“One of the greatest male voices I have ever heard and songs that just hit the mark”
Michael Pipe, Music Promoter (2016)
“Ash is one of music’s most impressive songwriters and talents: having garnered critical praise and support; he is still ‘under the radar’- deserving of more respect and acclaim.”
Sam Liddicott, musicmusingsandsuch (2015)
“Great artist, great EP, great track… just great” “…song writing supremo”
Tom Simkins, BBC Introducing (2014)
“Ethan, with just his guitar for company, grabbed the attention …and bewitched them with his stunning, mesmeric voice, his instantly likable stage mannerisms and those all- important hook-laden songs… he proceeded to deliver what has to go down in history as one of the most impressive debuts (if not gigs) at the venue since the grand opening.”
Will Munn, Rhythm & Booze (2015)
“The musician played but a handful of songs, as he was billed along other fellow artists that night. Only six tracks which however were enough to prove that Ash really is talented and that he sounds even better live than on record.”
Rita Vicinanza, Them Cultured Vultures/Music News (2015)
