Ashleigh Dallas is a local of the Tamworth, NSW/Gomeroi country area, a third-generation musician who has been creating music since childhood, and a multiple Golden Guitar winner. So it’s tempting to call her an institution, except that label makes her sound staid and static, and Dallas is anything but. She has released several singles over the past few months, including ‘Lottery’ and her latest, ‘Dancing in the Kitchen’. Like the songs from her albums, starting with Dancing with a Ghost in 2014, they are the product of an artist who is inquisitive about life and passionate about creating the best music she can because she has never settled for anything less. Still, she is something of an institution so it was an honour to talk to her recently as well as a great pleasure.
