Tommy Ashby releases a new single ‘One Word’ via Wow and Flutter Records.
Co-written with Tom Havelock (Sub Focus, Matrix, Futurebound), the new song follows up the ‘Golden Arrow‘ EP, which is approaching 2 million streams and which has received airplay from Fearne Cotton on BBC Radio 2.
He has also had his music featured on Love Island, Riviera, Greys Anatomy and Silent Witness, and has a cameo in Will Ferrell’s new movie ‘Eurovision’.
Raised in Innerleithen, Ashby’s local hero band were Frightened Rabbit who come from just down the road in Selkirk. He also has a PhD in Psychoacoustics which covers how the brain processes sound.
Ashby said about the single: “I am a serial overthinker and procrastinator, my every decision is overanalysed, and any wrong one leaves me in a guilt-ridden mess. I think this is a pretty common feeling made more prevalent by social media and the pressure to have a ‘successful’ modern life.
Having completed his first UK headline tour at the end of 2019, the singer has in the past supported Luke Sital-Singh and Nina Nesbitt, as well as completing a tour of the USA and Canada with Tom Speight.
A support show for Eliza Shaddad due to take place in London’s Scala in early April was inevitably cancelled, but the exact line-up was instead streamed live from the artist’s home, to an engaged audience on Instagram.
He will also perform a live version of ‘One Word’ on Instagram on May 14th, with more Insta Live performances to be announced.
