Ed Harcourt


Edward Henry Richard Harcourt-Smith isn't a prince or king's name but the birth name of Ed Harcourt, a talented British singer-songwriter, who released his sixth studio album, Back Into The Woods (2013), today. He declared that it took him 6 hours to record the whole album, so I tried to listen to that release with that thought in the back of my mind. Back Into The Woods is an intimate, mature record of an artist who has got a lot of confidence in his talent. In contrast to all the over-produced albums which hide the lack of talent in some of the performing artists albums, Ed Harcourt took his piano and a few more instruments and made a beautiful album. It might not be ground-breaking but it's worth listening to. Now, take your time, make a hot cup of tea and listen to five songs of Ed Harcourt, three of them from Back Into The Woods.
