ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In 2015, after a spell as the touring bass player for seminal chamber-pop band Cardinal, Corin Ashley set about recording the follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2013 album New Lion Terraces. Things were going along just swimmingly at Q Division studios in Boston, with an inspiring collaboration with Tanya Donelly (Throwing Muses, Breeders, Belly) called "Wind Up Boy," and quick progress on a half dozen additional tunes. Corin took occasional breaks from work on the album, flying to Cardiff, Wales to play bass and sing on Martin Carr's (ex- Boo Radleys) album The Breaks, and performing a few shows opening for a diverse set of artists (Fitz & The Tantrums, Frank Turner, Robyn Hitchcock and, on one storied summer evening, Foreigner and Styx). He ended 2015 by opening a sold-out hometown show for one of his lifelong musical heroes, Dave Davies of The Kinks, who had bounced back to recording and touring after a 2004 stroke.

In January of 2016, Corin himself suffered a stroke of the right parietal lobe that left him in the hospital for an extended stay, unable to move the fingers on his left hand and with a paralyzed vocal cord. A professional, working musician, Corin suddenly found himself contemplating a very dark future. As luck would have it, the neurologist on call at Beth Israel Hospital the night Corin was admitted was Dr. Gottfried Schlaug, a conservatory-trained organist who had made a 20 year study of the ways in which musicians recover from brain injuries. With Dr. Schalug's guidance, Corin embarked on what would amount to more than nine months of physical therapy, speech therapy, and vocal therapy, as he eventually re-learned to play guitar and sing, finally taking the stage again at the end of 2016. His new album Broken Biscuits stands as a flag, firmly planted to guide future explorers who someday may find themselves navigating this difficult terrain.
