Johnny Ashby

Johnny found a love for music through his Dad’s old mixtapes. As a teen he played guitar in various bands and, after leaving college, he briefly stepped in to the session world where he played guitar for other touring artists. Aged 24 he set up a small recording studio in the store room at his local guitar shop, where developed his songwriting and taught himself how to write songs. It was here where he recorded his first album Cannonball Days. He then moved to California with a suitcase full of clothes and a guitar he built himself with dreams of playing Doug Weston's legendary Troubadour. Cannonball Days peaked at #9 in the iTunes songwriters chart which led to Huffington Post naming him as a "Top 5 Emerging Icon". Since then Johnny has released 4 well acclaimed EPs and his music has been played on the radio both in the UK and the US, gaining huge support from BBC Introducing and Absolute Radio in London. He's played the Troubadour 3 times and his songs have also featured on primetime television for shows including Pretty Little Liars, Midnight In Texas, Elementary, Rise, Baywatch, Gray’s Anatomy and Teen Mom. Johnny now enters the mainstream in 2019 with “Somebody New” and plans to unleash a handful of singles in the upcoming year.
