Ed started making music in the late 1990s with Brothers in Sound, releasing three EPs and an album on Regal Recordings and BMG. After several years composing music for theatre and short films, he embarked on a solo career in 2012, releasing two EPs which received praise from No Fear of Pop, 20 Jazz Funk Greats and The 405. His music has appeared on various short films and TV and has regularly featured on BBC Radio 3, BBC6 Music and Resonance FM. He’s recently signed to Lost Map Records (home of Pictish Trail, Rozi Plain & Kid Canaveral), who released his debut album, The Uncle Sold, in January 2017.

Ed Dowie started making music in the late 1990s with Beta Band labelmates Brothers in Sound. After releasing three EPs and an album on Regal Recordings, the Brothers disbanded, and Ed was left to fend for himself in university libraries and underground bunkers. Later on, Ed joined The Paper Cinema, a live animation collective playing shows around the UK and across the globe. Ed has released two EPs: the first, Unpacking My Library was written in response to the Paravion Press publication of a Walter Benjamin essay of the same name. The second, The Adjustable Arm was released last year and received many good reviews. Ed has played solo shows in various venues and festivals around the UK including Kings Place, Tate Britain, Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Latitude and Knockengorroch Festivals and have been played on BBC Radio 3, Resonance FM and Amazing Radio. He’s just finished his debut album, The Uncle Sold and is gearing up for some UK dates.
