Whitherward is the partnership between singer-songwriters Ashley E. Norton and Edward A. Williams. Founded in Nashville in December of 2013, the duo has built a catalog of varied, intricate songs that explore the effects of the human condition. Beginning their career together in the writer's rounds of Nashville, Ash and Ed grew into a full-time touring duo with a move out west to Denver in late 2014.
After a stint along the I-25 corridor, the pair decided to hit the road and not look back, embarking on several multi-week tours across the country, through cities such as San Diego, Phoenix, San Francisco, Seattle, Omaha, St. Louis, and many, many more. Their hard-hitting lyrical style, supported by thunderous vocals and guitars, bring a new dimension to the indie folk world.
Hand Of Fate
A light, but driving song, continuously marching the listener against the hand of fate that guides our lives.
The Night I Fell For You
The first single from our upcoming album, The Night I Fell For You tells an all-too-familiar story.
A dreamy, nautical-themed opening for the album of the same name.
Sleeping With A Stranger
When the person you thought you knew turns out to be a total stranger.
Be careful not to get bitten...
Summon the music monster...if you dare.
Ghosts Of Germantown
A single from the upcoming new EP from Whitherward!

I was talking about 'Teeth'.

This is my favourite of all the tracks you have here. The dark side to it and the voice seeming to find a new freedom with the seductive guitar seem to me to let loose a talent that is subdued in other places. This builds like a creeping menace slipping out of the darkness, hesitates, then springs.

Hey there sweet Ashley and groovy Edward! I can't begin to tell you how special to me that Wednesday 9/27/17 and Thursday 9/28/17 was and always shall be. Yes I can, I already have; in person in the hotel, in the Hyundai, in the restaurant, outside, in the Tavern, via e-mail, and Facebook, both public and private. And now here on your artist page in IMP. And this is just the tip of the iceberg. You both now occupy a very large hall in my heart that is forever haunted by you! I LOVE YOU both so much that it almost hurts. But it would hurt so good. Your Whitherward Music Monster Michael. WWMM Michael (2 heart emojis)
