The Circle of the Song tour with Ed Jurdi and Seth Walker hit 10 east coast cities ending with a raucous show in Asheville, NC. The response was great and the boys had a blast playing together so look for more COTS announcements in the near future!

EDA is back home in Orange Beach, AL preparing for the bi-yearly 'big change'. Each fall the family moves back to the beach and joins its Gulf Coast friends and fertile music scene. And then in the spring we pack up and head back to the flatlands of Bloomington in the heart of Central Illinois. This year's homecoming celebrates EDA's 20 years in the Twin Cities (Bloomington/Normal, IL) and we couldn't be more excited for the big show at Six Strings Club on 3/20. Then we head north to Batavia, IL for EDA's 43rd birthday and return to Kiss the Sky Records on 3/21.

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)

A superb solo effort... Lies & Wishes is a definite must have addition to your record collection.” Scott Zuppardo, No Depression

"Anderson pulls from the pockets of country, blues and Americana, capturing a different hue as the genres shift, in a juxtaposition of warm-hearted openness and biting self-doubt." - Taylor Haag, Performer Magazine

“Lies and Wishes delivers up ten tracks, all of them tantalizingly brief. Or is it that the songs are just so damed good and genre-defying they come and go too quickly? Neither rock nor country nor pop, though certainly tinged with hooks from all three approaches to songwriting, Anderson's style is refreshing in the extreme.” - Brian Miller, Vancouver Vivascene

"Anderson bares all in a package that recalls classic albums such as Wilco's "Summerteeth" and Tom Petty's "Wildflowers".  Bill Harroun, Folk Weekend
