L.A. Edwards is the music of Luke Andrew Edwards. The band's debut record, “True Blue” is the most recent release out of the Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers camp, produced by Heartbreaker bassist Ron Blair. They stepped into the studio with the goal of making a great California rock album. The result is a fresh take on the Laurel Canyon sound for the next generation. Eagles-esque brothers harmony, Stones inspired guitar weaving, the melancholy of Jackson Browne, and the working class optimism of Petty himself can all be heard on the record and on the stage.
L.A. Edwards has a large year of touring ahead in 2019, making appearances at FloydFest, M3F, Treefort, Bristol Rhythm & Roots, Wildflower, Pilgrimage, Las Cruces Country Music Fest, Americanafest, and Bumbershoot.
“True Blue is a record I’m proud of. The songs are soulful, the playing was live and fresh! It wasn’t long before Luke was running the show, so I got out of the way. That’s really what a producer does, let other people work, and then take the credit for it! Did I mention, I love these guys...” -Ron Blair, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
