Bio: Ashley Newall & The Raging Suburbanites

Ashley Newall & The Raging Suburbanites formed in 1998 under the name Ashley Newall Band, and they've just released a “best-of/best-yet” double album called "Greatest Misses"! And a brand new single ("Hey Earthling") and music video also accompany that release! They have four CD's to their credit, the most recent being 2011's "Light the Lamp". Following a 2-year hiatus where Ashley concentrated on curating & emceeing live concerts (presenting over 200 shows in 2014, & emceeing nearly 1/2 of those), the band has re-formed in 2015!
The Raging Suburbanites feature Jack MacGregor on drums, Neil Gerster on bass & keys, Adam Fogo on bass & electric viola da gamba, & Brendan Allistone on lead guitar. Previous concert venues played include Zaphod Beeblebrox, Irene's Pub, & Bluesfest (in Ottawa), and Clinton's, C'est What, & The Rivoli (in Toronto). Their sound could only be described as eclectic; straddling everything from pop-rock to folk to reggae to latin & beyond.
