CD Reviews

A South Carolina native w/ a better voice than Darius Rucker
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For the past few years, I have been buying albums based more on listening to the album prior to purchase than impulse buying off decent radio airplay. I had never heard of this guy before & was recommended to hear the CD. After one minute of each of the first two songs, I bought it. This man is unbelievable. Power, depth, emotion - all mixed into the perfect blend of music. Solitude is one of the greatest songs I've heard in the past few years. 3 AM is pure emotion. The rest of the album is great. His band is very good. Craig Shields adds saxophones & such in a peculiar blend. TJ Hall on drums brings just just enough power & subtlety to the music. Scott Bannevich's bass gives the songs their tone & lets Edwin do the rest. And get this - he's even better in concert & his new album kicks butt! One of the best albums in a while - if only he could get some serious airplay."
The artist that 'popular' radio forgot!

"The first time I heard "Solitude" I said to myself that if one iota of those lyrics had any truth that this guy was the greatest songwriter to live in the last 10 years! When I met Edwin and the band some time in 1996 and found it was a true story I knew he was the greatest songwriter that 'popular' radio would never appreciate. "Solitude" got me to buy the CD, "Jesters,..." made me a huge fan. Because of EMB I've become familiar with two other artists, Jeffrey Gaines and Pete Riley (/Treehouse), who both opened for EMB the numerous times I've seen them. If you like what you hear on the CD but have never seen EMB live you have no clue what you're missing. If you like EMB and you're looking for more fantastic artists check out Jeffrey Gaines and Pete Riley."
Hooked from the first song

"My wife and I saw Edwin McCain open for Hootie & the Blowfish at a 1995 concert in Iowa. This was just a few days before Honor Among Thieves was released, and I hadn't heard of him before that night. His act was incredible--I haven't seen someone perform with such passion too often before or since. He certainly overshadowed the headlining act! This first CD definitely lived up to my high expectations--I picked it up the first day it was available and it's been in my personal CD rotation ever since. I'm especially partial to "Alive" and "Jesters, Dreamers and Thieves", but after those it's nearly impossible for me to rate the other songs. Absolutely incredible. I highly recommend this title."
