The year is almost done, the future has begun,
Let’s sit and have a cup of tea, and watch the setting sun.
Just think, this time last year it was nearly the end of the world.
And here we all are…
This year it’s been great to get my songs recorded and released for other people to enjoy: Simple Life!
Music-wise, the first half of 2013 was recording and mixing, the second half launching the album and playing live around Scotland…
I’ll finish the year with a Christmas Carol . . .
And here’s a few excerpts from websites mentioning Simple Life:
Folk Radio UK – “Simple Life: Song of the Day, A name I think we’ll be hearing a lot more from.”
Inverness Gigs – “You have an impressive way with an observational style to your song-writing (from roundabouts to the end of the world)…”
Ralph’s Life – “Michael Marra’s shoes will take some filling, but as the first anniversary of his untimely passing fast approaches it’s this Jack Russell’s view that Ed Muirhead’s got what it takes…”
Rusty Hip – “Ed’s music is a fascinating potion of earnest songwriting, great storytelling and evocative near bluesy vocals…”
Ravechild – “You can tell that so much hard work has gone into every detail of the record, one that you struggle to find anything to criticise – a truly amazing talent.”
Oli Arditi – “This is songwriting done right, skillfully realised, performed without equivocation; the results are moving.”
