Edmund's Crown

Greg Pope: Guitars, Vocals
David Sprouse: Drums
John Putnam: Bass Guitar, Background Vocals

"It's a fairly simple story. It's July of 1999, and two twenty-somethings are in a Mexican restaurant, bemoaning the current state of rock music. By meal's end, a pact was made to put together a band to solve this dilemma - and thus (give or take a few practice years to perfect a sound) Edmund's Crown was born. This Nashville-based trio released a 7-song EP in February, 2000, and then released a full-length eponymous effort in 2002. Collected is a compilation of the best songs from those two previous efforts, along with two new additional tracks. If smooth, modern guitar-driven power pop is your thing, this is as good as it gets - this CD is "all killer, no filler." Greg Pope (guitars, lead vocals) has a knack for writing the kind of infectious hook-laden ear candy that goes down easily and lasts long after the disc has stopped spinning these three-to-four minute gems. Several of these songs already have made their way onto soundtracks of various television shows (Dawson's Creek, America's Next Top Model, Providence) and it's no great surprise. The three young men who comprise Edmund's Crown are accomplished musicians who take great care to get the details right. When (Pope and drummer David Sprouse) met that fateful day in 1999 and discussed their disenchantment with modern music, they knew they could do better. They have. Pope's songs are melodic and memorable, and the group presents them through arrangements that keep the music both fresh and accessible. In the end, the listener has only to sit back and succumb to the smoothness of the sounds, the harmonies, the musicianship, the nuances and hooks and insightful lyrics.
