JONATHAN EDWARDS (Folk)

He’s neither grizzled nor nostalgic, but veteran artist Edwards is still warm as sunshine, real as truth, and intimate as a visit between old friends. With uncompromising musical integrity, he delivers songs of passion, insight, and humor rendered in a powerful tenor.

As Edward journeys into the future, remember his promise from 1971: “Sunshine, come on back another day … I promise you I’ll still be singing.”  www.jonathanedwards.net
