Birmingham singer-songwriter and beatboxer, Ed Geater has announced details of a new EP release and its accompanying live launch.
‘Unseen’ (released October 14th via Music Mandi) is the follow-up EP to his last extended player, ‘Barriers’, which featured the drum and bass infused ‘Don’t Think’ – the video for which you can watch below.
Ed, who is massively influenced by minimalist and ambient electronic artists such as Bonobo and Four Tet has developed a truly unique sound over the last couple of years, and will be looking to continue his mission of taking Birmingham by storm following the success of his ‘Barriers’ EP.
Not only is Ed one of the city’s finest songwriting talents – he’s also a pretty mean beatboxer too. His forthcoming single, ‘Symmetry’ showcases this perfectly with a blend of intricate guitar work floating amongst Ed’s dulcet tones and beatboxed backing; it’s a real toe-tapper. Keep an eye out for the ‘Symmetry’ single and video, both of which are set to drop in September.
Set to take place at Mama Roux’s in Digbeth on October 27th, the EP launch will be a great chance to see Ed in an intimate setting before he, inevitably, catapults in to stardom.
His last EP launch at the Sunflower Lounge was packed out – so we’d advise picking up your tickets as soon as possible. Tickets are on sale now and are available here.
Local artists Lady Sanity and Alex Rainsford will be special guests on the night.
