Many will recall Ash as the front man of Rumanastone, a band who enjoyed success in the late 90s and early-noughties before disbanding in December 2003.
Ash passed in October 2014, age 39, his death the result of a virulent melanoma. The diagnosis came just five weeks earlier, the cancer so brutal it took his life in little more than a month.
He had been working on a solo album with his long-time collaborator, Tim Whitten. With no clear boundaries set, Ash’s work at this time was free-flowing creativity at its finest, the music a mix of folk, rock and pop with electronic flourishes.
Led by Millie Millgate, Ash’s close friend and respected music industry figure, a number of individuals who shared both professional and personal relationships with Ash banded together to honour Ash’s memory by coordinating the release of Transmission via a Pledge Music Campaign.
The campaign surpassed its goal and $9000 was donated to Support Act in Ash’s name and with it his legacy will continue to help other musicians in need.
