Thomas Edison's final words were, "it's very beautiful over there.” Edison is an alt/folk trio hailing from Colorado that strives to bring beauty to their audiences through layered harmonies, tribal drumming and mandolin. Fronted by Sarah Slaton, with multi-instrumentalist, Dustin Morris, and GRAMMY-nominated guitarist, Maxwell Hughes (formerly of The Lumineers).
Within a year of its inception, Edison has toured with Iron & Wine and landed support slots for Jon Foreman (of Switchfoot) and Nathaniel Rateliff & The Nightsweats. The band has spent 2015/16 on the road including stops by Daytrotter Sessions, CMJ Music Marathon and time off to write in the Arizona desert and the Chesapeake Bay.
