Ed first picked up a guitar at the age of 8 and started teaching himself to play from his father's folk and pop song books. 13 years later he graduated from Perth College with an H.N.D. in Rock Music Performance and the Guitarist of the Year award.
He has played in numerous bands over the years covering a wide range of styles. He played electric lead guitar for pop/rockers Th1rt3en who released an album with Specialist Records. Played bass for Clash tribute act The Trash and bass for punk outfit The Blissetts. He currently also plays acoustic guitar for latin acoustic rockers Los Ladrones Del Amor.
He is an established guitar teacher who's students include Billy Lunn of Subways fame and has done a significant amount of session work both in this country and abroad.
He has been writing songs for as long as he can remember, his influences including Tom Petty, Iron Maiden, Ac/dc and Frank Turner.
Although admitting that in his youth he wanted to be the "spandex clad, long haired lead metal shredder" he has found his niche singing and playing acoustic guitar with a harpist either side of him.
"There are many things I love about Schrödinger's Strings but one of the foremost aspects is people's pre-conceived ideas about us. They see two harpists and a guitarist setting up and think they're in for an evening of classical, folk or Jazz, what they get is the complete opposite. Watching their confusion when they start to recognise a famous rock riff is often priceless!"
