Oakland-based musician Greg Ashley is coming to Cornerstone Dec. 10.

Touring Oakland musician stops at Cornerstone

Greg Ashley, formerly of Texas band The Gris Gris, is on tour behind his new LP Pictures of Saint Paul Street.

The underground musician from Oakland, CA, is stopping in the Comox Valley for a free all-ages concert at Cornerstone Café & Taphouse on Sunday, Dec. 10 at 7 p.m.

Ashley has been a fixture on the underground music scene since the late nineties while strafing eardrums as a teenager in Houston in the garage-punk band The Strate-Coats. Since then he’s proven himself not only as a songwriter, singer and guitar player in bands like The Mirrors & The Gris-Gris, but also as a producer/sound engineer via his Oakland-based Creamery Studio.

His career as a solo artist is vast and varied, spanning the gamut between fried and beautiful psychedelia, gorgeous and cathartic symphonic suites, and gentle, damaged folk music. His latest album, Pictures of Saint Paul Street is a rootsy amalgam of tortured, Cohen-esque folk tinged with the beer-soaked recklessness of a West Texas honky-tonk.

Cornerstone Café & Taphouse is located at 208 5th Street in Downtown Courtenay.
