We are happy to announce that Ashton's debut Afrikaans-language album, "Moederland", is out now!

The album features the charting topping hits "Kan Ons Weer Begin" and "Lukas", a beautiful duet with Karin Hougaard.

You can buy the CD or download from the official store, or buy the CD from kalahari.com or CD stores across South Africa. You can also download the album from iTunes or your favourite digital distributor.

Following a rather prolific and stylistically diverse career, which has included 8 albums with his band The Awakening and 5 critically acclaimed solo albums, Ashton is ready for a new artistic chapter. 

Since 1997 Ashton has been featured in almost every music-related publication, television program and radio show in South Africa. He has headlined festivals both in South Africa and the USA, topped charts on college and national radio, written and performed in theatrical productions and even found time for philanthropic events like his “Rock Against Rape” concert series.


Ashton has just spent the last 5 years in the USA, where his most recent album, “The Valley” was toured from New York to New Orleans and was played on over 40 radio stations. Highlights include a feature on the prestigious Public Radio International’s “The World” and a live in-studio interview and performance on “Voice Of America” to over 125 million listeners world-wide.

Ashton has just toured South Africa both with his band The Awakening and in a solo capacity in March / April 2014 and plans are already brewing to return to South Africa in August / September 2014.

Ashton refers to "Moederland" as “an album that pays homage to my Afrikaans heritage and the country that has shaped me." All twelve original tracks are performed in Afrikaans.
