INXS founding member and bassist Garry Beers, may have sold over 50 million in worldwide album sales with that band but isn’t resting on past laurels, and has formed AshenMoon.
The band grew out of songwriting sessions between Beers in his own garage out in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles with rock singer Toby Rand and guitarist Jimmy Khoury, renowned for his work as a film and television composer and with performers such as Beth Hart.
UK pianist Kenny Dickenson (KT Tunstall, Billy Bragg etc.) and Australian drummer Sebastian Gregory (The Veronicas) were added to the creative mix, creating a fusion of 70s, new wave and modern rock n roll.
The result became a band, AshenMoon, with an album due to be released by Golden Robot Records, co-produced by Beers and Rand, mixed by Grammy award winner David Reitzas and mastered by Howie Weinberg (Jeff Buckley).
“Not since my days with INXS have I felt more connected to music,” said Beers. “We made this record from the heart and pay homage to all the great rock bands and artists that have inspired us to devote our lives to music.”
