Artist Biography by

David Edwards' music has echoes of Paul Simon, Doc Watson, Sting, the Beatles, James Taylor, and even a little Beach Boys. His music blends acoustic blues, folk, rock, and bluegrass into a lively mix that is hard to resist. He has an ear for a good story, anything from missing home to mountain fires. He has performed to crowds in New York City, the Midwest, and the Intermountain West. He was classically trained on the cello but has always had a deep love for contemporary music. Of all the places he has lived -- Japan, New York City, Utah, Milwaukee, Texas -- every place has left its mark, from the deep heartbeat of Japanese taiko drums to the high lonesome sound of a tight bluegrass trio. This combination of influences has produced a musician with an ear for the tight pop chord progression and the irresistible hook, while underneath brews music that is remarkably deep and multi-layered. For all his traveling, Edwards still harbors a deep love of the Western mountains. Edwards performs solo or with his band, which includes bass, guitar, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, tuba, keyboards, and didgeridoo.
