Ash Riot - Lead Vocals, Acoustic & Electric & Bass Guitars
This Time I’ll Forgive You…Again is the full length album from Canadian singer-songwriter Ash Riot. Born and raised in Vancouver BC, Ash has been immersed within the culture and diversity in the deep urban playground of the Pacific North West. "This Time I’ll Forgive You…Again" is the story of a 21 year-old artist with true rock ‘n roll spirit whose poetic lyrics could stitch the wounds of any hungry soul, rising from one experience to another, whether it be painful, beautiful, pensive or observant.
Ash has a way of holding the audience in the palms of her hands. With each song that she punches through the speakers, she’s sure to keep them within her grasp. From the true punk rock spirit that she unleashes, to the old school rock n’ roll that’s constantly sifting through her veins, she’s setting the audience on fire with her energy and originality.
Recently, she released her new record "This Time I’ll Forgive You…Again", which contains current single "Heroin Halo". The single has been released to campus and rock radio across Canada. The second single "Glamour Glamour" is set to be released later this spring, 2006.
This Time I'll Forgive You...Again, produced, mixed and recorded by Rick Boulter (Cosmic Pig Studios), takes on an emotion of it’s own with each new heart that bleeds through the audio roller coaster. One song after another, it becomes more apparent that having a broken heart is just as good as having revenge through artistic flair. Whether it be to a lover, to a nation, or to herself, there isn’t a book of emotion left unread or a pile of secrets left unturned.
Some of the artists Ash Riot has performed with: Carole Pope, Sonia & Disappear Fear, Alix Olson, Pamela Means, Ember Swift, Betty (L Word), Hector, Yvette, Fruit (Australia), Evalyn Parry, Rae Spoon, Duvallstar, just to name a few.

ASH RIOT: This Time I'll Forgive You . . . Again (Riot Records
""If there was any doubt of the punk/pop esthetic at work here, the tattoo-parlour endorsement in the liner notes should seal it. The dozen tracks, particularly ""Heroin Halo,"" indicate a future for this woman!"" B+

Ash Riot-This Time I'll Forgive You...Again
dB Promotions & Publicity Inc.
The first single is the pop-punk track "Heroin Halo". A
standout on Ash's new CD, the track is a vicarious look at the
lives of punk-rock luminaries Sid Vicious, Kurt Cobain, and
Courtney Love. Its alluring beat and memorable lyrics delivered
with Joan Jett prowess, make for a shoe-in at rock and modern rock radio.

ASH RIOT - This Time I´ll Forgive You...Again
When you´re having a bad day it´s always cool to come home and listen to great tunes to unwind. After picking up this ´Ash Riot´ CD from my PO Box I can safely say this won't be out of my player for a while. I really like what this woman is doing and while many compare her to ´Bif Naked´ and ´Hole´ they fail to recognise this woman in her own right. Yes, Ash Riot leaves me feeling impressed and I felt at ease with her sound from the moment I heard the opening track ´Glamour Glamour´. That opening number is a great Punk Rock N Roll track - Though let´s not forget tracks like ´Heroin Halo´, ´Liar With A Black Heart´ and ´It´s Still Raining´ which are brilliant. While many 1977 Punks may not dig this style of Punk Rock it´s great to see people like Ash Riot and her band playing Rock N Roll with a bit of quality and sincerity. There´s the real deal and there are fakers - Ash Riot is the real deal. She´s one of the best artists to come out of Canada in a long time. Twelve tracks in all and there´s not one you´ll hate - Promise! (Riot) 9.5/10
