Australia's own Rock/Roots larrikin, Asa Broomhall has given us his 5th independent album, ‘Jangle House.’ Recorded in an iconic old Guitar Shop in Brisbane over the Easter 2011 break, ‘Jangle House’ was truly a labour of love. Recording in a historically musical place was just one reason for creating this album. Asa's brother's house, where previous albums had been recorded/mixed and where the studio was located, was consumed by the January 2011 floods, and was subsequently condemned and demolished. Furthermore the album was mixed and overdubs were laid down in a number of temporary home studios. Combine this with the sound of the Guitar Shop that can only be described as an old house full of guitars, you start to get a sense for the album and its title; ‘Jangle House.’
Despite the numerous recording and mixing environments, ‘Jangle House’ retains the polish of modern albums with the added charm of traditional releases recorded with a 'live' feel. This album began as a challenge and became a triumph with 10 full band tracks of Rock/Folk and Blues songs and a version of Marley's classic, ‘Waiting in Vain.’
On stage, Asa's powerful guitar driven songs and dynamic live show has taken him from clubs and festivals all over Australia to touring with national and international artists and regularly performing in the UK, USA and Canada. And with 5 independent and self-produced releases and 12 years of shows under his belt, Asa's dedication to his music and his live show is obvious.
If you fancy Rock, Folk and Blues with a dose of mischief, make sure you hear Asa's music and experience one of Australia’s best independent artists, whether it be Solo Acoustic or fronting his Powerful Trio, the Asa Broomhall Band.
