Eigen Beheer / Independent

Genre: Blues Rock
Label: Eigen Beheer/Independent
Promotion: Sjerruf Music Support
 Release Date: April 19th

Sonic Blues Preachers is a red-hot slab of funky, dirty,
bluesy rock n roll laced with some Mississippi Deltainspired 12-string acoustic slide material. Gwyn
Ashton’s ninth studio album project features
collaboration with one of Australia’s most musical
drummers, the formidable John Freeman from the pre
AC/DC Bon Scott-fronted band Fraternity
.These two musicians are on top of their game as they go headto-head into battle, the interplay between them second-to-none
resulting in a cutting-edge album full of rockin’ melodic songs
with a strong pop sensibility, co-penned with Ashton’s writing
partner Garry Allen. The songs are full of hooks, big guitar riffs,
killer bottleneck slide and fat dirty grooves, some cheeky,
sinister and dark but all highly hypnotic and fresh. This collection
of contagious retro-meets-modern should satisfy the most
ardent blues and rock aficionado.
Recorded in Adelaide, Sonic Blues Preachers was then mixed by
Gavin Monaghan at Magic Garden Studio, England through a
vintage analogue recording console (the very one used on
Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust album). The session was interrupted by
Robert Plant taking Monaghan into Abbey Road for a few days
of tracking on one of Plant’s projects. Once again, Ashton’s
mastering engineer former Sony Records Los Angeles David
Mitson, an essential part of the team, brought it all together.
Amongst many other classic albums over a span of 30 years
Mitson also re-mastered Sgt Pepper, Electric Ladyland and the
Sony Blues catalogue, including the Robert Johnson box set.
Ashton’s back catalogue features musicians from Deep Purple,
Rainbow, Whitesnake, Phil Lynott’s Grand Slam, as well as
Robert Plant’s and Rory Gallagher’s bands.
Sonic Blues Preachers is the follow-up to his 2017 highly
acclaimed release
Solo Elektro.
