Gwyn Ashton feat. Robbie Blunt - 'Fortunate Kind'

The video of Fab Tone Records latest Gwyn Ashton single Fortunate Kind is being exclusively premiered on the Classic Rock website and we'd like you all to share this around and if you like it, please purchase the track from iTunes, Amazon etc.

The third single from Welsh / Australian songwriter, axesmith Gwyn Ashton’s Radiogram album sees a collaboration with ex Robert Plant, Clannad, Bronco and Silverhead guitarist Robbie Blunt. Together they intertwine beautifully sculptured solos with Ashton on Weissenborn lap slide guitar and Blunt on lead duties. Ashton lured the composer of ‘Big Log’ out of hiatus, after his stints with artists such as Tom Petty and Deborah Bonham, with a track that he couldn’t resist. Magnum's Mark Stanway supplies organ to the track with ex UB40 and Culture Club singer Mo Birch on backing vocals.

Penned on a train journey across Germany on a newly-purchased guitar bought in a local music store, Fortunate Kind is a rootsy, Americana-styled track, lamenting Ashton's homeland of Australia and was filmed in the middle of the Worcestershire floods in Feb 2014. A slight departure from Ashton's harder blues, it's a soulful, haunting ballad that no country, blues and rock music fan should pass up.
