Ashlee Simpson hadn’t released music in a decade, all but fully disappearing from public eye to raise her two children, before she and husband Evan Ross (son of icon Diana Ross) shared their first single together in the fall of 2018 — the breezy “I Do.”

But for the singer, who rose to pop prominence in 2004 thanks to her rock-tinged debut LP “Autobiography” and singles “Pieces of Me,” “Shadow” and “La La”; an early ‘aughts foil to older sister Jessica Simpson’s polished presentation and bubblegum love songs — it was like riding a bike.

That ease and familiarity is everywhere on the couple’s debut, duets EP “Ashlee + Evan” (released last October). The six-track collection — which the pair introduced through its E! reality series of the same name — was clearly written by lovers, for lovers. Ranging from cozy, guitar-driven, singer-songwriter tracks like “Safe Zone” and “Home” to the more R&B flavored, flirty “Paris” and “Tonic,” Simpson and Ross have found a way to reintroduce themselves — together.

Embarking on a month-long tour that recently kicked off in New York City, Ashlee + Evan perform at Lincoln Hall Saturday night.

“The fear has been getting back into it,” Simpson admits on a call with her husband from Los Angeles.

That fear was highlighted on the show, with Simpson vocal about her concerns regarding the public’s reception and perception, particularly after infamous (though widely overblown) stumbles like her 2004 “Saturday Night Live” performance and third album “Bittersweet World”’s less than stellar debut compared to previous albums.

“For me, at the end of the day, the only person who has to be proud of me is myself. I’ve had different moments in my career, I’m always my toughest critic — and now, being a mom is first. But I do love music, I’ve always loved making music, so this is a great time for me to do what I love and actually enjoy it. I think this project with my husband – it’s just been fun to do this together and explore different sounds and musical freedoms. Evan has definitely helped me with that – to let go and have fun and just make music again.”

Simpson and Ross married in 2014, and had been singing together since they first started dating. They agree they always wanted to record together, but something would always manage to distract.

“I got pregnant,” she laughs. “Evan was on a show or had started a movie. When he finished last season of “Star” (the Lee Daniels’ created Fox series), he came home and we were like ‘Ok let’s sit down and really do this.’ We really took the time to focus on what it would sound like, how we would work together, what the feel would be.”

That feel, according to Ross, was something classic — like the duets albums of the ‘60s and ‘70s: 1973’s “Diana & Marvin,” one of his favorites of his mother’s albums, and Sonny & Cher’s “Look at Us;” mixed with modern influences the couple initially bonded over such as Sade and Erykah Badu. Working with Earth, Wind & Fire’s Verdine White, the instruments and vocals were recorded live on analog tape to capture a warmer, richer sound.

“We had written a bunch of the songs and he really took over in an amazing way,” Ross says of White’s production input. “He brought us to a studio he loves and he’d be playing to the music — they’d be in the studio all night. They cut everything in a week’s time, while Earth, Wind & Fire was on tour. He’s been at rehearsal every day, he’s so supportive. It’s amazing. He’s become such an important part of this project and a great friend.”

The duo’s pending release turned out to be the driving force behind choosing to collaborate with E! to document the recording process for television. Acting as executive producers, Ross and Simpson didn’t shy away from including creative disagreements — but ultimately wanted the show to emphasize the message of love and positivity they were communicating musically by side-stepping the drama for inclusion of their families and children: daughter Jagger and Simpson’s son Bronx (from her first marriage to Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz).

“All that stuff’s real. We didn’t want it to feel like everything was always perfect, there were definitely struggles, but it was specific. We wanted it to be where we could release a song an episode (six songs for six episodes) – you know? Keep it short.” Ross says.

“It has to serve a purpose,” Simpson interjects. “We’re not gonna do a show that’s just there – there has to be a reason.”

There have been conversations about a possible second season, as the couple is working on “part two” of “Ashlee + Evan” the EP — which is set to include a song co-written with Ross’ famous mother.

