Edward is an EP from London singer-songwriter Emma-Lee Moss, better known as Emmy the Great, released on August 10, 2009 on UK indie label Close Harbour Records. It is a collection of songs written before the release of her debut album First Love but not recorded in the album sessions. Moss stated on her MySpace page that after playing these songs on tour, she was reminded of the joys of song-writing, and inspired to record the songs for a spontaneous release.
The EP was released with a copy of a short story penned by Moss, entitled 'The Wet and Windy Moors'.", and was generally well received on release. Website Drowned in Sound's Paul Brown praised it as showing "examples of Emmy's ability to interweave poignancy with knowing wit.", and considered it a fitting way to round off before the beginning of recording of Moss's second album.
Myson of Chenae (/ˈmaɪsən, ˈmaɪsɒn/; Greek: Μύσων ὁ Χηνεύς; fl. 6th-century BC), also called "of Chen", was, according to Plato, one of the Seven Sages of Greece.
According to Sosicrates, who quoted Hermippus, Myson was the son of Strymon, a tyrant of his country. All sources agree that Myson was a plain farmer, though they differ as to his place of birth and residence. He is said to have lived in the village of Chen, though this is variously located in Laconia or Crete. He is also said to be "of Oeta", which seems to be a reference to Mount Oeta; but the reference is sometimes read as "Etea" instead, which again may have been in Laconia or else in Crete. He died at the age of 97.
