"DRESSING LIKE YOU" FEATURED ON SIDELINE'S "POST-PUNK GENESIS"

[8 September 2021]

My song “Dressing Like You” was chosen for Sideline Magazine’s “Post-Punk Genesis” compilation. It is already the 3rd most downloaded release on Bandcamp, across all genres :-).

Here’s a little more about it from Sideline: “Today the Belgian magazine launches the free Post Punk download compilation Post Punk - Genesis, uniting 44 Post Punk artists from all over the world. You can expect an eclectic collection of all of the colors you can find inside the Post Punk scene, from pure New Wave to contemporary mixes of Post Punk and electronics. There will be something for everyone!

Of the 1564 submissions the magazine received in total, Side-Line chose 44 bands to be included in the final selection.”

The compilation is available here: https://sidelinemag.bandcamp.com/album/post-punk-genesis with all proceeds to various charities.

 

ACOUSTIC ALCHEMY TOUR

[26 June 2021]

I am pleased to confirm that I am now booking dates for my Acoustic Alchemy Tour (part 1)! 

Following a number of inquiries for private acoustic shows, I thought I’d put the word out that I am finally available for shows here in the US, starting mid-October 2021. I am fully vaccinated and very excited by the prospect of finally sharing my latest 2 albums, along with my back catalogue of solo works, The Awakening, collaborations, and other oddities, with those who want to experience it all in a magical live environment again. We have various show options available, ranging from intimate house concerts to larger theatrical events. Please visit www.ashtonnyte.com/live for details, or just to let me know where you’d like to see me perform :-).

It should go without saying that I am very eager to perform in Europe, South Africa, and the rest of the world again and look forward to confirming 2022 dates as possible. For now, these smaller shows are a wonderful way to celebrate the live experience while we all navigate the safest way forward.

With love

Ashton

JACARANDA FM INTERVIEW / PODCAST

[14 OCT 2020]

I recently spoke to the lovely Danny Painter on Jacaranda FM about life, loss, lockdown, and of course Labyrinth. We laughed, we cried, I choked on my tea - all in the name of authenticity. Best enjoyed with a sensible beverage, consumed safely.

Listen here.

 

AMERICAN SONGWRITER INTERVIEW

I am delighted to share the lovely in-depth conversation I had with Tina Benitez-Eves, published in American Songwriter today. We cover everything from art, inspiration, and loss, to magic, Bowie, and indeed The Rocky Horror Picture Show. This beautifully written piece is best enjoyed with a good coffee. I recommend a dark roast (naturally).
