Ashton Lane ...Biography

Esther O'Connor and her band Ashton Lane loved making their first visit to Nashville, they relished being stateside gigging and getting the gears in motion for the release of their new album, the band have been buried away deep in the recording studio for a few months writing and recording ‘Magic In The Air'. The sound of this new material has emerged somewhere between modern country and the great west coast singer-songwriter pop music of the 60's and 70's.

*Ashton Lane are: Esther O’Connor (lead vocals), Tim O’Connor (guitar, backing vocals) and James Duffin (lead guitar, backing vocals).

*Ashton Lane is an internet phenomena, receiving 3.8 million You Tube views of their 'Kitchen Sessions' in just over 5 months and growing fast. Last month they also achieved the spot of 12th most viewed musician in the UK and 44th most viewed musician on youtube.

* Ashton Lane are kicking off the 2012 year with gigs in Germany, Denmark and Norway, and their lead single from the new album 'One Kiss Later' has just been playlisted on the largest nationwide radio station in Denmark (before official promo has even started properly!)

* The song ‘One Kiss Later’ was also presented with an Honourable Mention in the Pop/Top category from the International Songwriters Competition (ISC).

* Esther O'Connor is the lead singer of her 3-piece band that includes her husband and brother. They write all their own songs, and sometimes even co-write with Dad! (Graeme Duffin from legendary 80’s/90’s band ‘Wet Wet Wet’). Graeme and James also produced this new album “Magic In the Air”

*She has already received support on BBC Radio 2 and on regional radio nationwide.. Esther's previous solo albums also received 4 and 5 star reviews in the national and Scottish newspapers. Tom Morton of Radio Scotland describing one of their tracks as "Neil Young meets Beyonce round at Joni Mitchell's house", recognizing the retro flare that runs through Ashton Lane's music and their love of a sassy pop hook. Journalists and fans alike recognize that Ashton Lane are trailblazers, talented musicians forging the way ahead in this new musical landscape.

*Ashton Lane's past festival appearances include; T in the Park, V Festival, Celtic Connections, Big in Falkirk and Free-at-the-Dee, plus many many more. Their live performances have been hailed by the critics as “Sublime” and “Spine-tingling” (The List), “A real rock n’ roll princess” (The Sunday Mail) and possessing “A voice rich in depth and emotion” (The Buteman).
