Homegrown in the suburbs of Washington DC, Ache Harvest is an Alternative Rock Band like no other. Vocalist Carly Ratcliffe, drummer Ben Fremin, bassist Matthew Werfel, and guitarist/producer Matthew Aasen display high-level talent and devotion to the craft. Their mature musicianship and songwriting are evident in every song they perform. 

With a sound that combines young, pop-rock energy with a dramatic and powerful arena-ready sound, Ache Harvest breathes a modern take on a classic style. Ache Harvest fuses influences such as Arctic Monkeys, Foo Fighters, and Evanescence into a unique and distinguishable world of sound. Driving drums that can be described as a combination of Travis Barker and Chad Smith, bluesy guitar licks with foundation-building chords, tasteful bass that always provides the deep glue to the track, and powerful yet expressive vocals are the key elements to Ache Harvest’s sound.

Ache Harvest's singer, Carly Ratcliffe, is a talented vocalist whose vocals have been heard at large venues, such as the Audi Field for a D.C. United game, the Hyatt Government IT Sales summit, and the BRING IT NoVa competition, where she and her acapella group placed 3rd. Ache Harvest’s guitarist is Matthew Aasen, a passionate player, songwriter, and producer. He has worked with many local artists both in performance and in the studio. Matthew Werfel, the bassist, is an accomplished musician and songwriter, who co-founded Ache Harvest, and has written many of their well known songs. Ben Fremin is an extremely talented and dedicated drummer, and has performed at the Berklee College of Music in addition to releasing music of his own and building a large Instagram following. 

Their background of live music performance serves as the groundwork for their studio sound and process. Iterating songs based on stage experience is a crucial part of Ache Harvest’s songwriting process. Ache Harvest’s originals always stand out; expect to be impressed when they hit the stage.
