Ed Harcourt

has quietly grown from a precocious songwriter into an artist with an impressive solo catalogue who’s sought out by the likes of Mark Linkous, Erik Truffaz and Patti Smith as a collaborator. Over the last ten years the Sussex-based multi-intrumentalist has released five studio albums, two EPs and was nominated for the 2001 Mercury Prize.
