Ed Barker

Producer, Musical Director, Saxophone & Clarinet

Ed has a unique background in jazz, pop and classical music which means that every production or musical arrangement he is involved with fuses a myriad of musical traditions.

He is one of the UK’s most renowned saxophonists, known especially for his solos for international pop legend, the late George Michael. His debut album, Simple Truth, rocketed up the US independent pop charts, reaching number 1 for four weeks in 2014 with his single, When You Smile.

As well as working with Lance on this tour and in the studio, Ed has also served as music director for the X-Factor contestant, Anton Stephans, and runs Ed Sax School – an online education forum which allows students from anywhere in the world to take lessons in jazz and saxophone with Ed at any time of day or night.

Ed was never formally trained on the saxophone – he is self-taught – but learnt his craft in Britain’s National Youth Jazz Orchestra (NYJO) and National Youth Orchestra (NYO).
