Some artists you just know are going to be doing their craft, no matter what and
no matter where, for the rest of their life; it's just what they do. They'll
grow and change with their songs and the music they play, and so will their
music grow and change with them as they move through life. This kind of
dedication, over time, can yield some powerful music and goes a long way in
creating the kind of creative environment in which the song and the artist
become inseparable; where the listener knows, somewhere down deep, that this
symmetry of song and singer is the real deal, forged in the fires of life.
Ash Ganley is that type of artist. Ash has been a humble apprentice to many a
musical muse over the years, and spent his time touring and recording in bands -
as both a bandleader and side man - that have ranged in style from Reggae to
Bluegrass, Alt Country to Blues Fusion and Rock and beyond. All of these
different styles naturally found a hybrid home in Ash's own unique voice as a
singer, songwriter and guitarist.
In an age where too often the desire for instant gratification and disposable
commercialism have wed to dominate the music marketplace, rare is an artist like
Ash Ganley who is able to distil down his myriad musical experiences into such a
potent, well-honed mix of roots rock, timeless acoustic pop, and edgy Americana
Soul music in a way that sounds seamless, comfortably familiar and totally
An Ash Ganley Show literally covers all the bases, from an intimate acoustic
duo; to the rootsy acoustic slide guitar with stripped down, Delta-inspired
drums and bass; all the way up to the high energy full band Americana/Rock/Soul
sounds. From Red Rocks to back yard parties, Ash has learned the art of
audience-performer energy transference and taps into that natural communion
Ash has a clearly authentic quality to his commercial sound.
"These Ash Ganley
tunes are really good listening and it occurs to one right away that a principle
reason is the background vocals of Andria Ganley, which are spot on perfect! She
sounds, to me at least, like one of my favorite singers, Margo Timmons. The
quality she brings to the sound of this band really elevates it to a higher
level. Ash has that assured virility in his sound that you hear in guys who
have achieved a certain level of professionalism. There is a quality in his
sound that says he has arrived at his musical destination, which is powerful
