Bio

Hailing from Sydney and currently making a name for himself as an artist in Australia and the UK. 24 year old Ed Wells has developed his own unique blend of modern-day, classic soul. Wells is a performer by nature; a highly-skilled, highly-accomplished pianist with smooth vocals like a hot cup of coffee on a winter’s morning. He showcased these talents with a performance of his song “Midnight Man” for Sofar Sounds London and has performed at distinguished venues like Troubadour Club (past performers include Bob Dylan and Adele). He recently came home to play a few tunes to SoFar crowds in Sydney and polish new material for his forthcoming EP. This new track features the delicious vocals of new talent Abby Bella May. “1983” Ed Wells’ latest release is a unique, acoustic and electronic fusion with elements of D’Angelo and Jordan Rakei. Wells takes on today’s technology-obsessed society, begging the question “What can I do to stay just like me?”. “1983” is released across all streaming services on Friday, March 1st.

you can't deny ed's passion but it's mixed here with space and a slower groove that works well.

Tell you what, I think this one's a goodie. Nice to hear new music from Ed Wells with a bit of a groove behind it. His voice sounds characteristically great as does the feature from Abby Bella May.
