Session musician Tommy Ashby shows off his talents on latest track ‘Guilty’.  After collaborating with the likes of Jamie Lawson, Nina Nesbitt and Chris Bond (Ben Howard), this song’ is the mark of an artist who’s ready to step to the fore with his own original material. Opening with hummed vocals and jangling acoustic guitars, the track gives off a spaced out western feel. Ashby’s heavenly vocals cut perfectly through the mix, sound sublime over the handclaps of the chorus and the added percussion of the ending; which has a definite Bad Seeds feel.

Speaking of the lyrical concept, Ashby shares: “Guilty is obviously about infidelity and is told from the guilty party’s point of view. I wanted to look at how people approach telling someone they love what they have done and the latent love left behind after the confession.”

Tommy Ashby will play The Groucho Club in London on Monday (13th Nov), tickets available here.
