Talking with Shoreline Dream was a complete joy. I have to start this out by saying that. As a musician myself, Ryan and Eric epitomize the namesake of a musician in the truest sense of the term. They are not out to impress anyone, they are out to connect. They don’t label their music for anyone, they leave their music up for your interpretation. As far as the music itself goes, this is how classics are made. And today we talk to both of the main components that are A Shoreline Dream, and in turn, get a glimpse into the minds behind the music. Enjoy!
Check out our review of their latest single ‘Room For The Others’, which is released July 14th, 2017. Buy links below.

Described by Malcolm Young, co-founder of AC/DC, as “the real deal”, Phil Rudd, the band’s long-term drummer, played in several Melbourne bands such as Buster Brown and The Coloured Balls before joining up with the rock giants in 1975.
Rudd powered the band to superstardom with his dogged consistency and an unshakeable backbeat on classics like ‘It’s A Long Way To The Top (If You Want To Rock ’N’ Roll)’ ‘TNT” and ‘Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap’, becoming an indelible part of AC/DC history.
To the untrained ear, Phil Rudd’s drumming may seem rudimentary, but his style and groove have earned him the adoration of generations of his peers. Rammstein’s Christoph Schneider said in the October 2010’s Modern Drummer, “AC/DC were my absolute heroes because they are simple and easy to copy, though soon you find they are not so easy to copy.” The magazine’s May 2010 issue also honored the rocker with the feature ’50 Reasons To Love Phil Rudd’.
Rudd has appeared on all but three of AC/DC’s 18 studio albums, which have sold more than 200 million copies worldwide. When the blockbusting album ‘Highway to Hell’ went multi-platinum worldwide, Rudd said he ‘‘went straight down the road to buy my first Ferrari’’ sparking a lifelong love of luxury cars. Rudd showcased eleven of his luxury cars in Christchurch, New Zealand as part of an earthquake appeal fundraiser, his current collection includes a rare 1991 Ferrari F40, a brand new Ferrari 599, two Lamborghinis, a 2010 Rolls Royce Ghost, 2011 Bentley Mulsanne and Bentley super sport, Audi R8 V10, a 2011 Aston Martin DBS and 2010 Mercedes SLS AMG. The cars have a combined worth of approximately $3m. Rudd’s airport hangar is also home to his MD 520N helicopter.
With the lavish rock star lifestyle firmly in place, Phil Rudd recorded and released his first debut album ‘Head Job’ with Kiwi musicians Allan Badger and Geoffrey Martin in 2014. The album was released via Universal Music Group in Australia & New Zealand but further promotional plans were scuppered by well publicised legal problems in New Zealand.
Rudd served an eight-month home detention sentence which thwarted the 2014 release of ‘Head Job’ but 2016 sees him determined to leave his problems in the past. He has embraced a more positive lifestyle and says his “hell-raising days are over… I see a psychiatrist once a week and I’m closer than ever to my children. I still have all my flash cars but now I want to grow chillies”.Phil Rudd has turned a corner, completely dedicating his life to the most important things in his life; family, friends, and music. He will be visiting the UK and Europe at the end of September to promote the re-release of ‘Head Job’.

Being known for being part of a famous band or group is the hopeful end result of many musicians, but to be able to top that with a stellar career in the studio as one of the premiere music producers in the industry is something that rarely happens with equal success. But we talked to one of those people who has actually accomplished both in the form of John Ashton.
John began his career as a guitarist with the Psychedelic Furs, touring stadiums and becoming a part of one of the most successful underground bands of the 1980s and continues that ride with his current band, Satellite Paridso. Then he made the switch to music producer, working with such acts as Marianne Faithfull, The Sisters of Mercy, Red Betty, and Seven Color Sky, just to name a few.
We now talk to John about his rise to creative prominence, his current projects as well as the past, present, and future.
About John Ashton
Ashton came to prominence in the early 1980s as the guitarist of the Psychedelic Furs. The band is an English group formed in 1977 by Richard and Tim Butler, Duncan Kilburn and Roger Morris, with Ashton joining in 1978. Their first album release was a hit in the UK and Europe. Their second release Talk Talk Talk placed them on the US charts. After the release of Forever Now in late 1982, Morris and Kilburn left the band, and Ashton and the Butler brothers went on to release Mirror Moves and other albums. The Psychedelic Furs went on hiatus after their 1992 tour but reformed in 2001. Since then, Ashton has joined the band on occasion for tours.
After the Psychedelic Furs went on hiatus, Ashton became a record producer and worked on a number of projects including Marianne Faithfull, The Sisters of Mercy, Red Betty, and Seven Color Sky. Ashton mixed and co-produced The Secret Post’s album From Train to Station, released in 2015, and oversaw recordings with Los Angeles’ Silence.
Ashton has also pursued a solo career and released his debut album, Satellite Paradiso, in 2014.
