Roan Ash is a multi-talented singer-songwriter from Pretoria, South Africa with a modern soul- pop-country style.
In February 2015, Roan recorded and released his debut album, The Traveller, independently at this exact theatre. About 5 years later he can look back and acknowledge the mountains he climbed & share the stories off this journey with you.
In 2016, Inhoud Huis Musiek, a boutique Afrikaans Indie record label, fell in love with Roan’s talent and signed him instantly.
Early 2018, Roan’s 7 track EP was released titled, Whiskey To My Soul that has achieved Platinum status. Apple Music placed Roan’s song in other territories and Apple Music Nashville chose Roan to be part of the Nationwide Country Music Campaign. Only 5 artists were chosen globally.
Roan’s songs featured on the A-List Country Music Playlist, which is one of the top 5 playlists in the world.
Roan’s streams has reached the 30 million mark worldwide to date and still climbing and If I Ever Saw Heaven and Whiskey to My Soul reached number one on several South African radio stations, both these music videos reached over a million streams on YouTube. His EP reached Platinum status in less than a year.
Roan is nominated for a SAMA award 2019 in the category best Adult Contemporary album of the year. Roan also won the ‘Bokkie’-award 2019 for the title National Artist of the Year.
Roan’s music received an overwhelming response worldwide. WME in Nashville created opportunities for international ventures. He was invited to perform at the CMA’s (Country Music Association Fest) in June 2019 and early 2020 Roan went back to yet another opportunity in Nashville Tennessee.
As excited as we are to welcome Roan back to the Atterbury Theatre, we are also looking forward to hear where his Music is taking him next.
