Title - 'The Garden' [EP]
Artist - Den of Ashes
Ash Beck, the grandson of early Country & Western entertainers John and “Texas Peggy” Clemens / The Wyoming Ramblers circa 1930s – 1950s (who toured and shared friendships with The Carter Family, Tex Ritter, Patsy Cline and Johnny Cash), has just released his brand new EP (and his third studio album), the sweetly melancholic The Garden (out now via Starry Eyed Records).
The singer-songwriter better known as Den of Ashes creates and presents his music as a unique and intimate exploration into the human condition of love, hope, dreams and even death.
The moody melodic songs are about lost moments in time which means there is a rare loneliness there within the deep rich vocals and western tonality, which captures the very essence of the Western landscape.
1. 'Adam and Eve'
3. 'Avenue of Stars'
4. 'Adam and Eve' (Extended Version)
This creatively ornate, musically sublime 4-track EP begins with the lo-fi troubadour vibe of 'Adam and Eve' ("I don't want to fade away, but the rain came down like cellophane, and she just vanished in the haze, and she was"), and that's followed by the harmonica-driven, soulful, earnest reverence of 'Rain.'
Next up is the storytelling of 'Avenue of Stars,' a lonesome reflection of days gone by on this darkly moody, yet thoroughly melodic soundtrack into a journey of solitude, and then the EP wraps on an extended version of 'Adam and Eve.'
