Ash St. John

Thursday, Oct 21, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

“Beautifully mesmerizing"  “You won’t believe the amount of sound energy that comes out of one person”  Ash St. John writes from a place that isn’t always easy to access. This means that songs are often elusive but all the more rewarding when it finally works out. The songs retain a Midwest humility that mirrors the viewpoint of living through seasonal change.  Musically Ash St. John floats between the genres of indie-folk and pop. All the while searching beneath the surface both instrumentally and lyrically.
