Having spent many years as a journalist and music writer, Mark Edwards decided to put himself in the critical firing line by recording his first album as a musical artist in his own right.
Balance is aimed at a niche market of music-lovers who are looking for something a little more cerebral and stripped-down than most of the over-produced fare that comprises the mainstream. Revelling in the low-fi soundscapes offered by arcane and often vintage instruments and studio equipment, he created an album that demands attention – and got it. ‘The Sun’ said: “’You Have Burnt A Bridge’ is reminiscent of Air with its fuzzy, light keyboard refrain while ‘Look’ is much darker, a wordless Blade Runner soundscape. Edwards is making great music that will test people’s perceptions.”
