"I never wanted to be a singer" says Andrew Ashong, voice behind one of 2013ʼs iconic club hit records ʻFlowersʼ. Andrew Ashong, hailing from Forest Hill by way of Ghana has been titled as an essential listen by many music blogs in the past year. The Ghanaian-British artist had his first solo release on Theo Parrish’s label, Sound Signature. The title track, ‘Flowers’ won ‘Track of the Year’ at Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Awards 2013.
But ʻFlowersʼ was just the start for this reluctant star. The ʻSpecialʼ EP sees him release 3 more songs of eagerly awaited soul music, equally heaven- sent. And plenty more eyes and ears are following now. ‘Special’ EP came out Jan 27th 2014 through Which Way Records.
