Ed Laurie

Add Date: September 23

Artist: Ed Laurie

Album: Meanwhile in the Park

Label: Dangerbird Records

Genre: Indie/Acoustic/Folk

Comments: British singer-songwriter Ed Laurie’s debut album, Meanwhile in the Park, blends Spanish-style guitar work with quietly disarming vocals to great success. Described as “magical realism for the ears,” all seven tracks are beautifully sparse and haunting—a cross-cultural musical experience, thanks to the Spanish and Latin influences. Think Leonard Cohen mixed with Jose Gonzalez, with a slight hint of Nick Drake. An absolutely amazing CD—start with the title track.
