Conrad Ashton, singer song writer, is a well-crafted, unique artist who always gives an exciting, professional and electrifying live performance; whether he is performing on his own or performing with one of his carefully selected backing bands.
At the age of 10 he found himself watching The Who performing at Live 8 on television. It was Pete Townshend’s electric stage presence that made Conrad realise what he wanted to do with his life.
Shortly after, he received his first guitar. He became obsessed with it and ended up practicing hour upon hour, day after day.
Singer Song Writer – Conrad Ashton
His poetry became lyrics. His lyrics became songs. Yet Conrad still wanted to broaden his knowledge of music.
As soon as he could, he enrolled himself onto a 2-year music course at New College Durham.
When his course at New College Durham came to an end, Conrad decided that he wanted to study for a BA (Hons) Degree. This would further his knowledge of music and help him finally sell himself as an artist. He was accepted with open arms at one of the top conservatoires in Europe, Leeds College of Music. Alongside his studies Conrad was writing for other artists. After seeing them gain some success with the music he had written he decided to record his own EP called ‘Zebra Crossing’. A short amount of time passed after releasing the EP and he decided to pull ‘Zebra Crossing’ as he felt it wasn’t good enough.
One For The Road
Conrad Ashton singer songwriter is also available as a support artiste for major bands travelling through the UK.
It is fair to say that the future is incredibly bright for Conrad.
Shortly after the release of ‘One For The Road’ he will be aiming to complete a UK tour which will bring his music to his current and new audience.
Conrad is already aiming to record and release another album very soon. One for the Road – 5 Sep 2015. New venues are invited to contact him for booking details.
