Liverpool is certainly the place to be at the moment for fresh musical talent. Originally from Holmforth in West Yorkshire is Ed Poole. Now based in Liverpool Ed has built up a strong, loyal fan base and has earned the reputation as one of Liverpool’s hardest working musician. He released his much awaited EP – Winters on 25th October 2013.
With Ed on vocals and guitar he is joined by James Tidd, piano,synth, bass and backing vocals as well as Connor Dickson, drums and percussion. The influence coming from artist like Syd Barrett, The Beatles and Chuck Berry to name but a few. This EP consists of five beautifully crafted compositions with strong guitar intros, solos and riffs. The lyrics have a similar theme and talk of the fact that time is passing us by, and we’re not getting any younger. You must look after your life how ever difficult things can get, we must leave them behind and that there is always a glimmer of hope around the corner.
