Tommy Ashby — singer-songwriter from London, UK.
Tommy Ashby’s background is a rather unusual one for a singer-songwriter. Awarded a PhD in the perception of sound before most of us have grown out of daily midday lie-ins Tommy manages to blend a technical understanding of the way our brain processes sound with the indisputable pure creative energy of someone who grew up writing and playing music in the wilds of Scotland. Tommy’s recent single Why? follows his live performance of the track on the BBC Scotland Quay Sessions. Such was the positive response, he thought he ought to make a studio recording while putting the finishing touches to the new EP (coming April 2019), again working with double Grammy Award winning producer/mixer Sam Okell, especially known for his work on the ground-breaking immersive audio surround mix of Beatles classic record Sergeant Pepper.
