Toni and Ash are a glam rock band from Los Angeles, California. Toni is the lead singer, Ash is the guitarist and they’re sisters! They kindly agreed to complete a feature artist interview for Song Revelation. Read on to discover they’re unique yet catchy rock tunes, what current artists they’d love to collaborate with and what they’re currently working on.
Q: If you could use a tagline of less than 20 words to describe your music and who you are what would it be?
Girls, Glam, and Guitars—Listen and you are OURS
Q: How was 2010 for you?
Peachy! We released our debut album Irreversible Territory, filmed two music videos (“Covert Undercover” and “Sweet Thing”), and got an artist endorsement with Telefunken microphones.
Q: Who inspires you musically?
Q: Which modern day artists do you look up to?
N.E.R.D., Rob Thomas, Maroon 5 (Adam Levine randomly gave me a guitar from the audience at one of their concerts!) and Jet.
Q: Is there anyone you would like to collaborate or gig with?
Q: What is your creative process for creating a track?
We are sisters, so it is not pretty. And, yes, chocolate fixes second verse dilemmas as well as lousy lyrics.
Q: What’s more important, melody or lyrics?
Which came first—the chicken or the egg? Does that answer the question?
Q: Where are you based?
Q: What are you currently working on?
We are recording an acoustic album with acoustic versions of most of the songs from Irreversible Territory and 3 brand spanking new songs.
Q: Do you have any gigs or shows that you’d like to tell us about?
We will be rockin’ live as soon as we finish the recording process. Come see us!
Q: What do you do to relax?
We don’t get to relax anymore, but if we did, a long walk on the beach would be nice.
Q: Is there anything else you’d like to let our readers know about?
One is brunette—one is blonde. One is short—one is tall. One is dumb—one is dumber (we won’t tell you which is which). 😉
Editor’s Note: Toni and Ash are bringing glam rock enjoyment to everyone that listens to their music. Their more recent acoustic tracks show a diversity which clearly shows their musicianship. We look forward to listening to their next musical project.