“My mom had been excited about us doing this for a long time. Even before we got started, she’d be like ‘When are you guys doing an album? When?’ She knew from the beginning, when I would send her stuff of us singing together,” he explains. “She thought it was such a special idea – writing songs with the person you love and putting that in the world. Especially the way the world is right now.”

Ross says he leaned on both his mother and his wife for insights into the recording industry, as “Ashlee + Evan” marks his first foray into music professionally.

“She gives advice, not so much on the writing process, but she’s been helpful preparing for these performances coming up,” he continues, regarding his mother’s support. “I’ve been sending her footage from rehearsals and things, so she can see it right there and give us points on how to give your energy all the way to the back of the room. She’s such an amazing performer. But she’s always been really helpful with the actual business of the music industry as far as taking care of yourself and making sure you don’t get taken advantage of and things like that. In that sense, she’s helped a lot.”

While this venture has become a true “family project,” the couple knows the spotlight on this go-around will ultimately be on Simpson’s return.

“We’re both working on solo albums now and maybe they’ll sound different from what we made together, but I want to share this music with people who have been waiting to hear what I was gonna do or not,” she says. “Of course in the live set, I’ll do ‘Pieces,’ ‘Boyfriend,’ ‘L.O.V.E.’ and ‘La La.’ Going into rehearsal and revisiting those songs after this many years has been awesome. It’s been so fun.”

Ross agrees: “We’re learning new stuff about each other through getting on this tour. We work differently, but we work well together. I had never gotten to see Ashlee really perform, especially her older hits. And, I mean, just watching that and her performance of those songs is incredible.”

On “Home”, one of her first songs in a decade, veteran pop star Ashlee Simpson sings, “this little house that I made for myself, keeps me occupied…keeps me satisfied.”

It’s a far cry from the twenty-something vocalist who triumphantly cried, “got stains on my t-shirt and I’m the biggest flirt” on the title track of her debut album Autobiography nearly 15 years ago.

However, “Home” is much closer to another couplet from that disc, featured in the soaring pre-chorus to a little, international smash hit called “Pieces of Me.”

“It seems like I can finally rest my head on something real, I like the way that feels,” the tunestated.

That little house, that something real for Ashlee Simpson, 34, has been a loving marriage to actor and singer Evan Ross, two young children and a life out of the spotlight, at least until recently.

Simpson and Ross, the son of American music icon Diana Ross, put out a six-song EP this past October as the duo Ashlee + Evan. It’s the first new music from Simpson since she released her third album, Bittersweet World, in 2008 and the first since Ross dropped the single “How To Live Alone” in 2015.

The music on the Ashlee + Evan EP ranges from intimate, easy, breezy tunes like “Home” and “I Do,” to electrified, sultry club numbers like “Paris” and “Safe Zone.” There’s a lot of growth in these songs and a maturity to the sound, but still features elements of the winking edge and fist-pumping fun that made Simpson a household name and Ross an emcee who shares the mic with the likes of T.I. in the first place.

Both Simpson and Ross are making a long awaited return to their second home, the stage, for a run of club dates this month. Tonight they’re stopping by Union Stage at the Wharf for an intimate, energized shows. On Tap caught up with the two via email to talk about being back in the studio, and on the road, tease out a preview of the set list and see if there is any more new music down the pipe.

On Tap: So tonight will be the first time either have you performed live in front of an audience in sometime. How are you feeling? What are you thinking in the lead up?

Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross: We are so excited and can’t wait to get in front of our fans, friends and family. We’ve been working hard on our live performance so we hope everyone has as much fun as we do on stage.

OT: Ashlee – I know that a lot of your previous musiOT: Both of you have been on hiatus from the music world as you’ve been starting your new family, belated congratulations by the way, but did both of you miss performing while you were away?

AS and ER: Definitely, it’s been so nice to be home and spend time raising our family, but performing is in our blood. We can’t wait to get out there and meet our fans.

OT: Had you been working on material in these intervening years or did your new songs come much more recently?

