Ash Grunwald

Ash Grunwald is reinventing the blues and roots genre for a modern audience. Combining delta blues with hypnotic, %uFFFDphat%uFFFD grooves, this one-man band has played his unique songs to audiences from the Mississippi Delta to the furthest reaches of coastal Australia. More than just a powerhouse vocalist, Ash is sliding, stomping & hollering his way into the lives of fresh audiences around the globe.

Following the acclaim of "Introducing Ash Grunwald", Ash released %uFFFDI Don%uFFFDt Believe%uFFFD - a landmark modern blues and roots album. Much of the album featured percussion, which Ash creates on the spot using his foot controlled sampler and pots, pans, hammers, spanners, guitars, beat boxing and claps. Once Ash has built a percussion loop, he brings in his foot percussion, which consists of stomp box and foot tambourine. Over this Ash layers his trademark guitar grooves, stunning vocals and lyrics. "I like to try and take what%uFFFDs good about the early delta blues, which to me is the soulfullness of the singing and guitar playing and combine it with what%uFFFDs cool about modern music like the grooves found in a lot of rap and roots stuff. I%uFFFDm trying to use these elements to make new music that%uFFFDs fresh and relevant%uFFFD.

Winning the Melbourne Blues Performer Of The Year competition in 2003, Ash headed to Memphis in 2004 to compete with over 50 blues artists in the International Blues Challenge, where he was very well received reaching the finals and playing live to millions of viewers on %uFFFDGood Morning Memphis%uFFFD.

Ash Grunwald is continuing to make his mark on the Australian music scene, touring constantly from coast to coast playing everything from high profile festivals to small clubs in country towns. Ash has appeared live on Commercial TV in Canada, Memphis, and Australia and regularly on radio stations like JJJ, ABC and 3AK, and has received strong support from community stations around the country.
