*Ed Askew: http://www.tinangelrecords.co.uk/edaskew/index.html
Ed Askew is a painter and singer-songwriter who lives in New York City. Born in Stamford, Connecticut, he moved to New Haven to study painting at Yale Art School in 1963.
The singer-songwriter moved to New York for a few months in 1967 where he met Bernard Stolman of ESP Disk' (Pearls Before Swine, Sun Ra, Albert Ayler), who offered him a contract. That year Ed's first album was released, Ask the Unicorn (on Parlophone in the UK) and it quickly disappeared into folk-psych obscurity. He then recorded his second album for ESP, Little Eyes, but it sat in the vaults for almost 40 years until it saw a limited release in 2007. Around 1987, Ed moved to New York City, where he continues to write and record songs, and now regularly performs. In the summer of 2011, Ed Askew embarked on his first US tour at the age of 71.
Ed is releasing a brand new album 'For The World' in September, was produced by Jerry DeCicca (The Black Swans), and features performances by Marc Ribot, Sharon van Etten, and Mary Lattimore. (adapted from Tin Angel Records site)
