When they first began writing their debut record, AshenMoon bassist Garry Beers (INXS) and singer Toby Rand unraveled their personal songwriting and began collaborating a “Passion Project” in Beers’ LA garage studio.
There, in the heat of the San Fernando Valley (LA), guitarist/writer Jimmy Khoury joined them to create the recipe and sound of AshenMoon.
Additional songwriting was delivered by UK pianist Kenny Dickenson (KT Tunstall) and Australian drummer Sebastian Gregory (The Veronica’s).
Beers brings his incredible wealth of experience with him from his many years when INXS ruled the world into this brilliant record.
Produced by Beers (co-produced by Rand), the album is influenced by the electronic grooves of Beers’ work with INXS, hooky riffs inspired by Khoury’s work with Beth Hart, whilst Rand traverses his range emotionally with tales of heartbreak, love and redemption; something uniquely his own.
Mixed by Grammy award winner David Reitzas and mastered by Howie Weinberg (Jeff Buckley), the AshenMoon record is majestically anthemic, whilst remaining magnetically intimate.
“Not since my days with INXS have I felt more connected to music.We made this record from the heart and pay homage to all the great rock bands and artists that have inspired us to devote our lives to music”* *-Garry Beers
