Audrey Napoleon has become the ambassador of avant garde in electronic dance music, and the queen of Napoleon Nation inhabited by her devoted fans. Although a producer and performer by trait, she encompasses the life of a true artist, delving to many different mediums from mainstream advertisement, to makeup, to her love for all things fashion.
Born Ashley Restivo in Houston, Texas, with humble beginnings in the Los Angeles club scene, Audrey Napoleon's career began as the opening act for superstar DJs like James Zabiela, at the infamous Avalon Hollywood Nightclub. She began to make a splash in the industry with the 2012 release of her first EP Ornamental Egos. Along with the acclaimed tracks, Audrey put herself, and her unique, edgy beauty into a series of movie-esque music videos. The visually stunning short stories instantly set Audrey apart from the status and it was the beginning of something that had never been seen in the electronic music.
Audrey Napoleon maintained her dark approach in 2013, when she once again brought stunning visuals to her fans with her 2013 track, “Dope a la Mode.” The haunting song featured her as a singer-songwriter and the star of a jaw-dropping, bloodbath, S&M music video.
Although, she continues to work in the studio to produce new track and remixes, Audrey Napoleon, has several other notable projects, including being the face of Heineken’s “Dance More Drink Slow,” campaign. She produced the original music titled, ‘#MySunrise,’ exclusively for the commercial that is currently airing in 28 countries around the world. She, also, composed the music for Fredrik Bond's directorial debut, The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman, starring Shia LaBeouf and Evan Rachel Wood.
As Audrey Napoleon continues to expand her brand, her real love and passion remain being a performer. Her live acts are some of the most energetic and powerful of any DJ in the world, which she continues to showcase at shows around the country.
