Music, Comedy and Energy
Ashley Carruthers is an Australian born pianist and entertainer. Specialising in high energy rock and roll piano like no other with comedy throughout.
"Ashley frankly beggars belief...his pianism from stride to jazz-inflected crescendos resembling Errol Garner on acid...phenomenal technique, down to feet on the piano, lying on the upright with hands jabbing behind him, or more simply flicking glissandos back and forth through explosive Bartok-like percussions. Charles Valentin Alkan, the pianist Liszt feared. Carruthers could blast him with Gusto...a tour-de-force." (Fringereview UK).
Ashley played the lead role of legendary piano rocker Jerry Lee Lewis in the UK and Ireland tour of the Broadway and West End Smash hit musical "Million Dollar Quartet" to packed houses and rave reviews.
Ashley was born and raised in Newcastle Australia and currently resides in Florida USA.
Currently Ashley can be found dividing his time between performing in the USA, UK and regularly headlining on the world's top cruise lines.
