Since forming in 2014, Colorado’s rising acoustic trio Edison have made touring an absolute priority. “We’ve been on the road nonstop for over a year,” singer/guitarist Sarah Slaton notes in a statement. “We didn’t have a lot of releases out there, so we decided to hit the road and meet as many people as we could and foster those relationships.”

She adds, “We live for the nights that everyone in the room is experiencing the song and everybody’s feeling connected. We just try to remain as open as we can, and invite people to come in.”

Their approach to cultivating a following — somewhat the reverse of what most acts do — has paid off in spades. The band, rounded out by drummer/vocalist Dustin Morris and Grammy-nominated guitarist Maxwell Hughes (formerly of The Lumineers), has formed bonds with audiences all across the US and earned much coveted support slots with the likes of Iron & Wine and Nathaniel Ratliff & the Nightsweats.

Now, having fine-tuned their live show and gained a pretty decent legion of fans, Edison are looking to put out their full-length debut. Entitled Familiar Spirit, it’s due out on September 16th through Rhyme & Reason Records, home to The Suffers and Fiction Plane. Though it’s a proper studio release, the nine-track effort in a way captures exactly what the band’s been doing the last 12 months: bringing music to life.

To preview Familiar Spirit, Edison have shared “The Good Fight”. It’s a potent and poignant number anchored by cozy harmonies and an engaging narrative.

Check it out below.
