Edward David Anderson
Edward David Anderson
Edward David Anderson is an American songwriter and rock & roll veteran who spent his formative years fronting the revered Midwest band, Backyard Tire Fire. Known for infectious melodies and memorable messages he penned 8 albums for the band and played countless shows across the US and Canada.
Since their hiatus in 2011 EDA has continued to write and tour as a solo artist. His delivery in the live setting is both dynamic and impactful showcasing a natural prowess on banjo, acoustic/cigar box guitars and foot percussion. He defines his sound as Black Dirt Music. "Songs about people and places, about life and love and loss. It's roots music, cultivated in the fertile soil of the Midwest."

His 2014 debut, Lies & Wishes (produced by Steve Berlin of Los Lobos) was lauded "a supurb solo effort” by No Depression while David Dye (NPR World Cafe) praised Lower Alabama: The Loxley Sessions as "a wonderfully soulful record."

Poised to release his newest collection of songs, EDA made the album that's been on his mind for some time now. “I've always wanted to make a record in Muscle Shoals. But it needed to be the right batch of songs with the right people,” he recalls. And Chasing Butterflies is just that. A beautifully crafted recording of a writer in his prime.

Look for Chasing Butterflies out on Black Dirt Records October 19th.
