This morning, rising indie pop-rock artist Harrison Ash released his cover of “Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked”. After the explosive success of several clips of Harrison singing the song on TikTok, Harrison faced immense pressure from fans to release his version on streaming platforms, and he delivered. The viral TikToks (linked here and here) have already captured the attention of over 12 million listeners from around the world and have propelled Harrison to 2.2 million likes and 54K followers virtually overnight.
Ash’s wildly seductive and raw take on “Ain’t No Rest For The Wicked” will stop you in your tracks. “I was blown away from the massive response and interaction from the viral TikToks”, said Harrison. The first huge TikTok went viral in late October and again earlier in November, drawing countless pleas for an official DSP release. Driven by his raspy vocals, revved up guitars, and gritty percussion, Ash shines a new light on this classic hit.

About Harrison Ash
For this Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter, music has always been his primary focus. If Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig were to cross paths with early work from Phoenix, the vibes of Spoon, and a dash of vocals from the Arctic Monkeys, it might paint a picture of Harrison Ash’s sound.
His upcoming project required narrowing down the over 75 songs that had been written to just ten. Recorded partially in Studio G in Brooklyn and Silent Partner in Philadelphia, his latest music is produced by Nick Krill (The War on Drugs, Dr. Dog, Generationals) and includes touches from names like Zach Jones (Elle King, Sting) and Russ Flynn (X Ambassadors).
Embracing this time of returning to live shows, the indie-pop rock guitarist and vocalist is ready to continue connecting with audiences in person, and his forthcoming record is the proper introduction he’s been working towards. Full of romance, introspection, and self-analysis, “In the Mood” and the new music to come show that Ash is the kind of self-aware writer and artist who can create a body of work that’s as comforting as it is sonically cohesive.
