Birmingham UK singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Ed Geater combines sublime songwriting, rhythmical dexterity and technical prowess. Growing up on rock, pop and electronic music, Ed used inspiration from his childhood classical training and pursued his love of songwriting, while harnessing his skills as an intrumentalist/producer and learning to beatbox.

Influenced by his obsession with artists such as Bonobo, Boards of Canada and Four Tet – Ed set out to create similar musical landscapes using acoustic guitar and atmospheric production. The resulting sound is an electronica infused, pop-laden tapestry, with nods to songwriters such as Jeff Buckley and Jamie Woon. Signed to Brox Records – the label’s first release was the hip-hop infused Found a Place (feat. Lady Sanity) featuring Birmingham MC Lady Sanity which gained significant support from BBC Introducing, leading to spins on BBC 6 Music by Tom Robinson and a live session with SBTV. In 2020 Ed teamed up with fellow Birmingham artist ENiGMA Dubz to rework five of his songs on Geater Dubz, including Part of You – ENiGMA Dubz Remix that was curated within Spotify’s creamy playlist. Ed hit playlist success again in 2022 with US based, Indian artist Subhi when their heartfelt single Water Raft was featured in Fresh Finds India. After a songwriting camp at Karma Sound Studios in Thailand, writing with Brit Award winner Jack Garratt and Thai starlet Valentina Ploy, Ed has exciting things in store for 2023.
