Being a musician in her own life, she told us about the parallels she experienced with her former band Hey Ocean, the film's plot, and many other fun tidbits. You can hear all of this and more in our exclusive chat on Literary Joe's Inner Child Podcast below.


 

The multi-talented Ashleigh Ball joins us to promote her new movie Rock Dog 2: Rock Around the Park, which releases this week, and sees her voice the character of Darma. The singer/songwriter talked to us a bit about her own music career and how her time with Hey Ocean and meeting with Gene Simmons for a record deal paralleled the plot of Rock Dog 2. We also talk about how the musician provides both the voices and the singing for her My Little Pony characters Apple Jack and Rainbow Dash and various other voice acting roles she has performed prior to this.

One year after the events of the original Rock Dog, Bodi and his band, True Blue, have become locally famous in the village of Snow Mountain—they even have devoted fans! But when a music mogul named Lang gives them the opportunity to tour with pop sensation Lil’ Foxy, Bodi and his friends learn that fame comes at a price, and ultimately discover that only by staying true to yourself can you unleash the power of rock ‘n’ roll!​

Rock Dog 2: Rock Around the Park hits Digital on the 11th and Blu-Ray on the 15th of this month, while Ashleigh Ball's first full-length solo album debuts on the 23rd of this month.
