It has been almost two years since Edwin released his stunning solo debut, 'Another Spin Around The Sun;' two years which saw constant touring, numerous awards and widespread critical accolades for this 1999 release. With 'Edwin & The Pressure,' Edwin reemerges with a revitalized new band and a triumphant sophomore album. The record captures his new bandıs burning intensity and driving beats and combines them with his instantly enticing vocal stylings and undeniable melodies.

'Edwin & The Pressure' is instantly captivating, cool, powerful, emotive and intense. From the slamming first single, "Superhoney" to the infectious "Firecracker," to the orchestral atmosphere of "High" and "Malibu Sunset," Edwin's voice links each and carries the listener on a dynamic musical ride.

Edwin embarked on a solo career in 1997, following his time spent with Canadian band I Mother Earth. It was after two albums and countless sold-out tours that Edwin decided to move on. Edwin's split from I Mother Earth left fans and media buzzing.

Edwin's solo debut 'Another Spin Around The Sun' is now approaching double Platinum Certification in Canada. The album spawned the hit singles "Trippin," "Hang Ten," "And You," "Alive," and "Rush." One of the major highlights from 'Another Spin Around The Sun, was the colossal success of the hit single "Alive." This track entrenched Edwin at Top 40 radio and the video was a tremendous success.

Edwin is renowned not only for his hit songs, but also for his creative videos. The video for "Hang Ten" received a 1999 MuchMusic Video Award (MMVA) in the category of "Best Rock Video." Edwin won "People's Choice: Favourite Canadian Artist" at the 2000 MuchMusic Video Awards (MMVA) and "Best Video" at the 2001 Juno Awards for the "Alive" video.

With the release of 'Edwin & The Pressure' Edwin has created a rock record that is full of complex elements while still dazzling in its simplicity. It hits the listener with melodies that are undeniable and songs drenched in good vibes. "These are songs you can jump along to and most importantly sing along to. That's the biggest challenge. If you can't sing along, it isn't a good song," concludes Edwin.
