Rustic Jonathan Edwards typified the young, folkie troubadours of the early '70s. It's fair to say that Jonathan Edwards' claim to fame as a recording artist rests upon "Sunshine," the hit tune found on his 1971 debut album. But this feisty number — a personal declaration of independence set to a ringing acoustic guitar line — isn't the only highlight in his body of work.

His music is unpretentious folk-pop, with touches of bluegrass and old-time country that give it regional flavor. Edwards' light, slightly drawling tenor and poetic lyric sensibility make his music easy to like and often hard to forget.
