Rock and roll with a purpose, Rambler kicks off with the smoldering title track about abolitionist Frederick Douglass and ends with Justified, an undeniable heart-wrencher dealing with the tragedy of genocide. This release on Departure Records finds the band utilizing their musicianship to convey the energy and imagery that only solid songwriting can produce. In the realm of alt-country, southern-rock, and blues this is a record that physically impacts you while resonating intellectually. Edgehill Avenue is a 5 piece rock and roll band from Louisville, Kentucky steeped in the roots of American music that draws comparisons to The Black Crowes, Ryan Adams, The Allman Brothers, Tom Petty, and Bruce Springsteen. Growing from the initial duo of Drew Perkins and 'Hurricane' Mike McLaughlin the band added John Poole on bass and Lamont 'Phatbeat' Melson and recorded an acoustic sounding self-titled demo EP in February of 2007. After playing nearly everywhere and anywhere in 2007 and 2008 the band added Paul Nevitt on keyboards and signed with Louisville's Departure Records to record the full-length and full on rock and roll record, Rambler. Rambler finds the band building upon the success of their initial release in Feb 2007, a self-titled EP that was primarily meant as a demo but one that exceeded those expectations garnering airplay, favorable reviews and surprising sales. Rambler sees the band move from their acoustic roots to a more mature and rock-oriented sound drawn from their rigorous live schedule over the past 2 years. Produced by William Bartley and Nick Stevens at Downtown Recording this album continues in the vein of what Louisville Music News dubbed as "Americana music done right and well"!
