ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ed started work on his album, Simple Truth, in 2012 after touring with George Michael as his sax soloist, recording with some of the finest musicians from London, LA and New York. The album brings together all his favourite styles of music, fusing together elements of pop, jazz, soul, rock, funk and R&B.

If you like the grooves of Earth Wind and Fire and Tower of Power, the voices of Al Jarreau and Michael McDonald, the soulfulness of Dave Koz’s saxophone playing, David Sanborn’s funk playing, bebop, soft ballads or hard funky grooves with screaming sax, there is something on this album for everyone. There's even some Beyonce and Michael Jackson covers on there!

Ed hasn't confined himself to any one strict musical style as he finds that this sometimes constrains the artistic process. Ed says:

"For me, the most important task is to compose melodies of strength and beauty and to perform them with passion, groove and emotion – that’s the Simple Truth behind good music and that's the Simple Truth I’ve tried to convey with this album.

Putting this album together has been an incredible adventure. I have had the privilege of working with some of the finest musicians in the world from London, Los Angeles and New York. Every moment with these musicians has been both joyous and educational. I will treasure the memories forever."
