Eddi Reader

Growing up in Glasgow and Irvine, Eddi Reader busked and performed at the local folk clubs before literally joining the circus in the early 1980s. After travelling around Europe with performance artists, Eddi moved to London where she quickly became a sought after session vocalist. She famously harmonized with Annie Lennox, touring with the Eurythmics, after her time with successful punk outfit Gang of Four.

It was the short-lived but warmly remembered Fairground Attraction that really brought her into the limelight and to the attention of a much wider audience. The single ‘Perfect’ and parent album ‘First of a Million Kisses’ both topped the British charts.

In 2001, Eddi moved back to Glasgow, where she recorded the classic ‘Songs Of Robert Burns’ album which was released to international acclaim in 2003. Eddi toured this album all over the world, finding connections to the Scottish bard everywhere from Kolkata, India to Sydney, Australia.

Eddi was awarded the MBE in 2006 for services to singing, and the same year she released ‘Peacetime’ featuring the finest traditional players in the United Kingdom and produced by Folk Musician of The Year, John McCusker. This was followed by “Love is The Way” which was Eddi’s seventh solo album, released in 2009. This album was recorded in a matter of days, featuring songs written with Boo Hewerdine, John Douglas (The Trashcan Sinatras), Jack Maher, Declan O’Rourke and a rare Brian Wilson composition.

2010-12 saw Eddi playing sold out shows to promote “Love Is The Way” worldwide and also brought Eddi’s Hollywood movie debut when she featured in “Me And Orson Welles” with Zac Efron and Clare Danes. Eddi plays a chanteuse in the movie and is featured singing ‘Lets Pretend That There’s A Moon’ with the Jools Holland Orchestra.

Constant touring with her band has created a magical organic chemistry between Eddi and her players. Whilst renowned for her technical vocal ability, it is Eddi’s passion and instinct that combine to ensure she connects emotionally with her audience.
