“Anna Ash captures those long late afternoons when the sun is low but the heat hasn’t yet broken … Call it country, call it rock’n’roll, call it pulling off the road somewhere between Silver Lake and Bakersfield just to roll a cigarette, kick at the gravel, and brood….her songs tell of friends lost to love and loneliness, lovers who conflate real life and fiction, experiences that refuse to conform to familiar plot lines” – Connor Towne O’Neill
Anna Ash is a Michigan born, currently Los Angeles based, musician. Her music has been featured on the Showtime series’ Billions and Masters of Sex, as well as Freeform’s The Fosters and Epix’s docuseries Helter Skelter: An American Myth. Her 2016 self-released album, Floodlights, received attention from the Huffington Post and Elmore magazine, and placements on Spotify’s Fresh Finds, Torch and Twang, Noir, and Fresh Folk playlists. In 2013, her first album, These Holy Days, was released in Japan on Tugboat Records, but since then, she has been self-releasing her albums.
Her last full-length record, L.A. Flame, was mixed by Grammy-award-winning engineer Ryan Freeland (Ray LaMontagne, Bonnie Raitt, Joe Henry). The album was tracked over the course of four days at Mark Rains’ Stationhouse Studio in Echo Park. It features Theo Katzman, Aaron Stern, Lee Pardini, Laura Mace, Matt LaRocca, Jason Roberts, Brian Whelan, and James Cornelison. Ash self-produced the album, and engineered most of the overdubs at her home in Mt. Washington. It was released on vinyl in collaboration with Black Mesa Records in January 2020.
In the spring of 2021 she will be releasing a new EP titled Fire Season; it was recorded and mixed at Eli Crews’ home studio in the Catskill Mountains in November of 2020.
