ED Brayshaw's creativity playing on Random Repeat a wonderful guitar-centric, but not at the expense of the song, album by a player of serious talent. ED Brayshaw has a touch and feel on the fretboard that many could learn from
Jimmy Regal & The Royals Ain't Done Yet. There’s a lot going on in these 5 numbers! Listening to these varied tracks ensures the E.P. is filed under B for brilliant.
