Formed in early 2018, ASHRR is a synth-rock / new wave/ indie band made up of singer-songwriter Steven Davis and artists/producers Ethan Allen and Josh Charles. The trio has a long eclectic musical background that meld experience and influence from a multitude of styles and genres, that when combined results in a familiar yet unique and contemporary sound. Steven Davis’ roots can be traced back to singing gospel in a Midwestern church that pave the way to a booming career as a professional musician. Through his career he’s shared the stage with icons such as Diana Krall and Tony Bennett, headlined Rockefeller Center's rarefied Rainbow & Stars and co-writes with pop legend John Oates. Ethan Allen is a record producer, mixer, engineer, writer, multi-instrumentalist musician. His credits include Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Ben Harper, Tricky, Luscious Jackson, The Cult, Gram Rabbit and Sheryl Crow among others, as well as many licensing placements in film and television. Josh Charles is a critically acclaimed piano prodigy, guitarist, singer, producer and songwriter mentored by the late Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Dr. John. He has recorded for Columbia Records/Sony Music Entertainment, Island Records and Elektra Records/Warner Music Group. In addition to songwriting credits with John Oates and others, he has toured with The Neville Brothers, Joss Stone, and the late Buckwheat Zydeco. Josh also works as a sound designer for Native Instrument's sounds.com and SPLICE.
ASHRR’s unique musical diversity can be heard throughout Oscillator with each song written and performed with distinct purpose and meticulous skill. The band’s contrasting backgrounds allows for a collision of influences from new wave and art rock to indie electronic pop, and thematic elements that are profound and thoughtfully poetic.
ASHRR’s unique brand of new-wave/post-punk influenced alternative rock continues to resonate with fans and critics around the world, garnering rave reviews and attention from NPR.org, Post-Punk.com, LA Weekly, Buzzbands.la and more. The band’s newly released album, Oscillator, has spun off several riveting singles that are familiar in sound and yet offer a completely fresh and exciting style that’s unlike anything on the airwaves today.
Within a reverb induced pop stew, ‘Mind Monogram’ create stunningly blissful soundscapes that swirl in suspended sonic animation.