AS and ER: We’re always working and singing to each other. But these songs came to us pretty quickly recently. It felt so natural and fun to work together in the studio.

OT: Your EP is a mix of acoustic and produced electronic tracks. How will you be adapting them to these live spaces?

AS and ER: You’ll have to come to the show to see!

OT: Will you go for more of the sound of “I Do” and make these intimate, quiet shows or do you still want that big, electro-pop sound?

AS and ER: Our EP is definitely intimate, but we love to dance. We’re performing some old stuff and also performing some covers to keep the energy high. We want fans to sing along and forget their outside life for the hour they’re with us.

OT: How do those songs resonate with you now?

AS: Performing these songs now is so fun and takes me back. I was going through so much at that time, and I feel like young people have things to say and it’s really important to remember that.

OT: Do they mean something different to you now as a mother, as a performer in this new space with Evan?

AS: No, these songs were such an important part of my life then, and it’s very cool to sing them now and have my husband be a part of it.

OT: What are you most looking forward to about playing this short run of shows?

AS and ER: Being able to have fun with each other on stage, see familiar faces again and for it to inspire us for what’s to come.

OT: Where do the two of you seeing this new musical venture going: A full album, a larger tour; another tour period?

AS and ER: We’ll have more music out together soon but we’re also working on our own projects. Plus who knows which city we’ll end up in next after this run?

This interview has been edited for length and clarity.

Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross‘ performance is at 8 p.m. tonight, doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25. For more information about the performance, visit here.

After living a relatively low-key life since their marriage in 2014, Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross have been back in a big way since last fall. She, the former pop starlet, reality TV star and sister of Jessica Simpson; and he, a star on Fox show STAR and youngest son of diva Diana Ross, began with an idea to record an album of soulful love duets.

A documentary capturing their experience making that album turned into a full season E! pickup of Ashlee+Evan, chronicling not just the music but also their family life. For Simpson, it was a return to the medium that kick-started her career: first on her sister’s MTV show, Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica, and later with The Ashlee Simpson Show. Ross is no stranger to the screen. He had a recurring role in The Hunger Games films, as well as the 90210 reboot. Oh, and his sister is Girlfriends and black-ish star Tracee Ellis Ross. She and Diana Ross both made appearances on the new show, as did Simpson’s family.

Tying into the TV show and the six-song EP, Evan + Ashlee, is a gender-neutral clothing line that incorporates lyrics from their songs into the design. And this month, the two hit the road on their first joint tour and will play at Slim’s on Jan. 17.

Ashlee Simpson, 34, and Evan Ross, 30, made all of these moves at the same time, making them the Hollywood power couple about which you’re just now learning. It also meant the two would be spending all their time together for the foreseeable future.

“We always wanted to do this album together and then, finally, it was the right time,” Ashlee Simpson said, between tour rehearsals at their home studio in L.A. “I was either pregnant or he was on a show. … Once everything started going, it was inspiring.”

Simpson released three records between 2004 and 2008. Her debut, Autobiography, was certified triple-platinum, due in no small part to her TV presence. The chapter was marred by an infamous lip-synching incident on Saturday Night Live—one that in an era of social media would bolster fame rather than infamy. Like her debut LP, 2005’s I Am Me also debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, while a third, 2008’s Bittersweet World, reached No. 4.

Her last song to chart was 10 years ago. That year she left the spotlight to raise her son with her ex, Pete Wentz. Since then, she has acted in Chicago on Broadway on a few occasions. Simpson and Ross now have a 4-year-old daughter.

When she and Ross finally had enough time to collaborate, the floodgates opened.

“It’s funny how a lot of things just come together like that,” Ross said. “There was a lot of these ideas that kind of came together at the same time in a really nice way, luckily.”

Evan + Ashlee will surprise Simpson fans looking for a nostalgia kick. Instead of emo pop anthems like “La La” and “Pieces of Me,” they’ll find mature, sometimes sexy R&B grooves. There’s the flowery ballad “I Do,” funky and seductive “Paris” and “Safe Zone,” disco-flecked “Tonic,” bluesy “I Want You” and the acoustic, poppy-yet-reserved “Home.”

