Edwyn was recently honoured at this year's AIM Awards where he received the 'Outstanding Contribution To Music' award.
The last 12 months have seen Edwyn concentrate on running his AED record label, produce records for Vic Godard, Colorama, Charlie Boyer & The Voyeurs, Linden and London Mississippi with Seb Lewsley and begin work on a film about his life and music titled In Your Voice, In Your Heart with filmmakers Edward Lovelace & James Hall.
Edwyn will release his 8th solo album, Understated, through AED in early 2013. The album was produced and recorded by Edwyn and Seb at their West Heath Yard studio. His last solo album, Losing Sleep, was released to widespread acclaim in September 2010.
