Xavier Rudd And Ash Grunwald Tackle Joint US Tour

Xavier Rudd and Ash Grunwald are about to embark on a joint tour of the USA.

Grunwald has released 10 albums so to prep the tour he has compiled what could be called a “Best Of’ album with studio and live tracks suggested by fans.

“Many of the songs on this album where recorded in a very non-traditional way,” says Ash. “I’ve really enjoyed pushing the blues into new directions with unusual blends of production and beats.” Many of the beats he’s used over the past five years have been provided by hip hop producers. “I’d often use a hip hop loop and then add elements of ‘junk percussion’ like hammers, spanners, bits of metal and chains.”

The 24-date US tour kicks off next week in Salt Lake City.
