Ashland is a Midlands based acoustic, folk and roots duo with Kathryn Marsh on vocals and David Sutherland on guitar/vocals. The idea for the duo came from Kathryn’s search for a musician willing to learn songs penned by her father; songs which helped form many of the musical memories of her childhood. David, a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter with an impressive history of collaborating with others, (Kim Lowings and Chris Cleverley) offered to help. Both musicians soon realised that Kathryn’s pure, yet powerful vocals worked well with David’s own material and so in October 2015, Ashland was formed.

Tracks from their well received debut E.P. ’Funny Old World’, have been played on many community radio stations across the UK. Since forming they have been a featured showcase artist at Laurel Canyon Music and also received positive reviews for their debut release from Fatea Magazine and Folk Monthly.

‘They are currently recording their debut album, which is due for release in early 2018.’
