Ed Wells Short Info

20 year old Sydneysider Ed Wells has recently found himself making an impression in both the UK and his homeland of Australia. The young singer/songwriter spent much of 2014 in the UK, performing a number of showcase gigs, including a spot on stage at the world famous Troubadour Club in London where Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Paul Simon, Elvis Costello and Adele have all performed.

It has been a formative and inspiring period for Ed, whose time growing up between London, Hong Kong and Sydney has further helped shaped his song-writing and musical style.  Ed combines a dark, yet powerful voice with highly accomplished piano skills and a level of songwriting skill and maturity that belies his age.
 
He describes his style as an eclectic mix of alternative folk/soul/pop with musical influences such as Jeff Buckley, Ben Howard, Vance Joy and Matt Corby. Australia’s respected The AU Review described him as a husky voiced piano man par excellence…(with) a voice that would melt butter (April 2014).

After attracting attention from several labels in the UK, Ed returns to Australia in early 2015 to release his new single ‘Sparrow and Seed’, accompanied by some select East Coast shows. ‘Sparrow and Seed’ is from Ed’s upcoming first long-play release, slated for release in mid-2015. Smart, accomplished and quite beautiful, the single gives you an indication of the many talents of this promising young artist.
