SOUTHERN HEARTBURN’S music is first and foremost steeped in the Deep SOUTHERN Blues styles of the early 20th century. Ed’s songwriting mixes this love of blues and roots music with a modern electric, dynamic, powerful, RAW, soulful sound.
If you haven’t lost, you haven’t lived… All the Love, the Pain, the Joy, and Loss IS the music, and the music is a reflection of life. The HEART revels in the joy’s of life’s fleeting moments, and yet it can BURN with a sadness over pain and loss seems too much to bear.
“If we couldn’t laugh we would all go insane.” Robert Frost
So WE laugh in the face of despair. We ride on sarcastic wings and strive to create music with a vibrancy that transcends sadness into joy.
