" ...a lysergic twist on the modern folk freak scene often heartbroken but always upbeat as they traverse the American landscape looking for kicks and kindred spirits for a footstompin' good time- backed up with bonafide musicianship. Edison - singer/guitarist Sarah Slaton, multi-instrumentalist, Dustin Morris, and Grammy-nominated guitarist, Maxwell Hughes (formerly of The Lumineers) - is an indie rock trio from Colorado which has quickly emerged as a musical force. Although they've only been a band since late 2014, they've already built a substantial national fan base thanks to their high-energy live shows and tireless touring efforts. In addition to countless club gigs, they've earned attention at such music industry conferences as SXSW, CMJ Music Marathon and Folk Alliance International. "We've been on the road nonstop for over a year", Slaton notes. "We didn't have a lot of releases out there so we decided to hit the road and meet as many people as we could and foster those relationships." That strategy worked, winning the band a devoted national audience as well as support slots with the likes of Iron & Wine, Langhorne Slim and Nathaniel Rateliff & The Nightsweats."
Shovelman is a junkyard beatnik, a shovel guitar wielding surrealist folk superhero. An enigmatic iconoclast, his music will lure you into another place and time. Drawing psychedelic rock melodies out of a barn shovel turned slide guitar, Shovelman manipulates cutting edge looping FX to craft broken orchestral experiences, retelling tall-tails and immortal hotel room hymns. The sounds of Mississippi delta blues from the electro-psychedelic future, collide with the antiquated rubble of lyrical one-man-band hoboetry. Shovelman's industrial barnyard blues has been likened to the music of Tom Waits, Morphine and The Black Keys. Shovelman has become infamous on the west coast festival circuit, sharing stages with acts such as Primus, Beats Antique, Jason Webley and Reggie Watts. He has also performed alongside the west coasts most prominent bohemian circus troupes, including Lucent Dossier, The Vau De Vire Society and The Wanderlust Circus.
"Shovelman has forged a perfect merger of the past and the present with his bluesy 'folktronic' sound." - LA Weekly
