Tullett has shared stages with the likes of Tegan & Sara, The Dear Hunter, HRVRD and more, and was also announced as a winner in the Bon Iver Stems Project - a contest in which Justin Vernon, the 2012 Grammy Award winner of Best Alternative Music Album and Best New Artist, teamed up with Indaba Music to give musicians a chance to remix a song from Bon Iver’s self-titled album. Tullett’s winning track “Hinnom, TX - Ed Tullett Remix” can be heard on the Spotify exclusive album Bon Iver, Bon Iver: Stems Project.
