Andrew Ashong, hailing from Forest Hill by way of Ghana has been titled as an essential listen by many music blogs in the past year. The Ghanaian-British artist had his first solo release on Theo Parrish’s label, Sound Signature. The title track, ‘Flowers’ won ‘Track of the Year’ at Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Awards 2013.
When asked, what is behind the excitement of this record, Theo Parrish said;
“The Funk. Right under my nose were all the essential elements: simplicity, drive, and honesty gained from heartfelt experience in Andrew Ashong’s music. It’s more than just that. It’s human.”
Andrew Ashong is focusing on an EP release for Spring 2013 and will be performing material acoustically over the coming months.
That aside, Andrew continues to spin his unrivaled collection of vinyl both old and new across the UK and internationally.
