Ash Grunwald Mojo album cover“Sometimes I don’t know where this dirty road’s taking me,” Ash Grunwald sings on his 12th album, his first for Michael Gudinski’s Bloodlines label.

The Melbourne bluesman has been nominated for Best Blues and Roots Album five times at the ARIA Awards. On each occasion he’s gone home emptyhanded – but the aptly titled Mojo could change his luck.

The record showcases an all-star cast, including Kasey Chambers, The Teskey Brothers, Mahalia Barnes, Joe Bonamassa, Ian Collard, The Fabulous Thunderbirds’ Kim Wilson, and The Cat Empire’s Harry James Angus. But Grunwald’s deep, soulful tone is the star of the show.

Mojo by Ash Grunwald is out August 30 via Bloodlines.
