SlapperCast 98: “Songs are where it’s at” — A conversation with Ash Soan

This week we have a stunning conversation with the mighty Ash Soan—speaking to us from his recording studio all the way over in Norfolk, UK.

Ash is a brilliant drummer, recording and touring musician with a resumé a mile long and loads of amazing stories to tell, of which you’ll hear plenty in this episode (Sinéad O’Connor, Van Morrison, Del Amitri, Adele, Rick Wakeman, Terry Reid, et al). We also talk about how the pandemic has affected touring musicians and road crew, and what things might be like when we’re able to resume business as usual. But the main focus of this conversation turned out to be the underappreciated art of “playing for the song”.
