Edwards teases us with his bittersweet lullabies that are soothing in all the right places. The young artist touches on the folky side of alternative rock, also dabbling in electric ambience.

"If you are a fan of clever vocal treatments then you will find a lot to like here"

Musicology - Joshua Palmer
With some acoustic and folksy tendencies in his writing, JW Edwards is here to present you with his debut EP which will no doubt be a cult classic amongst his many fans. Bringing you something that is gripping as well as touching, it will be interesting to see what he has come to produce with six of his own personal creations.
This EP is a great showcase in JW Edwards musical capabilities as he is definitely pushing his own personal boundaries with his creation.
Dancing About Architecture -
If folk music is known for a rawness and honesty and rock music for drama and dynamic, then Hearkened Hands sits at a point where those two worlds collide. Sometimes taking an emotive acoustic stance, sometimes a hypnotic electric wash, it is the meeting of these two styles that creates the fantastic soundscape that JW Edwards inhabits.
Invicta Magazine - Phil Walker
I can’t fault much of the music and vocal melodies on this, as I feel it’s incredibly laid out with a certain melody that shows a lot of emotion in every song played across the whole of Hearkened Hands.
I would definitely recommend to anyone checking out this EP when it drops on March 1st, as I can well believe a lot of people will truly love this as much as I have.
