A look at Ed Fuchs’ life suggests there’s no such thing as accident or coincidence. Every person and experience fulfills a purpose, and eventually, these things converge to create something more significant than their individual parts. From metal band frontman to worship singer, Fuchs has traveled through addictions to redemption, with music a constant companion. A child flutist turned singer/songwriter/guitar player, Fuchs brings his training in musical theory and composition to every song, creating a complex sound that moves beyond the surface. In this, his first compilation, there is a haunting thread that travels through each song. It’s more than just technique and tuning that enliven Fuchs’ songs; it’s the openness and ache laid bare as he deals with the things of the soul.
