About Conrad Ashton
Conrad was 9 years old when he witnessed Pete Townshend's exhilarating stage presence at Live 8, changing his life forever.
He knew he wanted to make music and soon after picked up a guitar. By the age of 11, he was writing his own songs and beginning to develop his own unique style. As Conrad got older, music became an outlet for his struggles with depression and anxiety and an escape from the 9 to 5 grind. Infusing his music with sincerity and remarkable passion, Conrad has an undying belief in himself and his music, and hopes to inspire and entertain.
Conrad Ashton shares modern rock music that is firmly rooted in the classic pop sound. Conrad has a no-nonsense approach to music making and performance - he is simply himself. A constant student of music, Conrad keeps a steady focus on designing eloquent lyrics that remain humble and relatable for every song he writes.
Ashton is inspired by the likes of The Who, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles & Elvis.
Genre: classic meets modern rock
