About this Event

TOMMY ASHBY at STRING JAM CLUB (plus support)

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 new EP ‘Golden Arrow’ was released on April 26th 2019 via Wow and Flutter Records. There’s a lot of contrast throughout the ‘Golden Arrow’ EP but the music lives in the same world as his first EP ‘Restless Love', thanks to Grammy award-winning Producer Sam Okell (John Grant, Graham Coxon). He instinctively knew when to leave a track stripped back using Tommy’s pure vocal, acoustic guitar rhythms plus just a few atmospheric touches and when to bring in much bolder production.

Tommy has been supported by tastemaker press such as Clash, Record Of The Day, When The Horn Blows and Celebmix, as well as Fearne Cotton, Radio 2, BBC Scotland and various Spotify editorial playlists. His tracks have been featured in many popular TV shows including Grey’s Anatomy, Riviera, Netflix’s The Innocents and NBC’s Midnight Texas to name a few.

Tommy was the main support on Luke Sital Singh’s April 2019 UK tour and has recently supported Allman Brown, Skinny Living, The Xcerts and Tom Speight. He has previously toured the UK & Europe supporting Rhodes, Jamie Lawson and Nina Nesbitt.

Tommy’s recently headlined St Pancras Old Church, London. String Jam Club is thrilled to be welcoming Tommy back to the club. Having played here when he was starting out, it's such a pleasure to see how his career has taken off so successfully, though it is certainly no surprise. Music has always been Tommy's life from an early age & he is a fine guitarist with a superb & distinctive voice, standing out for its range & haunting tone, and an uncanny ability to write memorable songs that resonate with atmosphere and emotion. We are so pleased to have been part of his journey. Now am upcoming star in his own right, he can now count himself as one of the finest emerging artists to have come from the Borders. His star is rising. Don't miss this exceptional, exciting & original performer, live and up close at String Jam Club.

"His ability to craft songs which effortlessly intertwine fresh, innovative production with classic folk and blues influences is simply unparalleled.” Atwood Magazine

"Wonderfully fresh songwriting, it glistens with energy while searching towards something persona." Clash

“A richly nuanced affair that’s built around a steadily mounting wash of rich guitars, laying the foundation for Ashby’s effortlessly emotive vocal.” Louder Than War
