allman Brothers, the Meters, Marcus King, and Tedeschi Trucks Band, to produce a sound that’s all his own. He writes, sings, and performs with his own band, Outer Sunset.
Asher is an inaugural member of the Gibson Generation Group (G3), Gibson Guitar’s select group of young guitar players from around the world, and is an endorsed Gibson artist. Asher is also an endorsing artist for Homestead Amps and Moody Leather.

Asher has also appeared as a featured artist at Surrealistic Summer Solstice Jam 3 in Golden Gate Park and at the Allman Family Revival at The Fillmore in San Francisco and The Beacon Theater in New York City. Asher has shared the stage with the Marcus King Band, the Allman Betts Band, Eric Krasno, the North Mississippi Allstars, Dan “Lebo” Lebowitz of ALO, George Porter Jr. of the Meters, MC Hammer, G.
