Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

SHOCKING EDISON

Scientific Curiosity

2007-01-08

Shocking Edison hails from Fort Myers, Florida, the same town that Thomas Edison had his Winter home and laboratory. Like the inventor, Shocking Edison weaves a variety of influences into innovations that are more than the sum of their parts. The band members approach the music from different aspects of life, and are ever-evolving. Their musical influences range from street punk to opera, from ska to Zappa, from Rush to Phish, and from Little Feat to, crazily enough, musical theater. This is not one of a thousand other bands. Shocking Edison features solid rhythms, thoughtful lyrics, melodic harmonies and fullfilling hooks. A distinctive dichotomy between the female and male vocals highlights the fun and theatrical nature of the group. –CD Baby .com
