Ed Cosens returns for another run of solo shows, this time bringing his intimate, stripped back acoustic set to The Castle – his first headline show in Manchester!
A creative catalyst for over a decade in Reverend And The Makers, Ed has enjoyed a rich musical life, creating hit songs and albums, playing shows across the world, without many truly understanding the significance of his influence and vision.
Ed’s music brings together the culmination of many years honing his craft and is bursting with tremolo-rich, strings-soaked melody. Plangent chord progressions and mournful tones pair with poetic reflections on life’s twists and turns. Shades of The Beatles, Echo & The Bunnymen and Richard Hawley snake in and out. Cosens is a key – though perhaps somewhat overlooked – figure in Sheffield’s culture-changing, musical explosion of the mid 2000’s and a mainstay of the Sheffield scene ever since.
