On Friday, December 16, 2022 Two Way Street Coffee House Friday Night Concert Series presents Ashley & Simpson.
Comprised of Jennifer Ashley and Joel Simpson, Ashley & Simpson are quickly becoming folk scene favorites. This folk duo blends traditional songs and instrumentation along with beautiful vocal harmonies reminiscent of famous duos such as Ian & Silvia and The Everly Brothers. With their sophomore release “Off To Here Land,” they have pushed the art of folk to a new sound with an all-traditional track list that will delight fans new and old. Both bringing a classical perspective to their duo, Jennifer Ashley & Joel Simpson have reached a new level with incorporating elements of jazz, popular music and other modern styles in their arrangements.
Ashley & Simpson’s third album, “Hello, Mrs. Sun,” will feature all original songs and is in the final stages of production and is slated for an early 2023 release. In addition to Ashley & Simpson, the partners operate an independent record label called Randomosity Records located in Downers Grove, IL where they record, produce and teach. Joel and Jennifer were named Directors of the Two Way Street Coffee House in September 2020. The pair also enjoy volunteering at local folk festivals.
