Heres a bit of BLURB too:
"Rich infectious vocals on a bed of acoustic arrangements" are just a few of the words that have been used to describe the sound of singer/songwriter Stickboy or Craig Edmondson as he is more commonly known.
He first started writing and recording as a way to express his thoughts and experiences in the most beautiful way possible, all the songs were recorded at home in his bedroom, giving them a very intimate feel.
Touted by some as sounding like a mix of modern folk and Americana with a very British pop twist. His influences come form artists such as Nick drake, Dylan and sparklehorse to name a few.
His first collection of demos "odd little moments" received rave reviews and sold out instantly in his home town of Manchester in late 2004.
Followed by the ultra limited release â€œEP1â€? which completely sold out in just a number of hours in 2005.
This new release is a step forward, with bigger songs and a more finished feel, still recorded solo and at home the song writing has got stronger and stronger, so this could possibly be his biggest release to date.
Stickboy has played all the big nights in Manchester backed up by his band and is now starting to do a few acoustic shows to showcase the songs in their simplest form.
Keep your eyes peeled and ears to the ground!
