Ashland blends different genres of music within the many varieties of rock that are present today and some of progressive artists of the past. Creating complex rhythmical arrangements and catchy melodies without going over the listeners head. Ashland's version of "Progressive Music" is to move ahead and experiment....and not to attempt to create what has already been, like so many other bands do.
With 3 albums credited to their name, each album is very distinct from the previous one, giving the listener a different flavor each time.
The band consist of Wayne Tapia (Guitars/Backing Vocals),Chad McMurray (Bass/Lead Vocals/Keys),Kevin Brooks (Guitars/Backing Vocals)and Dean Katona (Drums/Percussion).
