Edisons were formed in late 2011, as a vehicle for the combined material of singer songwriters Fran King & Pete Fagan. Both songwriters have cut their teeth on the live circuit in Ireland, and further afield, over the past 15 years, releasing several acclaimed solo albums in their own right. Their debut album together "Little Bohemia", chronicles the life and times of John Dillinger, the notorious depression era bank robber, from the American Mid - West. True to the subject matter, it contains no electric instrumentation, instead the band rely on Acoustic guitars, mandolins, Dobro's, Upright Bass, drums, piano, violins, harmonium .. Oh and Ukulele, set against wonderful vocal arrangements, and featuring the Badlands choir. Both Fran & Pete believe the real stars of the show are the songs.
"Little Bohemia" has been described as an organic audio collection of tunes, that bridge the gaps between folk hero & outlaw. Coloured by the back drop of the Great Depression,
to paint the real story of love, loss, joy & sorrow, of a genuine American legend.
