Edge of the World

BandAlternativeAdult Contemporary

Todd Helvig and Edge of the World are the new faces of alternative contemporary music. A brotherhood devoted to music, Todd, Josh, and Charlie push their acoustic-folk-jazz-fusion to the limit. Crisp, clear, and honest, EOTW's rhythm and harmony create a sound that is as unique as it is timeless.

Biography

In the beginning there was the solo singer/songwriter (Todd Helvig) peddling through the local coffee shops and bookstores. Charlie (Keys, Trumpet) hit a Helvig gig at the local tavern (Cricket on the Hill) where Todd was playing, and the two conspired to build a project. When Josh Williamson (Drums) joined on a few months later, EOTW became official. Interestingly, all of the guys in the band were skilled musicians in their formative years. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it), life took them each down roads that swept them away from music only to have them drift back again. Now, a little wiser for the wear, the guys of EOTW are committed to their new perspective, fresh vibe, and unique sense of sound. It's folksy, singer/songwriter meets acoustic rock 'n rhythm with full-on jazz/contemporary-alternative stylings.

If you've been diligently praying for a Clay Aiken/Ting Ting tour to stop in your town, you might not be ready for EOTW; Dave Matthews & O.A.R....possibly. In fact, if you crave emotive, thoughtful, and musically independent songwriting as an extension of your own journey, EOTW is your new favorite band.

Performing Live along the front range of the Rockies, there's only one reason to check out EOTW: The honest craft of music. Not easily defined, but easily identified, EOTW raises the bar for independent music everywhere.
