Their single, "This Is Who We Are Now," produced under the guidance of Bob Rock, has captured attention with its colossal chorus and soaring guitar solo, garnering praise from Classic Rock magazine.

The Ashley Sherlock Band is a vibrant blues rock band who are establishing a solid reputation of their own and it’s very easy to see what the fuss is about.

The delicately balanced set is an effortless fusion of blues, classic rock, country blues, rock & roll, smooth jazz and soul characterised by powerfully commanding drums, basslines that segue from funky to fluidly smooth and spiralling, sweeping guitar solos that compliment an eclectic and strident vocal that is a cross between Thom Yorke and Matt Bellamy.
