Ed started making music in the late 1990s with Brothers in Sound, who released three EPs and an album with Regal Recordings and BMG. He left the band in 2000 with the intention of embarking on a solo career, but it took until 2012 for him to finally start doing something about it. He released 2 EPs (Unpacking my Library in 2012, followed by The Adjustable Arm in 2014) before joining the ranks of Lost Map Records, who released his debut album, The Uncle Sold at the beginning of 2017.
“affirms the talent and ability of this accomplished, bold and starry-eyed visionary” - **The Quietus **

Intricate melodies that weave over brooding basslines, Ailsa is creating an ethereal world that is rooted in folk with darker undertones. Inspired by choral music, folk and indie her sound is haunting, tender and powerful. Her lyrics are both honest and poetic, often exploring feminism and her experiences of being female in her writing. As a classical cellist Ailsa has an unusual approach to song writing and arranging; originally she performed using the cello to accompany her voice but has recently turned to the electric bass to explore a different tone. Ailsa has an all-female band which bring her song writing to life, from modal harmonies and driving rhythms to tender emotive melody lines.
