Manchester Deaf Institute

Just wanted to say thanks for an amazing gig last night in Manchester.

I was trying to think of some stand out moments, but the whole night was just outstanding.

Best set I've heard, the band were so tight,and there was a great buzz amongst the crowd.

Edwyns voice was so strong, Carwyn was great on What is my role, and I actually think it sounded better live than on the album. Boz, Andy & Cooky amazing - as was Tom "Evans" LOL!

Thank you aswell to the lovely…

Oran Mor 7th Nov.

Just back from the Oran Mor gig. The best gig of 2010. Great show and a great crowd. There were a bunch of be-fringed teenagers dancing in front of me who knew all the words to "Blue Boy", which helped balance out all us old people there. Edwyn on TOP form and I don't think I've ever felt such warmth and love pour from an audience like that before. Still smiling now. Thank you for coming home again, Edwyn!

Leeds last night

Great gig in Leeds Edwyn, thanks to all. Also enjoyed the 2 support bands. Thought Kinbeat were particularly good.

Gigs

Hi Edywn & Grace

Really looking forward to the gigs I'm going to at Manchester & Liverpool in November - Im sure the Well at the Cathedral will be an awesome setting.

Love the new album - really pleased to hear Losing Sleep finally out as a single. Saw Edwyn perform it at Buxton Opera House very early ( I recall snow on the ground and my wholly inappropriate footwear for that time!) 2009, so great it's finally made it out as on first hearing it I…

"Resurrection"

Hi Edwyn

similar journey, different illness. Fighting for rather than against and using the tools you have to help. Rebuilding confidence and relearning.

Music and words, with their patterns and spacial concepts and expression, I found invaluable in reaffirming my recovery.

I have been singing/songwriting for 35 yrs and was diagnosed with advanced and aggressive oral cancer 4/5 yrs ago. Gruelling chemo/radiotherapy and against all odds, here I am! Little steps and 18…

What a belter!

Well the new album has been on constant replay and, as expected, Sir Edwyn has delivered the goods once again. Particularly loving It Dawns On Me with the Romeo fella, but there are so many stand out tunes. Cheers Edwyn and all your accomplices. See you in Birmingham on Nov 15th, cant wait.

A tuesday surprise

September 28, Stockholm, Sweden.

A bright autumn day, with somewhat optimistic clouds. Nothing special happens.

Suddenly: "Tud" in the mail, and there it is: The new Edwyn-record, signed and
full of birds and microphones. This is pop! Cd:s can be wonderful too.
It changes the day totally...

Pleased to be here!

Just got tickets for the Liverpool gig at the Anglican Cathedral-great setting for it. My first ever gig was Orange Juice at the Mountford Hall as a 12 year old-I went with my mum who (don't tell her I told you) is now a pensioner so it is strange to be seeing Edwyn solo (well sort of) for the first time all these years later at the age of 40. So pleased, can't wait. I'm not obsessing about being 40 or anything, honest, but Edwyn and his music has been in my life for most of it and all being…

Just like the Four Tops..

I can't help myself from playing the 3 featured tracks over and over like some kind of possessed Alan Freed (altho' I don't think he was from Cheam). From what I've heard so far this marks yet another high point in Edwyn's musical catalogue. It brings out the best in the collaborators while remaining unmistakably Edwyn. A flamin' triumph is all I can say. Now back to the music..

Art Work and Bum Fuzz

Posted by scott owen on May 5, 2017 at 17:15 0 Comments

My Bum Fuzz unit just arrived in California along with some plectrums with Edwin art. It took me along time to order this unit, but the twenty five year gestation period for it to be built surely eclipses my lack of urgency. Best regards all...

Thank you for the music

A while back I asked Edwyn if he would let me use his music on a little film I made.  Here is the result: Mill Mechanics

Thanks for that.
