Charlie Ash


Wellington based electro-synth rockers Charlie Ash were formed around the Christchurch-grown duo of bassist/keytar player Mailee Matthews (formerly of Maestro Cooltone and the Phantasmasies) and vocalist Rosie Rigger, and play a variety of fun, schlocky pop with a great deal of sass. Both we’re heavily involved with local radio station RDU.

The group convened when Matthews moved to Wellington in 2004, and were completed by Jean Pompey, Dave Prendergast and Benny O.
