Ash Mountain is the name of Manchester songwriter Tim Scott’s rotating band of musicians. Somewhat reinvigorated after recruiting the vocal and writing talents of singer Matt Jones in 2018, the now settled line-up released their ‘Boom’ EP in spring that year. Produced by Oasis knob-twiddler Dave Scott in Aman, Jordan, however there’s little in the way of Gallagher Bros. or middle-eastern influence in the music!
The band cite everything from The Stones and Dylan to Townes Van Zandt to Calexico as influences, it’s great to hear a Manchester band who’re willing to push the Americana-envelope without sounding dated or derivative.
“Highly enjoyable …even better when you crank it up!” Americana UK
Supported by The Amber List – If The Amber List were furniture, you might describe them as pre-loved. Formed in March 2017 in a Works Unit Only layby on the M6, the four band members have clocked up many music miles between them, and so knew they were onto a good thing.
Peppered with harmonic interludes and touched with atmospherics, their songs range from 60’s folk-tinged ballads to indie pop.

Though all have escaped at various times, the members were all weaned by the pleasant waters of the Ribble in the Lancashire village of Penwortham, and regularly find themselves back in those parts for the making of music – as it sits somewhere between Wigan and St Annes.
