Edgar Hurley is a folk singer-songwriter who creates delicate yet complex compositions elevated by a lyrically-driven delivery and an unassuming, intimate presence.
Hailing from the sleepy harbour town of Portsmouth in England and having settled in Brisbane in 2013, Jordan Wearn has been writing music as Edgar Hurley since early 2020. July 2021 saw the release of the warmly received debut album 'The Blame Needs A Place' which was heralded with the singles 'Sometimes' and 'Hurrah'.
Much of the lyrical content from the album was taken from a vast catalog of poetry that Jordan has penned. A selection of which was published in the collection of works entitled 'You Gave Me A Lily and Now It's A Field' that was offered as an accompaniment to the record.
Forced downtime in August produced a surprise mini-album in the form of the lo-fi '40s folk inspired 'Edgar Hurley and Tammy Lou Sing Some Songs In The Kitchen' which was recorded with Jordan's phone, in their kitchen over a two-week period and mastered to tape to get that nostalgic feel.
Jordan initially graced the Brisbane music scene with previous moniker Milow Pye, releasing a wonderful self-produced album entitled 'These Are Private Words Addressed To You In Public' in 2018 and double single 'Time (Again)' / 'I'm Alive' in 2019 and continues to write and produce some of the most honest, open and heartwarming music imaginable.
