new Sean Ashby disc due in March

Among the new releases I’m looking forward to in the next month is the second disc from guitarist Sean Ashby.

After many years as Sarah Mclachlan’s guitarist, Sean released his first solo effort, “Brass And Gold,” in the spring of 2008. A collection of rockers and ballads, Sean hit the road for more than 200 dates across Canada, backed by airplay at rock radio and the CBC. An in-demand guitarist, Sean also managed to squeeze in two tours with Delerium since his album’s release.

“24 Hours Of Daylight” is set for release next month, and if you’ve had the chance to catch Sean on the road, you’ve likely already had a preview of what’s to come, as he's been working new material into his set. Along with some rockers, the new disc will have a rootsy vibe to it, featuring Sean’s work on the lap steel guitar, a highlight of his live shows.

Sean will, once again, hit the road to bring his music to the masses; check out for tour dates and more details.

In the meantime, here’s a taste of Sean’s work for you to enjoy…
