On February 28, 2020, Canadian singer- songwriter, Taylor Ashton will release
his debut solo album e Romantic on Signature Sounds. Heralded for his 'rich, compelling voice' (Exclaim! Magazine), Ashton released four albums of heady progressive folk with the Vancouver- based Fish & Bird before moving to New York City in 2015. For a solo debut, e Romantic is wonderfully collaborative and nds Ashton working with di erent players from song to song. Ashton writes, ' e album is like a supernaturally good party - the musical conversation ows naturally, di erent people come and
go who bring di erent energies but it
keeps a consistent tone. ematically,
e Romantic is a document of Ashton's identity as an expatriate Canadian living in the U.S., 'processing change and loss and seeing the beautiful painful passage of time, from twelve di erent angles.' With his solo debut, Ashton brings his wide-ranging and richly textured folk-pop to a larger audience, appealing to an equally wide-range of fans from traditional old-time music to Harry Nilsson, Joni Mitchell, and Bill Withers.
