Ash Breeze is an up and coming band from. Fayetteville,North Carolina. A little about our history. In 2013 we were signed by Mark Hodges at Mountain Fever Label. We were also blessed to perform on PBS's nationally syndicated Song of the Mountains in February at the Historic Lincoln Theatre in Marion Va., Bluegrass and Barbeque at Silver Dollar City in Branson MO and Dollywood in TN, South Carolina, Houstonfest in Galax VA, and Bluegrass Festivals in Vermont, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island Canada, as well as other great venues. In 2014 we performed in Branson and Dollywood again and were also selected as one of 10 Youth Showcase bands out of 49 applicants Internationally at the International Bluegrass Music Association Convention in Raleigh, NC. In 2015 IBMA selected us as a Showcase Band to perform all week as part of Bluegrass Ramble at the Convention in September.
Our single release, Without Love, from our first CD was selected as a top five finalist in 2014 in The Great American Songwriting Contest. (Christian/Gospel Category) and was one of only 3 finalist in the Gospel category of The Chris Austin Song Contest at Merlefest in 2014. (over 600 entries overall). Our single from our latest CD, The Road, was also selected as one of 12 Finalist in the Christ Austin Song Contest at Merlefest out of over 1,000 entries in 2016 as well.
Our CD, The Road's Not Easy, released in 2015, stayed in the bluegrass charts for over 8 months and we are so excited that it was received so well.
As we look forward to 2017, we have band members in college and leaving college with jobs. We look forward to touring and performing but will be doing so on a more limited basis with this in mind. We think we have a fresh, contemporary sound that honors the roots of bluegrass and pleases traditionalists, as well as reaching out to music lovers of other genre's as well as all generations.
