Known for his Baroque sound, Ed Harcourt is a distinctively enigmatic presence in the industry, having achieved prolific success as both a solo artist and collaborator. Arriving in 2000 with his Mercury Prize-nominated debut album, Here Be Monsters, Ed quickly gained praise for his dark-toned sound. He has since released nine further albums, including two instrumental records, and has performed on major festival stages across the world including Glastonbury, Latitude, End Of The Road, Primavera Sound and Lowlands. Ed has worked consistently with a wide variety of artists: as musical director on Beck’s Song Book Reader at the Barbican and The Beatles Sgt Pepper tribute at the Philharmonie de Paris, and co-writer and producer for Paloma Faith, Marianne Faithfull, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Jamie Cullum and more. He is currently putting the finishing touches to his forthcoming solo record, El Magnifico.
