"Remarkable talents with extraordinary diligence and attention to detail. I confidently recommend them!"

- Jason Gileno, Artistic Director of The Orange Lounge


Ash & Bloom is an award-winning Canadian folk pop duo, from Hamilton, Ontario. They are signed to Toronto label and management company JAD Media Inc., a division of The Orange Lounge Recording Company™ - one of North America's premiere boutique recording studios. The studio has featured a who’s who of contemporary artists since its opening in 2004.


Hottake Media™, along with the incredibly talented animator and friend, Spongemeat, worked closely alongside the record label to execute Ash & Bloom's already-established vision for their main single, "Heaven Is A Ghost Town," off their self-titled EP. Our work included the following: 

  • Production Management

  • 2D Background & Character Design

  • Storyboarding & Animatics

  • 2D Flash Animation

  • Editing / Camera Motion


Ash & Bloom’s debut full-length album was released across North America, Australia and New Zealand. The song has garnered positive press across the globe and has received extensive play on CBC and MUCHMusic. It was featured at the Toronto Short Film Festival in 2015.


We're always looking for new partnerships and collaborations. Let's work together!
