'Ash & Bloom' official selection of TOIFF 2016

Toronto, CA – JUNO performers, Ash & Bloom, and their music video, 'Heaven Is A Ghost Town', is an official selection of the Toronto 2016 TOIndie Film Festival.

Ash & Bloom are a duo from Hamilton, Ontario. They’ve been collaborating together for over 10 years but just released their first EP of original work. The instrumentation is very organic with lots of earthy percussion and acoustic sounds without specific overpowering elements. They imply that you, the listener, can join in the song at any point, as it is near impossible not to be humming by the end of “Let the Storm Come.” Thematically, their songs offer just the right mixture of meaning yet ambiguity so that listeners can add their own interpretation of the song.


Ash & Bloom ask the questions but don’t try to answer them in 'Heaven Is A Ghost Town.' Their humorous animated music video for this song includes appearances from Bono, Oprah, Ellen, Ghandi, and Mother Teresa.

The mission of the Toronto Independent Film Festival is to screen the best of low-budget independent film from around the world. The Toronto Indie is a celebration of talented filmmakers working on shoestring budgets.

The Toronto Indie runs every September and offers a fantastic opportunity for undiscovered filmmakers to showcase their achievements in a space where all the key players of the film industry have gathered.
