A little over 50 Years ago Gil hit the road playing smokey bars and honky tonks, gathering tales from different towns, tales which he draws heavily upon for the vivid imagery in his songs.
Gil Edwards was born and raised in Medford, Oregon, but has worked and lived in Norway for some years now. In 1999 he released his first CD, “Can’t Give It Up” in Norway and has sold over 10,000 copies in Norway so far. Later in 2004 he released ¨Matyday Situation¨ And now these days he is releasing his third album ¨Celabrate¨in memory of the 50 years he´s had the joy of performing for live audeinces the world over.
“I started writing my own music because I felt the need to create something that I felt good with. There has been over the last few years a searching emptiness that has come over the music scene. It seems that more artists are created or designed if you will. That is not what art, in particular music is all about. In my time as a solo act I have found that there are lots of people out there that are still interested in real music. I mean the kind of music that comes from the soul, and the heart. That’s the kind of music I grew up on, and that’s the kind of music I want to produce for my listeners.”
“While remaining true to his traditional roots, Edwards pushes the boundaries with uncompromising lyrics and gritty guitar sound, that grabs you by the collar and drags you into the stories. Gil’s wonderful ability to capture elusive feelings and experiences in his songs has always set him apart as an artist. His gravely emotive voice against sweeter, warmer vocal harmonies give these songs power of honesty.”
