Ashton Nyte


Ashton Nyte is a South African singer, songwriter, producer, composer and front man of the South African Gothic rock band The Awakening. Nyte has released five solo albums both as Ashton Nyte and Ashton Nyte and the Accused in addition to his numerous releases as The Awakening. He is considered to be the pioneer of Gothic rock in South Africa, [1] and has been described as something of a music genius[2] for his typical method of composing, playing and recording each instrument himself on most of his releases. Nyte is widely known in South Africa for his chart-topping cover of Simon and Garfunkel's The Sounds of Silence and later single Maree. His signature style combines baritone vocals akin to David Bowie and Peter Steele, with instrumentation that ranges from Americana to classic Gothic rock and even lo-fi indie rock. Themes of George Orwell's 1984 often infiltrate Nyte's work, along with numerous Christian references. Read more on Last.fm.
