Artist : Mark Edwards
Mark Edwards Biography
Having spent many years as a journalist and music writer, Mark Edwards decided to put himself in the critical firing line by recording his first album as a musical artist in his own right.
Balance is aimed at a niche market of music-lovers who are looking for something a little more cerebral and stripped-down than most of the over-produced fare that comprises the mainstream. Revelling in the low-fi soundscapes offered by arcane and often vintage instruments and studio equipment, he created an album that demands attention – and got it. 'The Sun' said: “'You Have Burnt A Bridge' is reminiscent of Air with its fuzzy, light keyboard refrain while 'Look' is much darker, a wordless Blade Runner soundscape. Edwards is making great music that will test people's perceptions.”
Mark is currently music critic at the Sunday Times, and his music can be heard at myspace.com/markedwardstunes. Mark's website is at www.markedwardstunes.com
Mark is currently preparing material for a follow-up album, provisionally entitled 'Imbalance'.
