Ed first picked up a guitar when he was in his teens. Inspired by Chuck Berry, John Lee Hooker, Bert Jansch and Jimi Hendrix, Ed was heavily influenced by Blind Reverend Gary Davis who was a busker with an exceptional finger picking style.

In the eighties Ed played guitar and lap slide with psychedelic rockers The Magic Mushroom Band, rave outfit Astralasia and the late great Ted Hawkins.
