NEW BOOK AND ALBUM PRE-ORDER
I am delighted to confirm that my new album is nearly ready! I also have book of poetry, thoughts, lyrics and other oddities which will be released as part of this new project. I have deliberated whether this is indeed the right time to put new art out into the world and have essentially concluded that art is always necessary. I hope that you will find joy, inspiration and hope in this new work, the way I continue to breathe and dream more vividly, when celebrating the art of those I am inspired by.
The new work is available for pre-order now and includes a range of exclusive items and opportunities for you to be involved in what I’m creating. Please visit Waiting For A Voice to sign up, take advantage of exclusive limited edition items and glimpses behind the scenes. I can’t do this without you. Thank you!
EUROPEAN TOUR WITH WAYNE HUSSEY
[2 AUG 2019]
I am delighted to confirm that I will be supporting Wayne Hussey (The Mission) on the European dates of his upcoming Salad Daze Tour! We’ll be playing over 30 shows across Europe together from 3 September - 16 October 2019. It will be absolutely wonderful touring with Wayne again. The Mission were a significant influence on the genesis of The Awakening and Wayne has remained an inspiration in my artistic life. I am also blessed to call him a friend.
From Wayne: "I met Ashton and that beautiful baritone voice of his a few years back and we have since remained friends and supporters of each other's work. Of course we both also continue to be heavily involved with Michael Ciravolo's 'Beauty In Chaos' project. So it is with huge pleasure I can confirm that Ashton will be supporting me on the mainland Europe (except Greece & Sweden) leg of my 'Salad Daze' tour. It'll be great to have him along for the ride. Bring your driving license, Ashton, you can share the driving, there's an awful lot of it."
Please see Tour for more info.

The original pressing sold out within a week of its release and the EP has not been available anywhere since. It contains an exclusive single mix of the iconic "Eve", the unreleased gem "The Going Home", which was a live favourite of the early 2000's, and a live studio version of the stark and haunting "Restraint", also previously unreleased. A must have for any fan of The Awakening, available exclusively from this website.
