Scottish singer-songwriter Tommy Ashby, releases his lovely single ‘Blood Wolf Moon’. Grounded in the melt waters of beauty, Tommy’s vocals depict the vision that successfully takes us on a journey of love and rhythm.
“When I was growing-up I was a wallflower,” said Tommy. “Parties would pin me to a wall and leave me there for the night. I was left wondering how a shy person ever actually meets someone. The internal monologue left running on those nights was so awkward.”
The artist enlisted his father’s help on double bass and added the delicate ethereal backing vocal of his girlfriend to add texture to a playful melodic folk sound. Lyrically, Tommy’s crystal-clear vocal reflects on the intimate story of two shy introverts negotiating being young and in love for the first time.
Added Tommy: “I wanted to show how much of falling in love can be done long before two people actually have a conversation. Seeing someone and watching how they act around their friends, the tiny interactions and glances; I think introverts notice more of this stuff because they spend so much time observing. And how much more gravity things can have when they take time to unfold.”
Co-produced by the artist and double Grammy Award winning producer Sam Okell, ‘Blood Wolf Moon’ follows ‘One Word’ and is the second single to be released from Tommy’s fourth EP ‘Everywhere Is Home’ scheduled for release Summer 2020.
