Ash Gray and The Burners

Ash Gray and The Burners

Ash Gray and The Burners, a five-piece band, play high-energy, Southern-tinged alternative country and rock.

Hailing from Austin, Texas, Gray, now based in Sheffield with the band The Burners, plays cosmic country mixed with bluesy Texas rock.

Their latest album, Chickenwire, blends country and bluegrass with undertones of psych, rewriting the grand Austin tradition of the ‘cosmic cowboy’, produced by Austin producer Chris ‘Frenchie’ Smith (Meat Puppets, Datsuns, Dandy Warhols etc)

Ash has been gigging regularly across the UK, both solo and with his band, The Burners, at festivals like Red Rooster and Tramlines.

Before settling for a number of years in New York City, initially scratching that hard-rock itch as guitar-slinger with legendary Epic recording artists The Cycle Sluts From Hell, Ash shifted gear, forming the acoustic folk-pop harmony band Ash Gray & The Girls, celebrating the release of the album, Born In The Summer, with a string of dates in the New York and New Jersey area. Pinballing between NYC and his Texas hometown, Ash finally bit the bullet, recording his debut solo album, Once I Got Burned, with such Austin luminaries as Dave Biller (Dale Watson, Wayne Hancock), John Hagen (Lyle Lovett) and producer Chris Burns (Asleep At The Wheel, Jerry Jeff Walker, Dale Watson).

Gray has been working on recording new songs with his five-piece band as well as a live release from several shows via video and album.
