Listing Detail Tabs

Produced by Nick Didia (Pearl Jam / Springsteen / Rage Against the Machine) from studio 301 in Ash’s home town of Byron Bay, NOW is set to stand as a sonic landmark in Ash Grunwalds career as a respected Australian roots musician. Grunwald delves into a more experimental and modern approach explaining his intention was to create a “modern psychedelic, sci-fi, swamp rock, blues album, IF THERE IS SUCH A THING. HA!” Drawing inspiration from collaborators Ian Peres (Wolfmother) on synth, Pete Wilkins (formerly Blue King Brown) and of course Nick Didia, Ash aimed to approach the album with a traditional power trio reminiscent of seminal acts such as Hendrix and Cream.

“I wanted to go in there with a traditional power trio like Hendrix but use a synth player instead of a bass, Ian Peres brought that and a whole lot more playing a fair bit of rock organ in there which is something that he honed whilst playing in Wolfmother. In the studio we used a whole lot of our own effects, for example I had the same vocal effect that I use when I play live. While doing vocal takes I had a guitar delay pedal on a music stand that I would tweak to the feel of the song, if I got it wrong, we did it again. The effects where very much part of the music, which Nick (Didia) encouraged. Nicks approach was to basically coach the band into doing the best possible performances as he pulled the sound he was chasing in real time. The aim was for the end product to be as close as possible to what we were delivering live in the studio.” – Ash Grunwald
