Edge of Free Interview
Scott Sneddon joins me on Revelator #217 to talk about the band’s latest single “Pony” and self titled album release.
Scott and I cover a wide range of topics including his musical past, deep cuts off the album and the selection of Toby Wright to help produce the album.
Edge Of Free is modern rock with a combination of acoustic riffs, heavy guitars and heart-felt lyrics that are both melodic and hard-hitting. Their songs of addiction, love, loss, and survival, are delivered with the passion that can only come from someone who has lived it. Produced by Toby Wright (Alice In Chains, Korn, Tantric, Metallica) Edge Of Free’s debut, self-titled album is an intimate collection of honest songs powered by guitarist John Hussey’s dynamic music and singer Scott Sneddon’s dark melodies, soaring choruses, and gut wrenching lyrics about depression, drug addiction and recovery.
With disarming honesty, songs like “Blood Eagle,” “Pushin’ The Needle,” and ﬁrst single “Pony,” the listener can hear and almost experience the tumble into depression and other struggles that Sneddon faced as they frequently reveal themselves in the tone and lyrical content of the record.
“On this record I composed all the music and Scott wrote all the melodies and Lyrics” explains Hussey. “Producer Toby Wright (Alice In Chains, Korn, Tantric, Metallica) made some adjustments in the rhythm section that brought out the best groove under the guitar riffs. We are so glad we chose Toby - the collaboration has been killer!”
