Better Part of You
Hailing from Saskatoon Canada, Ash Jones combines the Goo Goo Dolls and Ben Harper with a strong undertone of Axl Rose, carving out a musical niche all of his own. Combining the essential elements of poetry, pop sensibility, innate musicianship and powerful thought invoking melody, Ash fishhooks listeners with raw emotion and sincerity. 'Everything I write comes from personal experience, I'm basically just trying to delve inside people and connect with the array of emotions life has to offer.' After years of honing his craft in the trenches of the Saskatchewan acoustic scene, Ash released his debut independent release "Crashing Down" in 2002. The title track was instantly well received, earning Ash a place in the top 12 out of 10,000 entries in the 2003 Canadian National Songwriting Competition. After the competition Ash enlisted Veteran Canadian rockers Angelo Frassetto, Steve Bunka, and Kyle Kildaw from the Touchtone Gurus to perform on and help produce his album "Better Part of You'. Like all great laid plans and intentions, the album was to be released in 2007 once Ash had moved to the London, England but the 'perfect mix' seemed to elude the project for the next few years. Ash continued to live and perform in London throughout 2006 and 2007 garnering great performance reviews. On why "Better Part of You" took so long to complete, Ash states " I had a vision in my mind of how I wanted this album to sound and a plan for how I wanted to achieve it but with so many players and their often competing visions to contend with, a lot of the plans overtime, became unglued. At the end of the day it is the album I've always wanted and dreamed of making. It sounds exactly as I intended and regardless of the time it took to create, I stand proud behind it and will now release it into the atmosphere and let fate take it's course." "Better Part of You" will be internationally released on Nov 20th 2010.
