Like their namesake, Edison strives for invention and passion in the music they create. Their hard-driving sound is roots-based and organic, yet earsplitting. Edison celebrates an ever-endangered brand of underground rock-n-roll spirit. In an era in which much of modern rock has devolved into digitized pre-fab anger management, Edison understands that a thorny dose of raw emotion, searing imagery, and fully developed sonic arrangements are the wellspring from which true cutting edge music flows. Edison is a combination of raw talent, musical education, and on-the-road experience, with vocalist Ethan Isaac, guitarist Joel Kelley, drummer Todd Budich, and bassist Martin Delahaye. Both Isaac and Kelley got their start in the upstate NY music scene, Isaac with rock band Wooden, and Kelley with High Tower. Drummer Budich hails from Berklee College of Music, adding a formal education to a band rife with natural musical ability and passion. Delahaye’s previous band, 202, was signed to Sony Records, and has toured extensively in South America, opening for bands including Ozzy Osbourne, Marilyn Manson and Incubus. Delahaye has also recorded with different artists on over ten albums for record labels such as Sony, BMG and EMI-Virgin. Most recently, Delahaye recorded bass tracks for Lil Wayne’s upcoming album Edison has gained a sound reputation both internationally and domestically. The popularity of the band is skyrocketing, with widespread press from the Wall Street Journal, ABC World News Tonight with Charles Gibson, Rolling Stone, Billboard, Pollstar, The NY Post, and Fuse. In the past two years, Edison has toured extensively in Europe and Australia. In 2006, the band recorded an EP, Seven, that produced several critically acclaimed singles, including "Ocean Waves," which received airplay on college and commercial radio stations throughout various markets, from Woodstock's own WDST, to Albany's beacon rock station, WHRL. In May 2009, Edison released Bullet Proof Wings and the tracks are already receiving airplay. Over the summer the band will again tour Europe and included in their schedule is an opening gig for American rock band, Hinder. Edison keeps things fresh by creating timeless, message-driven songs free from the formulaic trappings of copycat pop iconography. Their music is vital and essential, and hibernating fanatics might just be convinced to crawl back out of their burrows and restore rock-n-roll to its rightful place.
