BIOGRAPHY
haron 'Lady RUCK' Ashley, was born, raised and, remains in PROVIDENCE, RI. A child of a musician her musical exposure from birth was eclectic. Artists like EWF, Johnson Brothers, Santana, Stevie Wonder, and the late, great Jimi Hendrix became the soundtrack of Sharon's early years. This exposure and the continued respect of her peers set her on a path to be the trend setter she has become. Early in her journey through life, Sharon realized one thing about the ever changing world around her, SHE was a fan of the DJs. Influenced by the talented individuals who held down all good times, in her hometown; gifted turntablists such as 'DJs': 'Lefty', 'SoCrazy', 'Buck', the late, great 'KurtyKUT' (R.I.P. KURTY), 'BigLig' 'Hazardous', also the likes of 'DirtyHarry', 'Juice'... 'JazzyJoyce', and 'LazyK'. The eclectic sounds that she had been surrounded by from birth put Sharon in a very unique position in her hometown, she naturally transitioned to a musically gifted DJ herself. In 1993, she was given an opportunity to cover for local radio personality of the time Ulysses, whom at the time would only extend 'RUCKUS' such an opportunity. Well that opportunity would not be squandered from that experience in the early years on college radio, Sharon became lovingly and respectfully dubbed as 'Ruckus'. Because, when Sharon hit the local scene that is exactly what she created. The days of guest hosting to cover were gone, 'Ruckus' made a home for herself on college radio in RI. She held down a 5 year tenure on 90.3 WRIU, at the University of RI as host of 'the 'B' side' with her male counterparts as guests, like DJs Buck, Lefty, and Half Pint. Her infectious spirit and strong foundation rooted in Providence made her a natural for community service. As a DJ, she has participated in events for such local charities as the Cancer Society's 'Relay for Life', and is currently and continually working with the youth of her community both as a professional and as a volunteer, through such organizations as 'The Jon Hope' center in RI. Her relationships within the community allowed her to grow into an organizer, promoter, and a host for such events as 'Future Shock', countless URI, House, and various other parties...such as events by nationally recognized personalities such as 'Dj Juice', and 'Rampage. 'Ruckus' became the first female dj of her hometown to put on the streets of Providence her original blends mixtape, and immediately earned the title of not just the first but the best female blend dj in her hometown streets of Providence, RI. This open more doors of opportunity for the lady of ruckus, and she became a staple in the clubs of Providence. Clubs such as Cabana, Del Rio, South street, Farenheight, Jewel, The Strand, Living Room,Jovans and 650 became her local residencies. In 1999, Sharon took a step out of her 'RUCKUS' personality for a break, but in 2006 stepped right back on the scene, with a name change of sort to 'Lady Ruck', with her long awaited return the mixtape scene with 'MY TIME TO SHINE', and quickly realized the love of her hometown. She has since become a local personality on MUSICFEEN.com and can be seen/ heard Wednesdays and 8-10pm or fridays for the I love the 90's OLD SCHOOL mix ! She is also a resident dj at fete music in olneyville. Newest mixtape called THE STORM with R&B blends of new and old school is available on datpiff.
