Greyscale Records is the brainchild of Ash Hull and Joshua Merriel, born from the idea of creating a record label that amalgamates the attitude of a DIY label, with the reach and push of a major one. Greyscale is searching for artists who aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty, who believe in their music, and know that hard work pays off.
Ash started running local Melbourne All Age shows six years ago at the age of 15 while studying at school. This has involved to running AA festivals such as Break The Ice & Invasion Fest, as well as booking regular shows at Arrow On Swanston. Since then Ash has started booking bands such as Void Of Vision, Harbours, Deez nuts to name a few and recently started managing Polaris while working full time at Destroy All Lines for the last 4 years in the touring department. Now 22 year’s old, things aren’t slowing down with his latest venture at Greyscale Records.
Joshua started his music career at the age of 13, on the community radio station Street FM doing an early Sunday morning radio show. When Street FM wrapped up, he moved on to SYN FM, where he spent 5 years as the Punk/Metal Genre Night co-ordinator, as well as co-hosting the long running show Works In Theory. At the same time Josh was heavily involved in the live music scene around Melbourne, helping run shows and nights at the Camberwell Civic Centre, Stonecutters, St. Ambrose Hall, Metro Nightclub, and several other locations. Currently Josh is the host of triple j’s punk/hardcore show Short.Fast.Loud.
