A collaboration of a few eclectic individuals who pay their homage to one of the greatest inventors of all time. It is the strong belief of this outfit that Mr. Edison himself had very refined tastes and often enjoyed the musical stylings of well crafted Noise Pop; guitars, organs, megaphones and tambourines a plenty.
Self proclaimed, Seattle hipst-nerds, the band is: Dominic Terrence Overman (a white guy who likes hot dogs), Andrea Koval (a chick from NJ), and Tristan Beedon (didn't he live in Boston once?) Edison Orange is a combination of indie, punk, 80s glam rock, dirty folk music, and 90s brit pop.
Andrea Koval - Guitar, Harmonica, tamborine, Megaphone
Tristan Beedon - Bass Guitar
Dominic Overman - Drums, Percussion
June 2010 Edison Orange, full length album
October 2010 "Sweet Spot", single
November 2010 "Jazz Trance", "The Promise of a Good Life", and "A Picture of a Saturday", singles
A smart guy said this about us:
" I have not had a chance to let you know how blown away I was by your CD. Please don't tell me that is your first CD - it is just too good to be a first effort. You have amazing talent; you've got to keep using it, learning and growing in it - it would be a shame (no, a sin!) if you didn't.

About a minute in, a certain No Doubt flavor (including horns) kicks in, and Edison Orange's mission statement is made pretty clear. This is about alternative music, man, not that lame indie pap. This is the music the badass girl would blare from her car stereo in the '90s teen movie. It is the kind of music that Janeane "Evian is ‘naïve' backwards" Garofalo would like, well, anytime. Sometimes it gets loud, but there's a sweet underbelly to Edison Orange that begs to be adored by a teenage badass - if one still exists.
