A 1970s comedy duo seems an unlikely inspiration for a 22-year-old singer-songwriter, but, for Ashleigh Wood, Morecambe & Wise are close to her heart. Ashleigh hails from Morecambe, in Lancashire, and now she has paid tribute to the hometown of legendary comic Eric by releasing a cover of the track made famous by the duo.
Ashleigh is already well-known in the North West – she has gained approval from BBC Lancashire’s John ‘Gilly’ Gilmore, and performed at the local football clubs as well as events festivals in the area – and is set to capture the hearts of the rest of the country.
The song has since been featured on national radio and featured on adverts from the likes of Cadbury, Nescafe and P&O Cruises. ‘Bring Me Sunshine’ is full of joy, and if someone doesn’t bring the sunshine to Ashleigh, she is sure to bring it to us.
‘Bring Me Sunshine’ will be released on August 24th.
