Ashton and Finnen, two kindred-spirit musicians, both inductees of the South Australian Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame and friends for 35 years, join together for the first time on record. They form a formidable partnership, evoking a tapestry of varied cultural influences, weaving the sounds of Indian, Arabic and African traditions into the album.
Recorded live, first or second take, this spontaneous session involved no rehearsal or pre-production.
Ashton has spent the past 30 years touring Australia and Europe, recording with some of the biggest names in blues and rock including musicians from Deep Purple, Robert Plant’s and Rory Gallagher’s bands and touring with artists such as Buddy Guy, Mick Taylor, Peter Green and many more. His contribution to this album includes material written on the road through Poland, the Czech Republic and the UK.
“Chris Finnen is one of Australia’s most innovative guitarists. He took us down to the crossroads and off into space, from Delta Blues to Chicago, from Adelaide to Northern Australia via India and Africa.” - The Australian, February 2013.
Finnen has performed for the Dalai Lama, been a guest of the International Expo in Nagoya, Japan, and shared the stage with some of the world’s best, including Buddy Guy, Bo Diddley, Jimmy Witherspoon, Roy Buchanan, Eric Burdon, Keb Mo, and many more.
