White Ascot

The popular soul band White Ascot was formed at The Conservatory of Music in Tromsø in 2013. The four young music students quickly established their own musical universe with clear references to R'n'B and Soul. In recent years, the band has taken great steps and they have now released an EP, recorded several music videos and established themselves as a popular band with a distinctive sound. Earlier this year they played at Bodø Jazz Open, Chris Festival and Sørøyrocken. The debut album will be released next year. This is really one of Tromsø's most promising bands!
