Australian blues guitarist and singer-songwriter Ash Grunwald will release his new album, Mojo, later this month on Aug. 30, and today we premiere the video for one of the record’s tracks, “Ain’t My Problem,” a ripping barroom throwdown that features some help from fellow Aussie blues-rockers The Teskey Brothers.
“I’d already recorded this solo, but I thought I’d build it up for the album, hoping
that the Teskey Brothers would get involved,” Grunwald tells Relix. “I didn’t know them personally, but I’d heard that I was an influence on them when they were growing up. I was just over the moon when they said yes. I’m a huge fan—that guy has to have the best voice in Australian blues and roots. So tasty. With the song, it was my constant quest to get lyrics that are really meaningful. Songs often start from just one lyric. I was talking to a friend about a breakup, and I just said, ‘It’s not your problem anymore.'”
Check out the video below. Grunwald will play a show at New York’s Rockwood Music Hall next month on Sept. 23 before heading back to Australia for a run of dates in October. See his full tour schedule here.
