Song Premiere: ASHRR, "Cities In Dust" (Siouxsie and the Banshees Cover)

Formed in 2018, ASHRR is a synth-rock musical collective made up of singer-songwriter Steven Davis and artists/producers Ethan Allen and Josh Charles. While somewhat new to the music scene in LA, the trio has a long eclectic musical background that melds experience and influence from a multitude of styles and genres.

Steven Davis’ comes from a fascinating musical pedigree ranging from his Midwestern church roots, singing gospel to his booming career as a professional musician. Select highlights include headlining residencies at NYC’s esteemed Rainbow Room; (sharing the stage with icons such as Diana Krall and Tony Bennett, headlining Rockefeller Center’s rarefied Rainbow & Stars) and co-writing with pop legend John Oates. His music has been featured in television and film including, gritty tech-infused thriller “Startup,” CBS hit show “Criminal Minds” and the title song to the Tommy Lee Jones and Morgan Freeman flick “Just Getting Started.”

Ethan Allen is a record producer, mixer, engineer, writer, multi-instrumentalist musician originally hailing from Austin and New Orleans. His credits include Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Ben Harper, The 88, Tricky, Luscious Jackson, The Cult, Gram Rabbit, Sheryl Crow, Tim Finn, Brant Bjork, Donita Sparks, Meg Myers, Patty Griffin, and Better Than Ezra, as well as many licensing placements in film and television.

Josh Charles is a critically acclaimed piano prodigy, guitarist, singer, producer, and songwriter mentored by Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Dr. John. He has recorded for Columbia Records/Sony Music Entertainment, Island Records and Elektra Records/Warner Music Group, and has produced/co-produced and written/co-written seven albums, including his own Love, Work & Money (2010) and 1974. He has been producing exclusive sound content for Native Instruments and Splice. Josh has many songs on radio, film, and TV including several cuts with John Oates.

The collective came together after meeting through mutual friends in music and eventually made their way to the studio beginning in 2018 with one goal: create music for themselves at the highest possible level.
