Ash Grunwald is one of Australia’s most loved bluesmen, and for the first time he’s taking his passionate storytelling from the stage to the page. Loved for his crowd-frenzied shows and blistering guitar playing, he’s had critics and fans raving about his unique blend of roots, beats and a whole lotta groove for over a decade.
Ash has built an enviable career around his lifestyle, touring with some of the world’s best guitarists and surfers. But behind the talented musician is a man who came from humble beginnings, the son of South African migrants who sent their children to private schools but lived out of a bus. A family rich in sporting talents, Ash discovered surfing at 19 and found his passion travelling around Australia in a van surfing by day and jamming by night.
Mushroom Records will release Ash’s album to coincide with the release of the book on August 19.
