ASHTON LANE CONFIRM OCTOBER RELEASE FOR NEW SINGLE & EUROPEAN TOUR DATES

August 31, 2017

Glasgow-based country duo Ashton Lane have confirmed the release of their latest single ‘Breathe You In’, out on 27th October 2017, and a run of European tour dates starting with Millport Country Festival this weekend.

Co-written by the duo – Esther & Tim O’Connor – with James Duffin & Jacqueline Tessier, the new song tells of a longing to get out of our busy cities and lives, head for the hills and those wide open spaces where we can breathe a little deeper… In the words of lead singer Esther O’Connor: “I love living in Scotland. Tim and I are based in the heart of the city yet a short road trip north of Glasgow and we’re in the expanse of lochs, mountains, rivers and forest. Crunching along a pebble beach with the wind stinging my face reminds me I’m alive and it’s good to be!”

The band have enjoyed a great summer festival season, from small rural events like Fynefest in the Scottish highlands and country music weekend Buckle and Boots, to the Hard Rock stage at this year’s Isle of Wight. Now gearing up to play the forthcoming Millport Country festival alongside The Shires, Ward Thomas and Mark Chesnutt, before heading to Austria and Bavaria later in the year. Esther said “We travel with the whole family, hire a splitter and cover a lot of miles in 3 weeks on the road. Over the last couple of years we have gigged and road tripped around Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Germany. All stunning places to visit as we play and share our music.”
