As the City Rumbles Underneath hit the music scene in late 2012 with a unique blend of modern heavy beats and swirling, shoegaze like guitars and synths. The band currently consists of Cat Forsley and Ashton Price, who each bring a different set of expertise to the project.
As an artist, Cat Forsley has traveled the world using her art, poetry and music to spread a message of peace and love. Ashton is a successful music producer and writer who has worked with various artists, such as Brownman (National Jazz Award Winner), Kataklysm (Nuclear Blast) and The Airplane Boys (Stampede Management) at his studio, Morph Productions. Recently, Ashton mixed the Cadence Weapon album which was shortlisted for the Polaris prize.
Cat and Ashton started the project by releasing singles and videos throughout 2013, followed with an EP released early 2014. One highlight for them was having one of their songs licensed to Degrassi-Next Generation, a popular Canadian television that is aired internationally. They have also been featured in many music blogs (I Think I Love It, The Daily Album, Love Music Magazine), all with favourable reviews.
Moving forward, the band will continue to create new songs and videos while increasing their web presence. After the success that was achieved with their Degrassi license, they are also actively looking for more licensing opportunities.
Their current EP “Flowers from the Stars” is available as a free download on BandCamp here:
