Brothers Conor and Ryan Ashe discovered the magical and rad ways of rock n roll music at the age of 12. Through the mystical spirals of their musical journey, they picked up a multitude of sonic influences ranging from classical to jam, psychedelic to Americana, prog to alternative rock. It was then that the lightning bolt struck, and they had an epiphany. Music was their calling. And they were going to answer one way or another.
They decided that the purpose of their band, Common Allies, would be to bridge the gap, not only among people of all kinds, but among music of all genres as well; ultimate inclusiveness. These brothers never gave up on their dream to pursue their passion. With such a degree of diligence and drive, they have landed several great opportunities and worked with some of the finest musicians in the business.
Their vocal precision and harmonic mastery procured them a gig covering for Art Garfunkel in Chicago when a blizzard grounded him in his hometown of New York City. Their eclectic knowledge and appreciation of the psychedelic 60’s awarded them an opening slot as a four-piece rock band for the legendary Jefferson Starship. They tackled the scene in Chicago then shipped their ambitions half way across the country to the rough and tumble entertainment capital of Los Angeles.
Although they’ve gained tons of experience, their journey is just beginning. Keep up with them and join the Alliance! They’d love to meet you on the run sometime!
