Part pop, part blues, part folk and all-original, she excels at defying definition: the songs vary from delicate strummed strings and soaring melodies to gritty, growly piano power chords and everything in between, and her lyrics, ranging from gently poetic to downright obscure but always immensely powerful, give you food for thought and stay with you long after the first listen.
ACOUSTIC SOUL-INFUSED FOLK POP
Singer songwriter Ethan Ash began studying music and playing guitar at age six years and has been passionate about music ever since. He played his first solo gig age 12 and went on to perform solo and front a teenage band which played all over the UK before he eventually decided to pursue a solo career.
Soon after Ethan released his debut solo EP he supported Seth Lakeman and Nick Harper, and toured extensively. The debut single from a second EP, ‘No Early Nights’, was chosen as an iTunes Single of the Week.
Ethan supported Ed Sheeran on part of his 2011/2012 sell-out UK tour.
