Kevin Lee Edwards Kevin Lee Edwards

In the early 2000s, as an artist/songwriter Kevin Lee Edwards started writing and recording tracks that would become his first digitally released album entitled, “Inner Thoughts Volume 1” released through cdfreedom and iTunes 2 February 2007. Kevin is a native of Chicago Illinois. He has been involved in music from the age of an adolescent playing percussion in his Jr. High School band. Kevin has played music throughout his high school years, as a trombonist in the Manley H.S Jazz Band in Chicago Illinois. He released, “Inner Thought” on his independent label KLE Recordings. The entire project was recording using Cakewalk software Sonar 5, Home Studio Sonar 6; and edited with Adobe Audition 1.5 and 2.0. He used the Korg Triton Le, Micro Korg, Korg M1, and Roland 2020XV as the principle instruments on all of his projects. The Music XPC professional computer is another tool in Kevin’ arsenal, the computer transmitted through a Yamaha MW 12 to complete a sufficient amount of pre-production in his home studio. He performed and composed all original music on his projects.

Kevin is a voting member of the National Academy of Recording Art & Science (NARAS){Grammy}, an active member of the GrammyU and the American Society of Composers, Authors, and & Publishers (ASCAP) programs. Garageband.com awarded Kevin with the track of the day, on 20 June 2007 for his song “Dance with You”

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
