Jonathan Edwards Biography

Jonathan Edwards was born in Minnesota and played his first music on piano, taking a few lessons from the lady who lived next door and then learning by ear.

So from then until now, Jonathan has been busy with touring, session work, and producing his own music as well as the music of other talents, such as Cheryl Wheeler ("Driving Home," "Mrs. Pinocci's Guitar"). He took part in the 1994 "Back to the Future" tour that also included Don McLean, Tom Rush, Jesse Colin-Young, Steve Forbert, and Al Stewart. It played major venues coast to coast and earned Jonathan rave reviews. 1994 also marked the release of One Day Closer, his first solo album in five years, on his new nationally-distributed record label, Rising Records. Man in the Moon, which includes several original Edwards' songs, followed the end of '97. Other projects included the scoring of the soundtrack for "The Mouse", starring John Savage. In 1998 he discovered he was a major star in The Netherlands, where his audiences knew the words to all his songs, wouldn't let him leave the stage, and bought every CD in sight.

In 2000 he narrated and performed in a 13-week travel series for Media Artists entitled "Cruising Americas Waterways" (www.cruisingamerica.com), which was purchased by PBS-TV and is still being shown on PBS-TV stations from coast to coast. Media Artists also released a companion CD, appropriately titled Cruising Americas Waterways. Jonathan participated in a second 13-week "Cruising America's Waterways" series, which started running on PBS-TV stations in May, 2004. And listen for about 30 seconds of "Sunshine" in the 2004 Will Ferrell movie "Anchorman". The song is also included on the movie soundtrack.

Jonathan celebrated 30 years of "Sunshine" with a "First Annual Farewell Tour" w/Kenny White on piano in 2001. He is still touring occasionally, but selectively. Jonathan currently lives in NYC.

A major motion picture, called "The Golden Boys," starring Bruce Dern, David Carradine, Charles Durning, Mariel Hemingway, Christy Scott Cashman and Rip Torn, will also include Jonathan as Reverend Perley. It is a romantic comedy set on Cape Cod in 1905. Jonathan has completed filming his role and composing music as well as scoring the film. "The Golden Boys" is slated for release in 2008.
