Warner Music Nashville has announced the signing of South African singer-songwriter Roan Ash. To celebrate the new deal, Ash's major label debut, "Holy Ground," is available now.

A seasoned country-rock poet, Ash has amassed 100m+ global streams independently. Armed with a guitar and emotionally-charged songwriting, Ash only aims for honesty and authenticity.

Ash's influences are lyrical masters like Kris Kristofferson and Don Williams, as well as Bruce Springsteen, Elton John and John Mayer. Ash released his first independent album The Traveller in 2014, followed by 2018’s Whiskey to My Soul, where he found his creative mark.

Finding a natural home for his writing in Nashville, Ash made the life-changing decision to move across the globe and begin writing with Music City’s brightest collaborators.
