Ash Grunwald set the Mojo Stage alight at Bluesfest earlier this year, with a scintillating show featuring the Moog synth wizardry of Ian Peres and tropical ambassador of rhythm ‘n’ groove, Bobby Alu. It also marked Grunwald's 10th appearance at Bluesfest, which cast Ash into Australian Blues folklore and enshrined Australia’s foremost Bluesman as an institution at Australia's most iconic music festival.

To commemorate this momentous occasion, Grunwald entered Brooklet studios with Ian Peres (Wolfmother, Bernard Fanning), Bobby Alu (Xavier Rudd), and producer Nick DiDia (Springsteen, Pearl Jam, Rage Against The Machine) to record the set the trio smoked at Bluesfest 2023. Entitled The Bluesfest Studio Sessions, the new LP features all your favourites, curated from a career and catalogue spanning 20 years, it’s out now through Delta Groove/MGM.

"I think it's really good to just do things in the old human way and that side of yourself, that is responding to another human being, playing live, that's the really important thing. And that's the
exciting thing about this album. Because it's about a musical synergy, I just feel like this album is about human connection. We should be looking for reasons to come together and cultivate that
human connection, so I’m happy to make that contribution to music, to have something out there like that" – Ash Grunwald, The Bluesfest Studio Sessions.

Ash Grunwald has inspired a generation to hit the road in an old beat-up van to ‘surf by day jam by night’. Throughout his career, he has supported legends James Brown, The Black Keys, Jack Johnson, Xavier Rudd, and Keith Urban, among numerous others, and played sold out festivals across Europe, Japan, and North America. With six Australian Top-50 albums to his credit, alongside five ARIA and four AIR Award Nominations, two APRA Awards, and gong for Best International Act at the LA Music Critic Awards in 2014, Grunwald has cemented his status as one of Australia’s best blues musicians.

Ash rocks the house yet touches the soul, serving a tsunami of dance, beats, roots, bass ‘n’ blues…
