Ashton Blake Joins Independent Ear

Ladies & Gentlemen we are kicking off this week with this special announcement that has been weeks in the making… We are proud to welcome indie blues-rock singer-songwriter Ashton Blake to the Independent Ear Family!



Ashton Blake started his musical journey at 10 years old. He formed his first band at 15 that also cut his first CD. At age 16 he was jamming with Louisville legends Rodney Roads (bassist for purple jesus, the hookers, and brothers of conquest) and J.Glenn (original drummer to my morning jacket). Ashton Blake later went on to be spot lighted on ”music central Tv” in front of country pop band ”Sugar Land”. Ashton Blake then left home to join a band out of Michigan called ”Scrapyard” and go on to do an east coast tour at age 19.

Ashton Blake’s music has been heard around the world in place’s like London,Berlin,Japan, and Australia. Ashton Blake finally decided to go solo for good at age 21. After putting so much effort into bands that didn’t want to work as hard as he did. That is when long time musician friend Bobby Danger introduced him to Phillip (CEO) of Independent Ear record label. Now Ashton Blake and his team are working hard to bring you the best musical experience. At this point in Ashton Blake’s career sky’s the limit.


We are excited to be welcoming Ashton to the family, his special blend of soulful blues-rock will make a great addition to our incredibly talented roster. We are prepping for the official release of his new EP “Bad Magick” that will be out late October/ early November 2014 on Independent Ear Records with some regional touring beginning into November. We want to thank our friend Bobby Danger for introducing us to Ashton!

Be on the lookout for the official realese for the new EP & show dates on their way to you soon! Make sure to stop by Ashton’s Facebook & Twitter to welcome him to the family!

Another pair of releases officially heading your way today, been really excited to share these with you & now here they are… Ladies & Gentlemen.. Enjoy!


First up we have the highly acclaimed & long awaited debut LP from Swedish, Glam Metal/ Sleaze rockers Glitzy Glow

This album was recently given a glowing review from MadCapMusicReview here is an excerpt from that review

“……. Glitzy Glow has put out an album of extraordinary measure: full of pop hooks, flippant sentiment, well-constructed metallic badassery, and slick sounding choruses. There is nothing stale or dated about this album. It’s a true testament to what happens when a band can find the right balance between sound and style, and it should only be a matter of time before their Swedish glow is radiating over American airwaves.” – MadCapMusicReview

Amazing album now available on all digital music marketplaces & coming very soon on physical Limited Edition CD!

Next up on this Two Release Tuesday is none other the the historical “Live At Toad Hall” EP from the Folk, Rock, Singer-Songwriter legend himself Danny Fox

This album was a historical one from the first lyric to the last note.. In the over 40 year history of Toad Hall books & records in Rockford, IL never before has there been an album recorded inside their store. This 3 level store takes you back in time unlike few things can nowadays from the what I can only guess is nearly 1 million vinyl records & probably over 200,000 books… it is a piece of history.

On the Saturday afternoon before Father’s Day during the summer of 2014.. Danny Fox & Ryan Block had originally set out to make a music video but instead decided to up the anty & record a live album.

This album is the epitome of what a live album should be… it not only features 6 beautiful songs & stories, but also humorous & insightful banter from the long time friends & business colleagues.

“In post production I highly contemplated removing all of the banter between Danny & myself leaving solely the beauty of his music but after doing so & then reviewing the songs again we felt that it would of lost the special touch that the rawness of the album in its original form had… truly live & mostly uncut” -Ryan Block of Independent Ear

This album is an exclusive release available only digitally & physically via our Bandcamp as well as through Toad Hall itself.. Order Online or pick up in the store!!
