Edison Herbert

Edison Herbert is a gifted and melodic guitarist based in the UK. He started playing the piano as a young boy encouraged by his parents. He studied classical piano at Yorkshire College of Music. At that time he was attracted to the guitar and he began teaching himself to play. He gained valuable experience  performing at church with small gospel groups and choirs. His passion for the guitar resulted in further studies at The Guildhall School Of Music and Drama where he performed with The Guildhall Big Band featuring Randy Brecker at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club.

Musician, composer, arranger and bandleader. Edison wrote arrangements for the Olivier award nominated West End musical “Unforgettable” and was M.D  on the international tours. He composed  music for BBC Radio 4 drama “Spell Number Seven” and has performed with The Jazz Warriors, Rose Royce and Kim Burrell and various other artists.

Edison’s trio features Neville Malcolm one of the most in demand bass players in the UK and best British Jazz Awards drummer for 2020 Winston Clifford. In 2015 Edison was sponsored by the Arts Council to tour with their first album “My Favourite Tunes vol 1”. A second album “All I Need” has been recorded and is due to be released.

Edison took part in the Sky Arts series Guitar Star. He performed one of his original compositions for mentor George Benson. After his performance George Benson said “You played the cr*p out of that brother.” “I really enjoyed your playing, You’re one of the few cats who can make that thing sound so good.” George Benson has continued to be a friend and mentor. Singer songwriter Lianne La Havas jammed with Edison. She quoted “I corresponded to Edison’s voicings on the guitar. I enjoyed jamming with him. He’s mega talented”.

Edison’s new project ‘Glad You Came’ will soon be performing his blend of Jazz, pop, soul, reggae and funk. Exciting music coming your way in 2020.

 

You’re one of the few cats who can make that thing sound so good.”

George Benson
