Taylor Ashton


When Taylor Ashton first moved to New York City several years ago from Canada, it was on the heels of a breakup and the end of his band Fish & Bird. He took up busking in subway tunnels to get by, armed with his banjo and a few dozen covers. On his new EP, Pizza Tickets, Ashton has chosen seven beloved songs by Joni Mitchell, Kate Bush, Tom Waits, and others. A full-length album of originals, Stranger To The Feeling, will be released in August.
