Like a magpie navigating the landscape, Canadian singer-songwriter Ben Edwards focuses on sharing lyrical realism directed through a conduit of expansive, melodic vocals and raw, unhinged guitar playing.
Edwards has a sound that combines early influences of classic rock, folk and country, with a love of 90's rock and world music. Being a live musician on the east coast of Canada for nearly a decade, Ben has had the opportunity to share the stage with a slew of well-known Eastern Canadian acts.
He has released several projects to date. In 2012 as a singer/guitar player with blues rock band Black Rock Road, a four song EP was released. After several years, he branched off on his own in 2014 to release his first solo offering, a six song project called 'Bright Light Catastrophe'.
2018 will see the release of 'Self-Titled', the second album under his own name. It's a small collection of both observational, and heartfelt songs. A thought provoking exposé of the world around him. This project was conceived almost entirely by Edwards himself, from writing to recording, mixing and producing.
Currently based in Toronto, Ontario, Edwards grew up in rural Nova Scotia.
