Koley and Deschambault met in 2004. The band has stated that Phil was looking for a singer that could complement his style of songwriting, and had immediate chemistry with Koley when the two were introduced to one another by a mutual acquaintance. Glen Willows, founder of Burning Circus Management, signed Ash Koley (the band) to his management company and began to distribute some rough demos of the band, resulting in significant interest from several North American and European publishers. The demos also received interest from Nettwerk Records CEO Terry McBride, who signed the duo in 2009.
