Eddi Reader grew up in Glasgow and Irvine in Scotland – and it was in those towns that she learned to use music as a vehicle for communicating with others through busking and performing at the local folk clubs. In the early 1980′s, Eddi travelled around Europe with circus and performance artists before moving to London where she quickly became a sought after session vocalist. She famously harmonized with Annie Lennox touring with the Eurythmics, she also added her vocal abilities to, amongst others: The Waterboys, Alison Moyet and successful post-punk outfit Gang of Four.
However, it was her subsequent albums which signalled her increasing ability to assimilate different musical styles and make them all very much her own. Her unerring instinct for fine material, whether self penned, collaborative or a carefully chosen cover version resulted in Mirmama (1992), Eddi Reader (1994), Candyfloss & Medicine (1996), Angels & Electricity (1998), Simple Soul (2001).
Awarded the MBE in 2006 for services to singing, Eddi Reader took her Burns songs on tour all over the world and found connections to the bard everywhere from Kolkata, India to Sydney, Australia. 2010 saw Eddi play sold out shows promoting ‘Love Is The Way‘ all over the world.
