Boss Awesome is the musical brainchild of guitarist and producer Jonathan Edwards. Founded in the summer of 2011, this Knoxville native began writing his own blend of funk, house, and livetronica. He began to experiment with electronic music production while attending the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. After making a name for himself around town, he started opening for regional acts and was featured on local radio stations. With over ten years of playing guitar and being in multiple bands, he incorporates his wealth of musical knowledge with electronic beats and synthesized sounds to combine world, both old and new, brining his audiences something they have never seen before and creating a musical smoothie guaranteed to satisfy anyone’s palate.
He has had the honor of sharing bills with artists such as Boombox, Archnemesis, This is Art, The Polish Ambassador, Adventure Club, Zoogma, Arpetrio, Backup Planet, Modern Measure, Paul Basic, SAVOY, Up Until Now, D.V.S*, The Floozies,The Motet, Railroad Earth, Cosby Sweater, The Werks, RJD2, and Papadosio at venues and festivals across the southeast.
All three of his major releases (The Oneironaut, Lost in the Backlight, and Stealing a Piece of the Setting Sun) have all received critical acclaim in the local music scene, not to mention countless singles that have been released between those.
