About J Edwards
J Edwards was born in the northeastern corner of Arkansas, but spent most of his early years traveling across the country with his evangelist father and singing family. Edwards grew up with an instrument of some sort in his hands from necessity, playing what ever was needed at the nightly services. After traveling some on his own throughout the U.S. and some over seas tours in the christian music market, J Edwards settled into playing blues locally in Columbia, SC. With his catchy songs and raspy singing voice, it didn’t take long for him to build a close knit following of friends and fans.
After commuting for 5 years, J Edwards moved to Nashville at the end of 2012 to concentrate more on songwriting. Though his voice still holds those strong qualities of a New Orleans blues man, Nashville has begun to recognize his ability to write and perform in many other genres including Country and Americana. While working on a new “Southern Soul" album in the summer of 2014, J Edwards decided to stop and concentrate completely on an idea he had for honoring Veterans, active military and their families. "Heroes" was finished in October, 2014 and is the most purpose-filled project Edwards has ever done. J Edwards plays weekly when at home in Nashville, but spends most of his time on the road playing large and small venues across the country.
