David Eugene Edwards (16 Horsepower, Woven Hand) has literally been all I have listened to in the last three days. His voice is stark and gritty, mixing with his beautiful and painful lyrics. Edwards has been a big deal on the American folk scene for the last 2 decades, and not to mention, he loves Jesus. Edwards is really an embodiment of what GCC is trying to be: gospel-centered and intentionally making high quality culture in a world that isn’t. On the Tiny Desk Concert Series (NPR.org) Edwards plays three solo songs (on this amazing nylon string mandolin/banjo hybrid). Worth your time.
- Whistling Girl
- As I Went Out One Morning (Bob Dylan cover)
- Kingdom of Ice
