L.A. Edwards (Luke Andrew Edwards) is an American singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Julian, CA.

Formed in 2015 as a solo project after his tenure with the Smart Brothers, L.A.E. has recorded and released two studio albums. Backed by his band of brothers, he has toured extensively in the U.S. and Europe.

2015’s self-recorded Secrets We’ll Never Know marked L.A.E.'s departure from his traditional folk/acoustic roots to a rock band sound reminiscent of many of his childhood influences (CCR, Jackson Browne, Tom Petty, and the Beach Boys). Releasing the EP independently, L.A.E. began touring the West Coast with his brother Jerry on drums. The duo performed in breweries, dive bars, and living rooms from San Diego to Vancouver, Canada while honing their live sound and gathering material for a full length recording.

L.A.E. returned to the studio in 2017 to record what would become True Blue. Produced by Ron Blair (bassist of Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers), L.A.E. cut the album live in Blair’s home studio with his brothers Jay and Jerry. True Blue expanded on Edwards previous EP, moving him towards a more fully realized, classic rock sound with electric guitars, Hammond B3 organ, and steady backbeats. The album would produce the singles “Louisiana” and “Leaving Los Angeles.” Upon the record’s release in April 2018, L.A.E. and his five-piece band toured heavily in the two years to follow, building to larger stages and audiences of sold out festivals and theaters across the US. The True Blue tour grew to include appearances with the Beach Boys, the White Buffalo, Jefferson Starship, and Amanda Shires, along with sets at Pilgrimage Festival in Nashville and Bumbershoot in Seattle.

“True Blue is a record I’m proud of. The songs are soulful, the playing was live and fresh! It wasn’t long before Luke was running the show, so I got out of the way. That’s really what a producer does, let other people work, and then take the credit for it! Did I mention, I love these guys...”-Ron Blair, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers

The band came off the road in early 2020 to write and record their next album, Blessings From Home, produced by Ryan Hadlock (Lumineers, Vance Joy, Foo Fighters) at legendary Bear Creek Studios in Woodinville, WA. The album further builds on the band’s expansion into the lush rock sound implemented on True Blue, while returning to the folk roots of L.A.E.’s upbringing and early career. Backed up once again by brothers Jay and Jerry, L.A.E. also recruited Ron Blair and Steve Ferrone (Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers) as his rhythm section. Blessings From Home is being released in two installments, the first being released in December of 2020 and the second due for release in Spring 2021.

“flat out amazing” -No Depression

“it marries the rock worldliness of Petty with the rootsy warmth and wisdom of Jackson Browne and Neil Young. Luscious Southernite yarns, realized under the West Coast sun” -Classic Rock Magazine

"lyrical strength and Americana grit" -The Bluegrass Situation

"the kind of sun-kissed Laurel Canyon sound...songwriting that conjures up images of lazy, hazy days and long, warm summer" -Louder Sound
