Former Candlelight Red guitarist Jeremy Edge has just signed with Deko Entertainment for his new project, the Jeremy Edge Project, which will be releasing its self-titled debut on August 28th – available for streaming and download, as well as all major online outlets on CD and Limited Edition Vinyl. Deko Entertainment president Bruce Pucciarello states, “Smoothest axe and a complex rediscovery of the bluesy genre that serves as the foundation of all rock. Jeremy is here to let us know how we are going to drive that car in 2020. Top down, radio playing the perfect tune. Crank it up baby…here he goes…”
After 4 top 50 Active Rock singles with CLR, he is breaking a long hiatus by releasing an album that is a departure stylistically with more blues based, guitar based rock. According to Edge, this project has been brewing for a while and came by accident as personnel changes mid-recording session prompted him to make some tough choices about moving forward and finishing the record as a solo artist.
To get the album over the finish line, he decided to do some of the vocals himself for the first time, and enlisted the help of friends to complete the vocal compositions as well as adding more new players to contribute to the project.
“I always liked what Santana did years ago with using different singers and I love collaboration projects like ‘Postmodern Jukebox,’ so this was a fun an exciting idea for an album.”
The album features 9 tracks – varying from bluesy and soulful ballads to in your face rock grooves with blazing guitar. This album was recorded and mixed by Grammy nominated engineer Mike Feretti in Ringwood, NJ – who has also worked with him in the past with Candlelight Red.
