Ash Grunwald returns to the Last Drop

Australian indie bluesman Ash Grunwald performs two shows at the Last Drop on Feb. 15 and 16 as part of a tour of B.C.

Australian indie bluesman Ash Grunwald performs two shows at the Last Drop on Feb. 15 and 16 as part of a tour of his “second home” of British Columbia.

An avid snowboarder and surfer, Grunwald began touring B.C. early in his career, attracted by its legendary powder, back country, and heli-boarding.

Today his performances in ski resort towns are sometimes greeted by upwards of 400 enthusiastic fans. Back in Australia, Grunwald has earned five ARIA (Australian Juno) nominations, two Australasian Performing Rights Association Awards and a Best Independent Blues and Roots Album prize from the Australian Independent Record Label’s Association. His collaborations with leading hip hop and dub step artists have netted him two major radio singles and made him a minor star in his homeland.

Grunwald started playing his own brand of swampy, stomp-box-driven Delta blues covers and originals about a decade ago – inspired by his hip-hop upbringing and a love of the southern standards. Since then, he has opened for James Brown, Bo Diddly, and the Black Keys, toured with Jack Johnson and played the Montreaux Jazz Festival.

His song “Walking” was featured on the soundtrack to the movie Limitless, featuring Robert DiNiro. His song “Breakout” was featured in promo for the film Moneyball.  Contributed by Heather Kitching
