Conrad Ashton is a singer/songwriter from Spennymoor County Durham who creates his own brand of true to life dance rock. Inspired by artists like The Who, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles and Elvis, Conrad shares modern rock music that is firmly rooted in the classic pop sound. A constant student of music, he keeps a steady focus on designing eloquent lyrics that remain humble and relatable for every song he writes. The melodies, rhythms, and layers of his sound highlight current rock influences while giving a respectful nod to the decades and artists of the past. Falling into a genre he likes to call beyond basic rock and roll, Conrad Ashton balances the importance of the music and lyrics with poetry in motion performing to create his desired result for every tune.
After Ashton’s release of single “Time”, he is releasing a full acoustic set of songs as an EP “No Post On Sundays”. About the EP, Conrad says, “Push the boat out and see what happens, the songs are really from my life experiences and I chucked in an acoustic version of “Time” for good measure. My plans are to ideally release it in August to keep the momentum of this single going.”
“Time” kicks into high gear right off the bat with Conrad’s passionate voice and a driving beat. The song has emotive writing style backed up by an energetic rock n roll feel. The chorus changes key in a very unique and clever way, delivering the catchy hook with a bang. The lyrics are personal and reflective, but are straight forward enough that anyone can connect to his message and story. The guitar style is melodic and precise, picking through the measures and exploding with giant chords. The song blends the mentality of a personal singer/songwriter style with the enthusiasm and energy of a pop rock anthem.
