Ashton Caton began learning drums in elementary and high school, and went on to develop his skills as a self-taught drum set performer. Ten years later, he has become a successful sync-licensing artist, signed to Art-List under the artist name Royal Nature. His first album Arcane was inspired by his experience surviving the 2015 Nepalese earthquake. Ashton’s upcoming album will be under the artist name He Mocks The Universe, encompassing themes such as discovering how you relate to the world, embracing personal experience, and self-awareness. Ashton’s biggest drumming influences include Darren King, S. Carey, Thom Green, and Aaron Gillespie. For the last five years Ashton has taught private drum lessons, recorded in studio sessions, and performed live gigs.
