"Every time I got in the car with my parents, it always seemed to come on the radio."
Following his spring US tour, Ashworth will embark on a summer stateside jaunt during which he will be joined onstage by San Diego's the Donkeys. He plans on recording his next full-length this fall, and some of the songs now being rehearsed with the band will probably make it on to the album.
Until then, one can only hope Ashworth will find friends among his listeners and will always have a shoulder to lean on. *
