Live on FM and worldwide


Soul Beauty Vol. 1 was the first album from composer/musician Jason “Spanky” Edwards released 2008. The Brooklyn-born Washingtonian began learning instruments at an early age (which he plays on the album). Having had training in the jazz, classical, funk, soul, and rock idioms, Edwards also began studying West African and Afro-Carribean percussion. Soul Beauty Vol. 1 contains a blend of these styles as well as featuring many talented artists from the Like Mindz collective – a hip-hop band he spent four years as the drummer of.

Since his first album he’s been keepin busy writing new material.  Soul Beauty Vol. 2 The Love EP (released 3rd May) is a culmination of love songs he says he had written over the past several years. Surprisingly they’ve been sat in the proverbial vault ever since, as he had nobody to sing them, then he got bored and decided to just sing them himself. Im glad he did or we might never has got to hear it! Spanky’s consious lyrics work well over his well crafted live sound, sometime hard hitting and sometimes layed can get the entire 10-track album, along with a hidden track and FREE BONUS MATERIAL (artwork, liner notes and more).. available now on his bandcamp page now
