Will Cabaniss is a composer and producer of genre-defying music, whose work draws on lush harmonic and textural palettes to tell intricately crafted narratives of worlds both real and imagined. Producing and writing under the name Asher Blank, his work combines electronic hip hop and jazz with contemporary vocal music in pursuit of new modes of storytelling.
Cabaniss began making music while growing up in New York City in the early 2010’s; at 15 he was posting beat tapes to Soundcloud. He eventually released a first foray into pop production and songwriting on his 2015 EP Loose Ends.

Cabaniss developed his sonic voice in 2017 and ‘18 while composing for Voices in Your Head, a competitive a cappella group at the University of Chicago, pulling inspiration from the work of Caroline Shaw and Kirk Franklin to craft an original take on small-group vocal music. In 2019, he joined the Grammy-winning staff of the LA vocal training program A Cappella Academy. 

Asher Blank, his solo electronic project, was born in 2022 after two years of experimentation and discovery amid the pandemic, introducing the voices of Cabaniss and his collaborators to a sonic and visual landscape rich with emotion and grounded by textured, thumping production.
He currently works from his home studio in Pound Ridge, NY.
