“This was a song that came to us very quickly,” explains frontman and band moniker inspiration Ashley Sherlock. “We started with the riff and once we got a few words rolling, the theme almost wrote itself. It’s a very personal song about overcoming challenges and the instinctive ‘Fight or Flight’ emotion we have all experienced in various contexts. The idea that something can beat you down, but only if you let it.”
The band hit the Great British Rhythm & Blues Festival in Colne on 24thAugust.
Ashley Sherlock are a Manchester-based rock band. After several years and hundreds of gigs performing as a solo artist, vocalist/guitarist Ashley formed a blues rock three-piece and quickly wrote and recorded fresh material with producer Kenneth Nixon (of Framing Hanley fame). The talented trio’s sound is a modern take on the blues and country songwriting of the American Deep South combined with a confident command of classic rock dynamics and crowd-pleasing riffs.
