Tim Ash releases EP ‘Round 3’



The country music artist known as Tim Ash has released his new EP record, titled, “Round 3.” The album is comprised of six original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 20 minutes. It has been released on the A&M Productions, LLC music record label. It is the precursor to his upcoming LP record, “Up on Blocks,” due out in fourth quarter 2013.


Tim Ash cites as main artistic influences such bands as New Grass Revival, the Little River Band, Three Doors Down, and Tim McGraw. On these basic foundations Ash has constructed a surprisingly unique form of modern country-pop that enfolds elements of rock, indie, pop, country, and bluegrass.


Ash is a musical autodidact and is self-taught on guitar, piano, bass and drums, all of which he learned to play by ear alone. He had mounted the stage for his first solo musical performance at the family church, age 3. He is originally from Bridgeport, IL, but his family moved often. He has remarked that growing up as “the new kid” helped him to become “a person who has never known a stranger.” The church being important to his family, Ash proclaims himself to be a man of faith.


This faith came very much into focus in 2000 when he was struck down by half-a-ton of steel and terribly injured. He was unable to return to his usual life until after 16 months of brutal therapy and rehabilitation. Soon afterward, he returned to music.


Since that time, he has been a desired commodity in the country music scene. A string of talent shows and musical competitions across the Midwest led him to the 2004 CMA Music Fest in Nashville. Tim opened for Travis Tritt’s “Grill for the Thrill” tour that same year, and has appeared with some of country music’s biggest names, from Keith Urban to Rascal Flats.


“Round 3” by Tim Ash is available online worldwide.
