AN ASCOT musician has partnered up with a local dog grooming salon to release some unconventional merchandise - namely, bandanas for freshly-trimmed dogs.

Jack Hardman, Ascot resident and artist behind his music project Good Dog, has partnered up with Barking Beautiful, the dog-groomer in Ascot, to release the merch to his new single ‘Eyes of Stone’, to be released on April 9.

Mr Hardman said: "‘Eyes Of Stone’ is the follow up to 'Hopeless Man', a piano-led epic about the post-pandemic world, which recently reached No.1 on the iTunes UK singer/songwriter chart, rising above Jake Bugg, Hozier and George Ezra.

"The track also entered the Top 30 in iTunes UK main chart, and reached No.32 in Australia’s iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart and Spain’s Top 200 iTunes main chart.

"The unexpected iTunes no #1 was a real thrill.

Bracknell News:

"One minute I was cooking my dinner, the next I was in the top 5 and battling with Jake Bugg for the top spot!

"It was one of those bizarre internet moments that just seem to catch people’s imagination.”

Lia Henderson, owner of Barking Beautiful, based on Brockenhurst Road, South Ascot, said: "I groom his mum's dog, so he got into contact with me through her and mentioned that it would be a good idea to get the dogs involved.

"With every dog I groom they get a bow or a bandana on their collar, so that's why we've put the band's logo on it."

Ms Henderson added that she plans to make a social media post for Instagram or TikTok, with the dogs flaunting the merch.

She added: "I really like the music.

"He sent me over the unreleased song, and I hadn't heard it before but I really enjoyed it."
