Mobius Loop create gloriously eccentric gypsy folk stories, fusing world music and conscious rap with eruptions of free-form dance charged with an intimately powerful and intense energetic live performance. Mobius Loop are on a mission to raise positive vibrations, projecting an organic co-operative voice for humanist spirituality, vegan philosophy, grassroots philanthropy, true democracy and alchemical magic, in the name of Hemp Redemption and the infinite unknown.
Mobius Loop began on 08/08/08 and so the band are celebrating 10 years in August 2018. Managed and nurtured by singer/songwriter soul mates Alex & Katie, Mobius Loop have independently toured 10 European countries, written over 50 songs, released our 1st album, created sustainable hand-made merchandise, performed at many of the UKs best alternative festivals, graduated together with 1st class honours degrees in Experimental Music from University of Central Lancashire, won VegfestUK’s 2016 Vegan Song Competition, collaborated with some phenomenal artists and musicians and have hosted numerous family-friendly donation based music events around the UK promoting creative expression, celebrating diverse community, demonstrating healthy living and galvanising the Hemp Redemption.
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.
