Ash Mountain is the name of Manchester songwriter Tim Scott's rotating band of musicians. Somewhat reinvigorated after recruiting the vocal and writing talents of singer Matt Jones in 2018, soon after the now settled line-up released their EP - Boom. October 2019 sees the band release their second EP - Black Gold, co-produced and mixed by longterm collaborator Dave Scott (Oasis, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Ian McNabb)
The band cite everything from The Stones & Dylan to Townes Van Zandt & Calexico as influences, it's great to hear a Manchester band who're willing to push the Americana-envelope without sounding dated or derivative.
"Highly enjoyable ...even better when you crank it up!" Americana UK
Staring into the Manchester drizzle you'd be hard pushed not to dream of sunnier climes. In the case of Ash Mountain, the band couldn't afford the airfare, so it's a tequila drenched desert scene of an imagined America for them.
