The Dashboard Hula Girls is the project of Jeffrey Ashey, who conceives and writes the music for this accomplished collective of musicians that includes Bob Harris, Michael G. Ronstadt and singer Jackie Rudy. This month brings the new debut album Mr Bluebird's Travels, along with a cinematic video for the first single, Mr Bluebird. As songwriter, guitarist and lead singer for the Dashboard Hula Girls, Ashey wrote and recorded most of the album over a few months at the beginning of 2015 in New York City and Beacon NY using his signature finger-picking and love of country blues. The songs deal with themes of mystery, imagination and creativity in our lives. In this album Ashey cites influences as diverse as Pete Seeger, Susan Sontag, Gertrude Stein and Argentine writer Julio Cortázar.
Mr Bluebird’s Travels is the first album for the Dashboard Hula Girls and was released on September 1, 2015. Accompanying the debut album is the video for Mr Bluebird.
