Fremont John

Fremont John Ashton's rich musical background comes from almost 20 years of classical piano training and nearly as many years on trombone.

Upon completion of his "formal schooling", Fremont John went on the road playing lead guitar, keyboards and singing with rock band, InnerVision. The group toured the Midwest and surrounding areas for several years playing large college bars and opening concerts for Rush, Iron Butterfly and Styx. InnerVision was under the management of Paul Stanley from Detroit, who also promoted acts, such as Kiss, Aerosmith, George Carlin, Fleetwood Mac, REO Speedwagon and many others.

Marriage and family then prompted the "age of reason and responsibility". He sporadically spent his weekends gigging and writing music while juggling a banking career and later a career in the environmental industry. However . . . you can't extract music from the soul of a true musician, and Fremont John is a true musician.

Fast-forward to the 1990s. Fremont John and InnerVision drummer Michael Carden teamed up again and formed the band Alias. With Fremont John out front on electric guitar and keyboards, Alias became the hottest classic rock band along the West Michigan Coast. While playing a regular schedule with the band for many years, Fremont John also began performing solo with acoustic guitar. . . .

The rest of the story is an ongoing trip up-hill. Fremont John sold his business in 1999, and moved to Key West, Florida, to revive a sorely missed full time music career. He independently released a long overdue first CD entitled, "Acoustic Thunder" which consists of eight original songs and four cover tunes. He quickly became a regular solo performer at many bar and restaurant venues throughout the Florida Keys.
