ABOUT
John Edwin is a hardworking acoustic experimental folkmusician and songwriter from Östersund. He mostly performs solo and entertains his audience with banjo, guitar, fiddle, harmonica and flatfootingaccompaniment. He´s inpired by american folkmusic. Basement recording is the name of his last album. It´s a fulllenght acoustic/folk/indie album recorded in a basement of Östersund. All songs are written/performed and produced by John Edwin.John Edwin is a member of the bluegrass band "the Blue Mounatin Boys " and the travelling theater " Friteatern . He`s been a professional and on tour since 1998.

"John Edwin is a great compilation of country and folk songs full of meaning and truth. John's music will move you in a spiritual way, and you'll find yourself contemplating life what awaits you on the other side of this physical existence of ours.

The project's most thought provoking song is the title track, , which addresses how tough it can be to do the good and right things in life sometimes. The main chorus line sums up the message in the song when John sings, "It's a long way to Heaven, and it's a short road to hell." John didn't leave any stone unturned on this song either, which is evident in the tunes 8 minute running time.

The music is driven by the acoustic guitar bringing forth that classic folk sound we've come to know from greats like Bob Dylan. This is a good song that I'd recommend to folk music fans.

Other engaging songs on this EP include: Never Let Your Smile Become A Mask, Life Is Just Another Side of Death, and Feather In The Storm. Each of these songs embody all of the elements of great folk music, making for a pretty good project.

Overall, I think John Edwin could easily establish himself as Sweden's own Bob Dylan and build up a legendary status for his music. Check this guy out if you're a fan of folk music,I'm sure you'll find John's songs to be worth your time.

MUSICAL GOAL:"My ultimate goal with my music is to touch people in their hearts andsouls. I like to keep on traveling, get more gigs and get a larger audience."-John Edwin
