Who would have thought...
...a guy from agricultural Nebraska to be so solid in music composition
and arrangements astounding. I think it has a lot to do with the company we keep, play along, and persist beyond odds.

For those that remember "art rock" and laced with beautiful jazz improvisation on a new bent, you'll be suprised at the compilation.
SWIM takes some listens to and very much worth the while. Kudos

I have listened to 'Not Everyone Who Wanders Is Lost' over and over and it is haunting and beautiful. This CD is full of heart and sincerity. You get a true sense of how romantic, as well as spiritual, Meradith is.
There are great vocals and killer guitar playing on these songs.

Ohh..so THAT'S what eclectic means!
Where to begin?It is obvious that Ed is seeking his muse on this CD which will delight his core fans and befuddle those who only know him as a skilled jazz pianist.It is equally obvious that his muse contact has been spiritual phone tag.This album goes everywhere.Proof?Well take a smidgeon of spoken word in english as performed by a non english speaking person.A little ambiance ala Robbie Robertson during the "Crazy River"days.And a chorus line straight outta Yes circa '72.Got that?Thats all in the first song!
Along the way he takes you to his surf king side.His soft hand and hard lyric side.A dash of sonic tremble here..damn.Brian Wilson would love this.
Check out cut 12 in particular.This has serious commercial potential.And that might be by accident as a labor of love such as this is done to educate.A higher calling not formed for filthy lucre.
Best reason to purchase?Cool factor.And this one gives that without one iota of stereotype.Just lots of good stereo.
Wake up Boston!This guy rules!

A Disc with a View
A really nice blend of gravitas and humor. If it's true that no one listens to albums anymore in this age of iPods and downloads, this CD suggests that maybe they should. And while the average listener may be challenged by the diversity of influences here, the view at the top is amazing. If you buy just one CD this year, buy this one.

Whatever happened to this Music???
Wonderful collection of ballads and theartrical music. I particularly enjoyed "Romance", very light hearted and fun to listen to. "The Swim Hole" is a itty bitty opera crammed into under 12 minutes but missing nothing. I'd say buy it if you are looking for something different and intelligent.

"Swimming with the Fishies"
"Swim" is a phenominal first effort from Ed Meradith! It will take you on a time travel from 70's laced "Art Rock"...(think "Abbey Road" mixed with David Bowie, Brian Wilson & Yes), to Contemporary Urban/Blues/Pop. There are so many songs that get stuck in your head it's amazing! Ed's songwriting ability is exquisite, and I highly suggest you purchase this one! Superior songwriters like this need your love and support!

like a dip in champagne: a refreshing buzz
Ed Meradith has always been an incredible and distinctive songwriter. His songs are unique and evocative and always fun to listen to. 'To the Moon', one of Ed's art songs is particularly gorgeous melodically with a lovely chorus that segues into 'Timeswim' another great tune that's like nothing you've heard before with sweet strings and beautiful Beach Boyesque harmonies.'Fun Turns to Tragedy' is an acoustic guitar gypsy ballad with great lyrics and wonderful melodic twists and turns.The albums HIT song that keeps popping into my head 'Not Everyone Who Wanders Is Lost'is a love song with a chorus stays with you like all great pop tunes. Each song features Ed's excellent keyboard and guitar playing and his singing is great too. I highly recommend this album. A unique listening experience you'll want to return to again and again.
