If nothing else, Ed Hale is a busy man. He’s been called a renaissance man, a genius, a blind idealist, and a fool — depending on who you ask. He is best known as the singer, songwriter and guitarist from the eclectic Brit-pop/indie rock band Transcendence. He has released eight studio albums over the last ten years, either with the band Transcendence or solo. His newest solo album Ballad on Third Avenue (Dying Van Gogh Records) is a lighter sounding eleven song acoustic-leaning singer/songwriter venture heavy on mood, emotion and lyrics that Hale describes as “whisper-pop.” The style of music on the album sounds reminiscent of Nick Drake, Bright Eyes, Kings of Convenience, Rubber Soul era Beatles, Belle and Sebastian, or Simon and Garfunkel. It was a bold step in a new direction for Hale, who was more well known in the college radio market or the commercial alt-rock radio world. Check him out right here on NEW!
