Ian Ashford and & The Solidarity Band have just released the single ‘Ally’ on April 7th.
‘Ally’ is the first single from Ian’s second album due out in the summer of 2021. The project is an Irish- Franco collaboration.
“After releasing my first album ‘Symbols’ I tried to keep moving ahead with new songs. The majority of the songs on the new album were written before the pandemic, however the collaboration with the Solidarity Band took place during the spring and early summer of 2020. My hope was to evolve as a songwriter and also to try a new sound and invite people into the creative process more openly. The collaboration was really enjoyable and helped me to cope with the challenges of last years isolation. The discipline of putting an album together kept us all focused. We are grateful to have had a project to work on and hope people connect with the music. ‘Ally’ is our first single from the forthcoming album.”
