Bio

A rootsy singer/songwriter with ties to jazz and soul as well, Edwin McCain hails from Charleston, South Carolina, and it was with the support of native sons Hootie & the Blowfish that McCain initially signed to a label. Let it not be said that McCain never earned his contract: his touring schedule was among the most rigorous in music -- 300-plus nights per year -- and his dynamic band (anchored by lead guitarist Larry Chaney) gained respect and support slots for similarly minded artists like Hootie, Jewel, and even the Allman Brothers. Signed to Atlantic's Lava subsidiary in 1995, the group debuted with Honor Among Thieves. The single "Solitude" gained support at VH1, prompting the release of 1997's Misguided Roses, which launched a mainstream hit in the song "I'll Be." Messenger followed in 1999 with another love-themed Top 40 success, "I Could Not Ask for More," and Far from Over appeared two years later. McCain quickened his recording pace during the early 2000s, releasing The Austin Sessions in 2003 and Scream & Whisper in 2004. Keeping up with his relentless touring schedule through the years, the live video set Tinsel and Tap Shoes: Live at the House of Blues appeared in late 2004. McCain's next studio effort, Lost in America, was issued in April 2006 on Vanguard. Nationwide tour dates continued through spring and summer. McCain's next album, 2008's Nobody's Fault But Mine, featured a collection of R&B cover songs led by the single "Some Kind of Wonderful." His tenth studio album, 2011's Mercy Bound, relied on original tunes written and performed with fellow singer/songwriter Maia Sharp. ~ John Bush
