Brice Ash’s debut solo album, The Chariot, carries with it the hopeful hurt, raw honesty, and stirring stories that fans of his rough-hewn songwork have come to expect. Ranging from the heart-wrenching piano/cello duet, “Joe’s Final Bow” to the gritty roots rocker “Has-Been Man”, the record brims with humanity – brash cowgirls, broken old men, homeless saviors, high-school nerds. Their stories are woven together in an Americana soundscape as Ash explores the corners and alleys of the human condition.
Ash teamed with Andy Osenga [The Normals, Caedmon’s Call] to produce and engineer the record, and partnered with Bob Bullock [George Strait, Asleep at the Wheel, Todd Snider] to mix it.
Born and bred in Wichita, KS, Ash taught himself to play his father’s old guitar (and any other instrument he could get his hands on). In college he fronted the acoustic alt-rock band Beggars Table, and eventually migrated to Kansas City where he composed music for his local faith community.
After 12 years in Nashville, where he could be found co-writing with hit-writers and playing sold out shows at legendary venues like the Bluebird Café, Brice moved his family to Bozeman, MT in early 2017 where the slower pace and breath-taking surroundings continue to nourish his creativity.
