Off the back of the tremendous news that North Coast muso Ash Grunwald was nominated at the LA Music Critics Awards, came the thrilling announcement that the unique bluesman with the profound ability to bridge the gap between Mississippi tradition and modern Australia, had won the award for Best International Act.
All across the US, on his debut tour of the country, Ash Grunwald collected hearts. According to Nashville Grit, ‘In a genre where it can be difficult to differentiate yourself, Grunwald manages to set himself apart, with his high-octane electric guitar work supported by three foot pedals to provide a touch of percussion, highlighted by a vibrant persona that surely won over a few new fans.’
When Ash played the same music institution where Hendrix blew minds – the famed Fillmore in San Francisco – he wasn’t the only one to walk away feeling like life was different for the better.
Ash Grunwald has always been an artist whose vibrancy and passion for life and music has magnetised people. Right now he has never been in a better, more dynamic place musically, as well as personally, in his entire career.
After such an unforgettable, groundbreaking US run, Ash Grunwald’s national tour – kicking off on Friday August 15 – is destined to be one of the long-roaming troubadour’s best yet.
