Edison feat. Maxwell Hughes (formerly of the Lumineers)
Join us for a special night with Edison!
EDISON... a lysergic twist on the modern folk freak scene often heartbroken but always upbeat as they traverse the American landscape looking for kicks and kindred spirits for a footstompin' good time backed up with bonafide musicianship. Edison - singer/guitarist Sarah Slaton, multi-instrumentalist, Dustin Morris, and Grammy-nominated guitarist, Maxwell Hughes (formerly of The Lumineers) - is an indie rock trio from Colorado which has quickly emerged as a musical force. Although they've only been a band since late 2014, they've already built a substantial national fan base thanks to their high-energy live shows and tireless touring efforts. In addition to countless club gigs, they've earned attention at such music industry conferences as SXSW, CMJ Music Marathon and Folk Alliance International. "We've been on the road nonstop for over a year", Slaton notes. "We didn't have a lot of releases out there so we decided to hit the road and meet as many people as we could and foster those relationships." That strategy worked, winning the band a devoted national audience as well as support slots with the likes of Iron & Wine, Langhorne Slim and Nathaniel Rateliff & The Nightsweats.
MAXWELL HUGHES...remarkably for a musician of his profile, Hughes didn't even pick up an instrument until he was 16 years old. Before that, he was just a normal kid growing up in Fort Collins, Colorado -- a music fan, to be sure, but one with no awareness of his dormant powers. His awakening came when he was introduced to the music of Australian acoustic guitarist Tommy Emmanuel, whose percussive approach to the instrument inspired Hughes to see possibilities he'd never before entertained. From there, Hughes explored the music of the frenetic virtuoso Kaki King and the electrifying mandolinist Chris Thile (Hughes contributed mandolin to the Lumineers during his tenure with the band -- one in which he wrote two of the songs that would highlight their Grammy-nominated debut.) Echoes of Emmanuel, King, and Thile are audible in his own compositions, but through hours of practice and innovation, he's utterly transformed his sources. As precise and dazzling as his technique is, the most astonishing thing about Hughes' playing is just how emotionally evocative it can be.
