Event Details

Edwards & Edwards is the musical collaboration of acclaimed songwriting and harmony brothers duo Jesse Daniel Edwards and L.A. Edwards. The pair grew up in the mountains of southern California harmonizing to gospel tracks while tinkering with hand me down instruments from their grandparents. Their first song (ages 8 and 6 respectively, was about their mother’s meatloaf). After busking around the US and abroad in their teens while living and recording out of their 1974 VW bus, the brothers eventually became the protégés of Ron Blair (Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers). They went on to appear on the music festival and university circuits full-time performing with Jason Mraz, First Aid Kit, and John Prine amongst others. Their studio and live recordings have been featured in radio, TV, Netflix and are available on Apple Music and Spotify. They continue to share their love of memorable hooks, clever lyrics, and world class harmony-singing both on stage and in the studio, with new releases in production for 2018.

Jesse Daniel Edwards is an award-winning independent songwriter currently residing in
Nashville. A recent review described him as, “a storyteller in the tradition of Damien Rice and Hank Williams for a new generation in dire need of a legitimate folk hero.” (Indie Radar 2016).

Based in San Diego, songwriter Luke Andrew Edwards (a.k.a L.A. Edwards) evokes the
California sound of groups like the Eagles and Jackson Browne. Described as, “encoreready folk tunes with just a hint of alt-country,” (Coverlaydown 2016), L.A. Edwards lends a new interpretation to a classic and enduring sound.
