Ahead of the Courtyard Sessions at the Seymour Centre (kicking off this weekend), Sydney’s own Ed Saloman takes some time out ahead of his gig as part of the series to answer some of our questions! Citing the likes of Thom Yorke as inspiration for his music and giving us some hints as to what’s still to come for him in 2016, Saloman’s music is definitely material to be keeping an eye out on as this year rolls out.
Ed will be performing a free show on February 5th – the event commences from 6pm, with the live music continuing through until 9pm!
How would you describe your sound?
Who do you cite as inspiration?
If we were to listen to one song from you or your band, what should it be?

What can we expect from your set at the Courtyard Sessions?
Swirling melodies and an emotional drawl.
If you could program one Australian artist to be a part of an event like this, who would it be and why?
Kevin Parker. Because he’s Kevin Parker!
Fill us in on what you’re up to at the moment!
Studio recordings en route later this year.
What were the highlights for you and the band in 2015?
Finally getting back into the studio and onto the stage after a brief hiatus.
What do you have in store for 2016?
How important are events like this to the local scene?
Really, really important. We’re losing venues left, right and centre, so people and venues have gotta stick there neck out a bit, I suppose. Well done for having this!
