Music by Edward Blakeley.

· · ▼ · ·

“Former Steeleye Span fiddler Peter Knight, the man behind Gigspanner, earned a rather wonderful tribute from the late Terry Pratchett, who said: “Peter can spin the world on his bow”. Those words came to mind listening to the magnificent, elegiac, 8mins29secs long version of She Moved Through the Fair. Layers of Ages is produced by Gigspanner and Edward Blakeley, who also contributes bass and banjo on one track. The songs are mostly traditional (there is a fine version of Down by the Salley Gardens, which is based on the WB Yeats poem) including the vocal version of Death and the Lady. There’s a contemporary nod, too, in a vibrant live version of Knight’s own song Louisiana Flack. Guitarist Roger Flack and percussionist Vincent Salzfaas offer wonderful support to Knight on a feast of imaginative music on a band whose name is slang for a bottle-opener.” ★★★★★
Martin Chilton, Culture editor, Telegraph


“…Edd Blakeley has a great talent!”
Alan Titchmarsh, BBC Radio 2


“What a beautiful, inspirational, dramatic and heartfelt work it is.

I love that it is a unified piece of music – excuse my lack of formal musical terms – but the story begun so well with “Liftoff” is related so well throughout the six movements, that the piece becomes familiar in re-hearing lines here and there that we heard earlier. There are so many spine tingling moments in this music. The music brings so much of humanity with it on its journey of hope so far from home.”
Stephen O’Boyle, on the Rosetta Suite

Born in 1989 in the small town of Hastings in Sussex UK, young Leeds University 1st Class (Hons) graduate composer and producer Edward Blakeley’s music has already been heard by millions. By the age of 18, having already established a foothold in the local music scene, the self-taught multi-instrumentalist, composer, orchestrator, performer and producer founded Sonic Avenue Studios, renting a small commercial unit in nearby Bexhill-on-sea. Gaining experience as not only a studio engineer but also a manager, financier, and businessman the entrepreneur went on to work with multi-award winning, BAFTA/IVOR NOVELLO nominated composer Richard Jacques (James Bond: Bloodstone, Mass Effect, Little Big Planet 2) working as an assistant and aide, quickly becoming an apprentice composer. With airtime on BBC Radio 2 at the age of just 20, the young prodigy’s career looks firmly positive ahead, and his compositions and orchestration techniques have won him writing and sound design roles for feature-length films, animations, and video games.

He graduated with a First Class Honours degree, bolstering his already firm knowledge of music theory and of a variety of instruments and orchestration, and continues to hone his already impressive self-taught performance technique. His production and compositional capabilities extend from classical to folk to modern pop. Edward is already a renowned performer of the electric bass, drums, guitar, piano, and more recent instrumental ventures include the violin and trombone.

Edward specializes in composition and production using the world standard tool packages including Pro Tools, Cubase, Logic, and notation software Sibelius. He is also experienced in providing freelance services in transcription, sound design, production, and audio clean-up.
