“This debut outing reveals a mature acoustic guitarist who is unnecessarily modest about his well-refined craft… The tone is elegiac…one hears surrender to the allure of the instrument, all in itself.”
– Review of Rooted by Minor 7th magazine, January 2009
Edward Hamlin’s music has appeared on three CDs and has been used in the soundtracks of two short films. He composes primarily for fingerstyle guitar, in a range of altered tunings. While in his twenties and thirties he played in several Chicago electric blues bands, once playing (Born Under a Bad Sign) for a crowd of 400,000 gathered in Chicago’s Grant Park for Venetian Night.
