A. Lee Edwards was a member of Chocolate U.S.A., Bar None Records, in NYC and Athens GA, along with Julian Koster, before forming Lou Ford in Charlotte with his brother Chad Edwards in 1995. Lou Ford Released 3 albums beginning with Sad, but familiar in ’97, ‘Alan Freed’s Radio’ in ’99 and ‘Poor Man’s Soul’, after reforming in 2007. Lou Ford disbanded in 2009 and the Edwards brothers formed the Loudermilks. The Loudermilks released their self-titled debut Album in 2014 and their followup ‘Monument’ in 2016. A. Lee Edwards is currently working on his first solo album. The Edwards Brothers also perform as a duo.“…sounds like the product of a childhood spent listening to a cool aunt or uncle’s well-worn copies of Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, The Gilded Palace Of Sin and Exile On Main Street…”, wrote No Depression Magazine. Lou Ford later disbanded and Alan and Chad formed the Loudermilks. The Edwards’ “strength has always been avoiding country rock’s clichés while remaining true to its tenets and slipping in punk-inspired defiance”, wrote Creative Loafing. The Edwards Brothers music has been described as “recorded more in sepia, than in stereo.” These songs sound as if they’ve always been.
