Ry Edwards Bio:
There's something about Minnesota. In the tradition of other Great Minnesota-native Song writers Bob Dylan and Stuart Davis, comes a new talent who just isn't satisfied with pop music. Ry Edwards strives to create music with meaning. His messages vary from the over-medication of his generation to the small miracles that go by unnoticed in our daily lives. Edwards consistently creates engaging music that is as much a part of the story-telling as the words are. For instance in "Trust Me" the song is played in a fun, upbeat jazz style that makes you believe the sincerity of an apology and the promise of a bright future. But, the last four notes and a tactfully added "7th-chord" suddenly shift the mood and leave you wondering, "should I trust him?" One thing that you can trust is that you will have a good time at his shows! On stage, Edwards is full of energy, but admits he that he doesn't have much else to say because "it's all in the music." And the music has as much contrast as the messages do. The dynamic of his shows will leave you feeling engaged and refreshed. Doing all of his studio production from home, you might not expect much from his album, "Mirage." However, the album, does have a studio feel to it as he adds harmonies and complex beats that give each song a full sound. Live or on the album, Ry Edwards (the next big Minnesota Song Writer) is a musician you won't forget!
