Bio

Based in Perth, Western Australia. Prolific composer and collaborator

Eden's mum Isabel wrote this bio for him. Here it is

I often hang out with a stuffed bear called Bear, and Bear being a bear - my favourite animal of all time and one that is stuffed, is the best possible muse; he knows what it's like to hibernate and wake up starving. His edges depend on the pivots of hunger and sleep.

Most days I run up and down 208 meters' worth of stone steps on a giant volcanic dome of rock near my house, and the rock being nothing but an enormous rock is another great muse in my life: it knows what it's like to appear to have nothing on your mind - nothing at all - until lightning strikes and fire or rain takes place.

The last of my muses is a childhood dream, a repeat nightmare actually, about crossing the sea, from one headland to another, on an Indiana Jones type swing bridge that is falling apart. Far below I can see the circling shadows of waiting sharks. Those sharks are a muse in my creative life whether I like it or not: I can't go back even though the way forward is uncertain.

Got a big Friendly Fires, Two Door Cinema Club vibe that speaks to me on a very deep level. And as always, always more cowbell.

Oh yes, an excessive use of the cow bell is what I look for every day. Love the unusually long intro and the sound of your voice. I love the reality of these lyrics when it comes to relationships too... "maybe I could try to change, even though everything would go back to the way it was" and "maybe I could tell the truth, and maybe you could read between the lines like you always...

This is a rhythm section by angels with a hook that edges itself inside the head for days!! The layers of vocal melodies has me motivated to wake up in the morning
