Blood Wolf Moon by Tommy Ashby

A gorgeous telling of a simple story. Vocally reminiscing on the engagement of emotion and self-awareness while courting their relationship. The lyrics are poetic, stunning, and honest. Musically the track is generous, compiling a lush mixture of instrumentation and catering to the indie-folk crowd.

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.

Scottish singer/songwriter Tommy Ashby’s vocal is akin to Novo Amor or Harrison Storm. The passion is evident, and his pace and delivery are smooth. The track, Blood Wolf Moon, was co-produced by producer Sam Okell, a fellow artist, and double Grammy Award winner. Recorded in a home studio at the start of the pandemic, Tommy brought in his father on double bass and his girlfriend in the subtle backing vocals.
