You can’t ask for a better, more complete package than J Edwards. He is songwriter, musician, arranger and one of the most awesome vocalists of our time. This voice is everything. It is compelling and powerful, soft and surly, breathtaking and binding. Combining voice with an uncanny knack for writing the lyrical conversation “you” always wanted to say, is what makes J Edwards a superb and relieving performer. Every song is a living thing and J Edwards holds it out for you to take.
Old school, new school and everything between is what you get from the first moment hearing J Edwards. Simple refrains from this powerful voice become the anthems of this day no matter the age. Singer/Songwriter or Songwriter/Singer, after listening to a few songs, it’s still undetermined. Lyrical compositions that anyone can relate to, wonderful musical arrangement, and a voice that could carry the weight of the crowd makes J Edwards an awesome experience.
There has never been a time when J Edwards wasn’t performing somewhere for someone. Strumming a guitar at age 5 and piano lessons at age 6 brought out the singer/songwriter that has grown into the communicator today. In his teens, J was given the hand clapping, foot-stomping “hollering” songs in the old church choir. After traveling the states and a short tour in the UK, J settled in South Carolina to work on writing and rest for a spell.
15 years ago J began working again in Columbia, SC and was soon voted “Best Blues Band” in Columbia. Although the genre changed around 2008 with the release of "Everything changes" to more Americana music, the raw sound was still prevalent in his songs. Now after his 2008 release of "Everything changes" and a full year of promoting it's "American-rock" sound, he has returned to the scene with a full-on Blues album recorded with some of the finest players in Nashville. He has “jammed” with Joe Sample, Shaun Murphy, Derrick St. Holmes, Rickey Godfrey and lately opened for the legendary Leon Russell. J Edwards is currently touring the south and promoting his latest album “LuLu’s House” on Serenity Hill Records.
