Ash Lad


Once upon a time, I made a lot of music. You can find most of it here:


I made everything with my old friend Sam Lea who is one of the most talented musician I’ve ever met.

Sam and I got our biggest break when we helped to return a lost dog to its owner in a tiny Welsh village, which then led us to a sort of medieval cult, and then to a rugby club talent show run by Keith Allen, and eventually to being offered a slot at Glastonbury.


We then announced the slot too early, making international news, entirely by accident.


A new EP

I loved being a full-time musician. It was fun building it to the point of support from Radio 1, NME, the Guardian, getting booked for festivals like Glastonbury and Latitude, and having a band of musicians far more talented than me.

But ultimately, I decided it was time to return to science, climate and nature.

I don't spend much time making music now... but I do have a cheeky EP that's nearly finished. I’ve been trying to convince Sam to finish the production with me since 2017! One day...

For now, here's the last 35 seconds of a new song called Indonesia.

Music I like

If you’d like to listen to some of my favourite songs, I’ve made a playlist on Spotify called Really Good Music Songs.


It’s got a bit of everything I’ve ever liked, from “Everybody Wants To Be A Cat” through to Four Tet and a load of Irish folk music.


My favourite artist on there is Beatenberg / Matthew Field. If all was just and right in the world, Matthew Field would be a household name!
