From the Mind of Will Ash

Will Ash

Creator, Writer, Producer

Ever since I was a kid picking up a guitar, I knew how important sound was to me and the effect that music can have on a person. I have a naturally competitive perseverance inside of me that pushes me to better myself and constantly practice. Since the age of 9 I've been alone in my room, constantly practicing and studying music and that little hobby I developed has guided my life in ways I never would've imagined. As a creator, I love that I can take the skills I've been developing and add my own take on the world inside of it - I get to use my politics, my nerdy video game fantasy side, my emotion and my outlook to shape the project I'm working on. More recently, as a teacher teaching all ages music lessons, I'm constantly reminded that my journey is never over, as I watch many others' begin.

Just like anyone else, I've been through the struggle of people telling me I'm not good enough. I've been told that I'll never make it in music, that I'll never make any money, that my songs aren't worth it. Something inside me knows to keep going, and I believe that is 'purpose'. If I didn't listen to that voice, I never would've put together, booked, marketed, and gone on my own western U.S. tour for the band's debut album, The Wicked King. I never would've released an original EP, full album LP, and over 5 singles in the span of 3 years, and I never would've gone on to garner over 150,000 streams across YouTube, Spotify, Apple Music, and more. It's that drive that's either going to push me to success or insanity. 

At the end of the day, I'm still a 9 year old kid from Coralville, Iowa strumming my first chords and gritting through the pain. I came from a small town and value those ideals, and I try and work in this industry with a big heart and an open mind. I've met a lot of fantastic people and working with them has been incredible. If you're out there and you have a dream like I did: don't give up, and don't let anyone tell you "no". Not everyone understands what you're trying to accomplish and not everyone is going to believe in it. All that matters is that you do, and that you treat everyone else kindly in your pursuit. I hope you enjoy my project "The Crown Remnant" and everything else I have to offer.

from the mind of Will Ash

THE CROWN REMNANT from the mind of Will Ash is an independent metal project noted for its focus on creativity, melody, heavy riffs, and dynamic songs. It released a 6 track EP and 7 track LP original album "The Wicked King" (2017-2019) which has been reviewed and discussed by Metal Temple, Gear Gods, Rock Revolt, Metal Insider, Pure Grain Audio, and more with a full music video feature on Alternative Press.


Later in 2019, the group released a new single "The Other Side" which became their top single on Spotify. "The Other Side" was quickly surpassed in 2020 by the project's most popular singles to date, "Storm's Edge" and later "The Fall" - off the new album, THE END OF DAYS. The project's albums and singles have garnered over 150,000 streams across Spotify, YouTube, Pandora, Amazon, Google, Itunes, and more.


The Crown Remnant was created by Will Ash and a co-writer in late 2016, with Will Ash taking over the project fully in early 2019 after his success as the lead writer and designer of "The Wicked King". Working with different players throughout, the core project is written, produced, and recorded by Will Ash.
