ASHBY - "Fragmenta"
Ashby is a progressive rock quintet from Germany. Since its foundation in summer of 2011, the band can proudly look back and be proud of what they accomplished up to now. On the way to the first performance of the band, Frank Bornemann (Leader of Eloy and producer of Guano Apes) as well as Patrick Sepke were very impressed by the sound of the young band. After a six month period writing and composing, Ashby presents their first EP entitled: "A Question Never Heard" (05/2013), which was produced at the legendary Horus Sound Studio in Hannover, Germany. Many good responses and feedback came from online and printed magazines such as (Eclipsed & Rocktimes). In their beginning, the band played smaller gigs,but that would be for just a very short period of time. Not long after, the band were invited to play bigger menus and popular festivals such as "Hells Kitchen Fest", "Essen Original" (with Powerwolf) and "Eier mit Speck Festival" in Viersen (including Knorkator). Sabina Moser (Vocalist of the Band), had a very sucessful year in 2014 which drew much attention to her and the band, like the German Casting Show (The Voice of Germany) and with reason.
