Ashley Paul’s music is inherently intimate, adrift within a strange intermediate zone between scenery and song. Noise and textures become sentient characters within the music itself – even the playing of an instrument feels strangely confessional, and not just a functional act. In Paul’s hands, saxophone, voice, percussion, guitar and woodwinds are potent storytelling devices that manifest akin to reading a detailed novel where every gesture, thought and occurrence is captured in concise detail. When present in the room at one of Paul’s shows, time and space get warped and stretched out beyond our sensory perception. For the Rewire 2021 offline edition she’ll be performing her latest album ‘RAY’ with her new trio featuring Yoni Silver and Otto Willberg.
