Ash Grunwald is one of Australia's most loved bluesmen. Loved for his crowd-frenzied shows and blistering guitar playing, he's had critics and fans raving about his unique blend of roots, beats and whole lotta groove for over a decade. Ash has built an enviable career around his lifestyle, touring with some of the world's best guitarists and surfers. But behind the talented musician is a man who came from humble beginnings, the son of South African migrants who sent their children to private schools while living out of a bus. Mushroom Records will release Ash's album to coincide with the release of the Surf by Day, Jam by Night on August 19.
