Edd Donovan is a highly distinctive singer and songwriter with a rare, original talent. His sound is heartfelt – comforting, yet challenging – wise. Originally from Merseyside, he has made his home in Cheltenham.

His critically acclaimed début album, “Something to take the Edge Off”, was released in April 2014. The album garnered high praise in the press and radio.  Edd’s professional experience as a Social Worker has inspired a number of his songs and The Guardian’s article on Edd (“The Singing Social Worker”) gained his songwriting international attention. Edd’s first single from the album ‘House On Fire’ was inspired by Andrea Ashworth’s memoir, ‘Once In A House On Fire’.  On the back of the album,  Edd embarked on a hugely successful, extensive UK tour; both solo and with his band, The Wandering Moles.
