“I wrote this song in Stockholm late 2020. The song is about cutting communication after a long relationship has ended in order to move on. It’s short and to the point in a lo-fi folk pop style.”
Ed Patrick has returns with another poignant slice of songwriting as he shares latest single, Nothing Personal.
Embracing his trademark bittersweet lyricism exploring heartbreak and loss, allied to an autumnal, rustic musicianship, Nothing Personal is another wistful offering. Gently strummed guitar is accented beautifully by sumptuous, delicate tracked vocals, delivered with Ed’s characteristic sense of yearning.
Nothing Personal, follows on from the success of last year’s double single release ‘You In My Life/Shoulder’. Ed’s ability to neatly combine classic musicianship with contemporary soundscapes has also seen him featured on Apple Music Breaking Songwriter playlist as well as his work appearing on HBO’s New Amsterdam and Marie Claire.
Growing up on the south coast of England, surrounded by his father’s old blues records and mother’s Laurel Canyon songbooks, Ed Patrick seemed destined for the music industry. Having left school at the tender age of 16, Ed worked in his local guitar shop earning enough money to buy a one way ticket to North America. Ed’s journey in developing his intimate style of songwriting was only just beginning.
Travelling throughout the country on Greyhound busses, Ed sought out his favourite guitar players’ numbers, intent on learning from the musicians he’d grown up listening to and who had graced the musical landscape of 70s and 80s US radio. The results have been impressive with Ed going onto release a string of singles and EPs amassing over 17 million streams on Spotify, picking up a myriad of playlist additions as well as support from the likes of BBC Introducing.
Nothing Personal is out now.
