Toronto singer/songwriter Edward Sayers has just released the first single, “Rose,” from his forthcoming album. “Underdog Overlord” will be available from 24 November; of the new project, Sayers says, “Lyrically the songs deal with struggling in an urban environment, longing for home or seeking a new one. Musically the songs range from folk to all out rock and roll. I’m excited to show people the different sides of my songwriting, and I’m proud to be putting out something that says, this is what I’m about, this is what I do.”
Born and raised in Oil Springs, Ontario (near Sarnia) and now living in Toronto, singer and songwriter Edward Sayers creates innovative rock music, folk-rock music that is, blending folk, blues and country with rock and roll structure. He released an EP ‘Pax Romana’ in January 2014.
Edward has played extensively in Toronto, strumming his way through venues like Sneaky Dee’s and Lee’s Palace, and in 2015, held a residency at The Corner House in Toronto’s east end, where he hosted and performed a weekly evening of original music. He has toured steadily across Ontario and on Canada’s east coast, playing in cities like Ottawa, Halifax and Charlottetown.
