Ed Cosens (Reverend and The Makers)


A creative catalyst for over a decade as the guitarist in Reverend and The Makers, Sheffield singer-songwriter Ed Cosens has enjoyed a rich musical life, creating hit songs and albums, playing shows across the world, without many truly understanding the significance of his influence and vision.

With an emotive, heart-swelling collection of songs, his solo work is the culmination of many years honing his craft and bursts with tremolo-rich, strings-soaked melody. Plangent chord progressions and mournful tones pair with poetic reflections on life’s twists and turns while shades of The Beatles, Echo & The Bunnymen and Richard Hawley snake in and out.

Cosens is a key – though perhaps somewhat overlooked – figure in Sheffield’s culture-changing, musical explosion of the mid 2000's and a mainstay of the Sheffield scene ever since. A scene that nurtured both ’The Makers and the likes of Arctic Monkeys. Alex Turner and Matt Helders from the latter were both members of an earlier Cosens led band.
