Formed in 2004 Ashland Court is no stranger to the road, hard work and a quality act separates this band from many others. With the independent release of their 5 song EP this band received moderate success with FM radio in Canada and worldwide internet stations. The single Hell’s Sweet Hands continues to open doors for the group. With air play in new markets and most recently a contract has been signed to have the song featured on Rock Band Networks down loadable site. Truly an exciting time for the band and its followers. With a new amazing CD coming out in 2010 and high profile shows the guys are ready to take flight to the next level of their careers. With hundreds of shows behind them they own the stage and deliver a solid energetic performance every time.
The song writing has reached an all time high with Williams, Darby & Riggs with solid and exciting rock riffs and great memorable vocal melodies some of the new songs to watch for are Colder, Control, Waste it, Funny How it is and new Reality. The album is a roller coaster of sound that entices the listener to keep listening. Ashland Court has their own sound their songs are neither boring or predictable. New flavors of melody, harmony, beats and guitar work keep the CD entertaining from start to finish. “our goal was to record an album that we would want to listen to. We have grown tired of CD’s that have a couple of good songs and then fall short. It’s understandable that all these singles are getting downloaded but full Cd’s are not. Most Cd’s have a hard time keeping your attention, this is what we have been trying to avoid.”
The new CD features 11 new tracks including a short acoustic guitar track by Mr. Riggs and an acoustic song by Marshall Williams both have the endearing qualities you would expect from these guys, 9 new full out rock songs, previously unreleased and 2 tracks that were remixed from their debut EP, Hell’s Sweet Hands and beneficial Tragedy. The CD is one great track after another and is sure to convince the skeptics that Ashland Court deserves to be on the big stage and have heavy FM rotation here in Canada and beyond.
