WELL, HOW DID I GET HERE?
If I had to point fingers of course I'd have to blame Dylan, but I was ripe before his music forever changed my life.
I've written a thousand songs, starved, played on the street, played to the crowd, survived band explosions, self-implosions, and have had my heart broken, dreams crushed and soul thinned all over the place chasing that perfection of Mr. Tambourine Man -- and I wouldn't trade a minute of it.
When R.E.M. made the leap from Reckoning to Fables, I followed. Peter Gabriel, James Brown, Paul Simon, Scott Weiland, Bruce Springsteen.
I'VE TRIED SLEEPING
While uploading to Spotify, I learned of five other Charlie Edwards acts out there not hurting anybody. Rather than go Highlander on them, I'VE TRIED SLEEPING was born.
This record is a 10 song whole meant to be listened to in its entirety at loud volume. The songs will take you somewhere if you let them. Hit play on the player at the bottom of the screen and try to make it through the last two, they bottom out.
WHAT YOU SHOULD DO
My five-piece BAMF band wants to make more music. You can help us to realize this dream.
Listen, rock out, listen again, then please...
Post about it
Add it to your playlists
Throw some $$ at it (heaven forbid)
Thank you for listening!