They are different from each other but similar in how they layer Simpson’s sultry rasp with Ross’ smooth vocals. The couple got Ross family friend, Earth, Wind & Fire bassist Verdine White, to play on all of the tracks and produce.

We spoke to both Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross about the inspirations for these songs, working together and what they’ll be doing next: A second joint EP and solo records.

RIFF: All of your projects are intertwined. The TV show premiered the songs. The clothing featured lyrics. Was this primarily an artistic decision or business strategy?

Evan Ross: At the time, with a lot of these songs, there were little messages we were thinking of [for] the Zadig & Voltaire stuff we were doing. We were just adding our creative vibe to it, and I think at the time because we were writing songs, it came the easiest. It just made the most sense.

Your personal and professional lives are also mixed together. Is it difficult to live and work with each other 24-7?

Ashlee Simpson: No, it’s actually nice to do that. Usually, our work will take us somewhere different, or apart from each other, and it’s been fun to have this project together and get to share this time together.

Evan Ross: It actually makes things a lot easier than it would be being apart.

Evan, how did you and Ashlee convince your mom (Diana Ross) to be on the show? Did she need convincing?

Evan Ross: No, not at all. Everybody in my family knew what we were making. We were making a project around our album and sharing our lives in a way that felt special to us. It was an easy kind of a situation. It never felt like I was trying to force them to do anything; [if it did,] we wouldn’t do it.

Ashlee Simpson: Also, we wanted to do something about music and something that was a positive way to look into our lives.

Diana Ross helped you write one of the songs on the EP?

Evan Ross: It will be on the second part of the EP that we’re looking to release around February, but it’s a really special song that I’m excited that we’re doing. It’s her melody, and it’s amazing.

Which of your musical influences inspired Evan + Ashlee?

Evan Ross: A 1,000 percent, my mom. [Family friend] Michael [Jackson], of course, is a huge inspiration for me. We had Verdine White on this album, who produced on this record [and] was a huge influence on the sound of the music.

Ashlee Simpson: Yeah, he was amazing.

Evan Ross: A lot of this album felt like it was inspired by a lot of the music that we love from back in the day.

Ashlee Simpson: Yeah, it wasn’t just one sound, one genre. It was us being inspired by each other and kind of diving into a different sound for me, which was so much fun.

Ashlee, what have you learned from your previous reality TV shows that you were able to apply this time around—something you did or made sure to avoid?

Ashlee Simpson
: It was definitely like, “Oh, gosh, I haven’t done this in a long time.” This time, we produced the show, and that was nice having that control. But definitely, back in the day, my show was something I do not regret. It was amazing for my fans to be able to go on that journey with me, and I felt the support from that.

When you last toured, you played pretty big shows. Rooms like the Roxy and Slim’s are considerably smaller. Are you ready to get so close to your fans?

Ashlee Simpson: Oh my God, yeah. Even before I did those tours later in my career, I was doing the Roxy, and I was doing both smaller and big venues. I’m excited for that intimate aspect of our show.

What can fans expect from your concerts?

Evan Ross: You’re going to hear the songs you heard on the EP, as well as Ashlee is going to be doing some of her hits from back in the day.

Ashlee Simpson: Yeah, I haven’t done these in a minute!

Evan Ross: There will be some fun covers, and also it’s really intimate and close.

Evan, you’ve written and recorded a few songs before, but are primarily known for acting. Will you be doing more in music going forward?

Evan Ross: Yeah, 100 percent. We’re putting out this next EP, and then we’re going to work on my album as well. She’ll be working on her solo album. It’s going to be really fun to … have a moment to play around with this stuff and kind of share the music. We’re excited.

What will your solo records sound like?

Evan Ross: We’re in the process of figuring that out. We’re already diving into what that will be. What’s fun is [how] the stuff we’re working on right now inspires the stuff that we feel like turning into something for our solo albums. I’m sure we’ll be helping each other in the process.
