Warm as summer sunshine ,real as truth, intimate as a long overdue visit between old friends….. such is a Jonathan Edwards concert. Four decades into a stellar career of uncompromising musical integrity, the man simply delivers, night after night – songs of passion, songs of insight,songs of humor, all rendered in that pure and powerful tenor which, like a fine wine, has only grown sweeter with age.
Jonathan maintains that it is the feedback he receives after his shows that keeps him going. “ It’s really gratifying to hear someone say, ‘Your stuff has meant a lot to me over the years’”. The “stuff” he his referring to are songs like “ Sometimes, One Day Closer, Don’t Cry Blue, Shanty and the anthemic Sunshine”
“Jonathan Edwards and his music remain as original and relevant today and his voice as strong and memorable as ever”
