Jed Appleton


The young, rising star of the nu-folk revolution has been hard at his craft for years, fascinating crowds mixing a unique blend of dynamic rhythmic stylings on the parlour acoustic alongside smooth but powerful textures from his raw vocals accompanied by strong lyrical sense far beyond his 21 years. This minstrel has captured the ears of many, from street corners to sold out venues all across the world supporting the likes of Passenger, Matt Corby, The Cat Empire & Stu Larsen, since leaving school at the age of 16.
Jed's tunes start off like many other folk songs, but once they get going tend to give you a big old punch in the heart-strings. For Jed, it really is all about the music and his deep passion, actualized by his simplistic yet authentic approach is both impressive and rare.

Since 2012, Jed has created 4 independent records and toured the UK/EU/IRE/AUS circuit many times over, wiped the records from any online presence and recorded his self-titled album in 2016 with Chris Vallejo in Sydney, with albums no.6 & no.7 already written and recorded.
