SATURDAY 21st December - 11.30am- 12.30pm - Art Beat
Releasing 4 singles over the last four years - Christchurch rock outfit, Ashei, have started to see more commercial success following their third single, Let Me Down, which in 2011 saw A-rotation on C4/FOUR whilst being made "Video of the Week" upon it's release on the popular music tv channel, and their own NZOnAir Decent Exposure segment, setting up Ashei as a local band to keep your eyes on.
Ashei have just recorded their debut EP over at Loose Stones Studios on the Gold Coast of Australia with 2 of the country's most sort after engineers Matt Bartlem and Tyse Lee, helped by an incredibly and unexpectedly (on the artist's behalf) successful Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign in which they raised $10,000USD. The EP will be mixed and mastered by Grammy award winning engineers, J.R McNeely (independent) and Ted Jensen (Sterling Sound) respectively. The EP's first single is set for release Summer 2014 with the EP following shortly after.
Whilst working away on their EP, Emma and Liam have been enjoying a spout of exploration in to their acoustic musical chops, releasinxg a series of acoustic/live music videos over the last few months and performing live around the city of Christchurch, including our very own ArtBeat on Saturday 21st December.
