Ezra Furman (Pronouns – she/they/her/them)

Through 5 critically acclaimed solo albums, 3 albums with her former band the Harpoons as well as creating the original soundtrack for the hit Netflix Original Series ‘Sex Education’, Ezra Furman has amassed an arsenal of much-loved music.

Exploring themes of identity, religion, political angst, love, anxiety, Furman has become an icon for the misunderstood and the oppressed. Her live show has built a fierce reputation with The Guardian dubbing her “the most compelling live act you can see right now”.

Furman has also written a book on Lou Reed’s classic album ‘Transformer’ and the relationship the record has with her own life and awakening as part of the 33 1/3 Series. She has also become a regular guest host on BBC 6Music.
