Ed Cottam is a Manchester based singer songwriter (more recently he goes under Edmund Cottam).
Imagine what a quintessentially Victorian Englishman would sound like after being affected by Nick Cave's whole back catalogue.
"His voice is incredibly distinct, a bit reminiscent of Antony and the Johnsons (he's probably fed up of being described thus) but my knowledge of haunting melodramatic singers is limited. It's kind of like you'd think Edgar Allen Poe might sing like, resonant and melancholy and a touch gothic and fragile."
