ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Multi-instrumentalist John Ashfield has been writing and playing music since his early teens. His influences started at home, with his father being an accomplished Barbershop Quartet singer. Natually John looked to the younger and more "happening" version of Barbershop and discovered The Osmonds, who had begun as a Barbershop group, later to become Bubblegum superstars. This began John's foray into sunny Pop/Bubblegum music. He explored other popular music for that time (early 1970's), delving in Wings, Beatles, The Partridge Family, Bobby Sherman, The 5th Dimension and anything else that was on his AM radio while summering at the Jersey shore.
In high school he discovered he had an amazing voice and put it to good use in school musicals. He played in bands and continued to write. He moved onto college, winning a four year music scholarship and playing in more bands, varying instruments from keyboards to guitar to bass. He graduated college and began his "day job" as an elementary school music teacher, which he loves and still keeps. His current band, The Bobbleheads (www.thebobbleheads.com), has been getting some recognition in power pop music circles as the nicest, most fun group around. His teaching job and musical influences often overlap with his solo material having innocence, yet maturity while he teaches his students to play "Light and Day", by the Polyphonic Spree, "Atomic" by Blondie and "Rock aroud the Clock", by Bill Haley.
John Ashfield currently resides in San Francisco, CA

Daddy Todd

A Power Pop Masterpiece
Absolutely wonderful. John packs his songs with unforgettable hooks, clever lyrics and sparkly production. A great package, and one of the best CDs of 2005.

This CD makes you feel good! You gotta love it!
This CD is happy, fun, and rocks too! John's voice sounds as great as ever and the music is solid. Anytime you need a picker-upper, put this cd in and have fun! Beware it may cause short of breath and soreness of the limbs to those susceptible to excessive dancing!

big enough hooks to catch a Bear, er, fish.
These songs are catchy and brisk and full of enough hooks to catch a Bear, er, fish. The big furry offspring of Partridge Family and Free Design, though I hear a bit of XTC and other jangly power pop/new wave of the 70s and 80s too.
