Tin Angel Records Podcast #14 Ed Askew Ed Askew is a painter and song writer living in New York. Ed has a reputation as a New York music legend. This reputation is not undeserved, Ed released Ask The Unicorn on ESP in 1968 to critical acclaim and cult status. Fans of his work include Sharon Van Etten, Bill Callahan and Marc Ribot. More recently Ed released For The World on Tin Angel Records and after a sell out European tour in December 2013 we asked Ed to compile some songs for our podcast series. It seems fitting that with winter retreating (where we are anyway) we welcome spring with Ed’s selection. Enjoy. www.tinangelrecords.co.uk edaskew.bandcamp.com

Long lost 60’s acid folk gem Ed Askew has finally resurfaced with his piercingly beautiful voice and his lyrical universe of small peculiar stories and reflexions on art, music and time. There is a melancholy nerve and a heartwarming comfort in Askew’s music. Together with his harmonica - which he masters like only a few folk musicians do - and his band he delivers pop folk songs that will immediately leave a memorable imprint.Ed Askew Band at Jazz House, Copenhagen.

before the Columbus Theater show, with Josephine Foster and Victor Herrero, in Providence RI. 2/8/14
Just to say, last night issues project room’s great hall was packed. with standing room only. both Josephine and Victor played wonderful sets that went well. though there were some grumbling among Josephine’s fans because we had to keep everyone to about 35 minutes. i myself was disappointed that Josephine had to stop so soon. be that as it may,
Lawrence (the main man there) expressed surprise and pleasure that; “your music (Ed Askew Band’s music) has reached a whole new level”. he said this twice. he wants to do the next record release show at ISSUES. he liked especially “Quartets” (with Josephine singing every other verse. witch i thought worked well.
after, we went to a bar with everyone.. and later walked to another bar.
ah, the life. it was fucking freezing in NYC by the way. but my subway came soon. so it only took 40 minutes to get home. witch is a late night record.
Jan 22, our show with Josephine Foster and Victor Herrero at ISSUES PROJECT ROOM in Brooklyn.
