Ash Grunwald

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.
