The latest blog is up and ready for you at:

The new blog is about my history with the Fender Rhodes piano.  This is part one of two.  It’s the most detailed blog yet.  It includes a fantastic story (literally), mp3s of classic Rhodes sounds (yes, I recorded them), and incriminating photos from the 1970s (that’s not hair, that’s a shrub).
As always, please subscribe while you’re there.  It helps, thanks.
In honor of the Rhodes electric piano and it’s jazz heritage my special merch offer for August is:
Arc of the Circle (improv music with Jeff Coffin, Marc Ribot, Derrek Phillips)
Love Press Ex-Curio (jazz w/Ravi Coltrane, James Genus, Kurt Rosenwinkel)

Both CDs for only 10 dollars.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO is send a PayPal payment to cwilliamashworth@mac.com.  Any questions?  Send email to the same address. Free shipping.

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

My Epic performing their last final show before COVID-19

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
