New Record Announcement

I'm pleased to announce the release of my next studio album, Lower Alabama: The Loxley Sessions, due October 16 via Royal Potato Family. To capture the songs and sounds I was hearing this time around, I recruited Anthony Crawford— a former Neil Young and Steve Winwood bandmate and current member of the Alabama roots band, Willie Sugarcapps—to produce the recording. Together we hunkered down at his studio in the rural town of Loxley, Alabama and emerged with a timeless, unvarnished beauty of an album. Enjoy this sneak peak!

Recent Press

I always admire the nerves of those who hit the stage solo after a fiery band set. And Edward David Anderson was calm as a morning lake. He sat behind a big bass drum and thumped it happily while playing various stringed instruments and singing forward-looking, life-affirming songs.” - Craig Havighurst, Music City Roots

Ed is at a peak right now, writing at an extremely high level. This record is right up there with the best of anything I've ever been involved with.” - Steve Berlin, Los Lobos (Lies & Wishes producer)

Single Premiere: Jimmy & Bob & Jack


Single from the forthcoming record "Lower Alabama: The Loxley Sessions" available 10/16.
