Biography

At 18, Ed Robertson (born Lloyd Edward Elwyn Robertson, but not to be confused with THAT Lloyd Robertson) co-founded the Canadian pop-rock band Barenaked Ladies with fellow Scarborough-native Steven Page. The two continue to share the spotlight as the band’s co-songwriters and co-lead singers. Ed has sung lead on some of the band’s biggest hits, including “One Week”, “Pinch Me”, and “If I Had $1,000,000”, as well as the band’s most recent single, “Easy”, off of their 8th studio record, ‘Barenaked Ladies Are Me’.

When not with Barenaked Ladies, Ed remains active in music. He has produced for the Canadian band The Waltons, as well as the solo-project of The Waltons’ lead singer, Jason Plumb. Ed also co-wrote the song “Satellite”, which appeared on Jason’s record. Ed has also written songs with country singer John Berry (“He Makes Me Want Her Again”), Andy Kim, and the band Hanson. He has also lent his vocal skills to duets with fellow Canadian artists Holly Cole, Melanie Doane, and YAP, as well as the side-projects of fellow band members Tyler Stewart (Don’t Talk Dance) and Jim Creeggan (The Brothers Creeggan). More recently, Ed also wrote and sang the “Wiggle Song” that can currently be heard on the international television ad campaign for Jell-O products. On rare occasions, he does solo shows himself, where he will feature some of the music he’s written with artists outside of BNL, as well as some of BNL’s best-known songs. However, Ed insists that, unlike his other 4 band members, he has no intention of starting a side project or solo album of his own.
