Edwin McCain has launched a thousand marriages and stirred up Southern Soul for over twenty years. A rootsy singer/songwriter with ties to jazz and soul, McCain was raised in Greenville, S.C. on a musical diet of everything from Earth, Wind & Fire to David Wilcox. He recorded his first independent demo in 1991, issuing his debut, Solitude, two years later. Over the past two decades, McCain has morphed into a road warrior, gigging throughout North America most of the year, flanked by his longtime friends and bandmates Craig Shields on saxophone and keyboards, Larry Chaney on lead guitar, drummer Markeya "Tez" Sherard and bassist Jason Pomar.
For the guy who always dreamed of a life on the road, Edwin McCain's massive pop hits "I'll Be" and "I Could Not Ask For More" were like pulling into glamorous, exciting towns along his never-ending tour. They were life changing and sent him off with incredible memories and nifty souvenirs but were always just a part of the journey, not the destination. "I've been lucky enough to experience a pretty broad range of stardom, and the lack thereof, throughout my journey as a musician," he once said with a chuckle. "I've been on television shows and won awards, but I've also lived in the back of a truck, and I've even worked the Drive-Thru at Krispy Kreme singing wedding songs."
What would the musical baby of Jakob Dylan and Taylor Swift sound like? Owen Danoff, perhaps. He has a mind for lyrics, but a head full of pop sensibility. He’s got folk and country in his roots (His father wrote such songs as "Take Me Home, Country Roads" and "Afternoon Delight"), but his lifelong love for rock is obvious.
