Biography

In a way, Edwin McCain began sowing the seeds of Mercy Bound, his tenth album and debut for 429 Records, seven years ago. The songs comprising Mercy Bound are the fruits of an on-again, off-again collaboration with fellow singer/songwriter Maia Sharp that began in 2004 with their lovely duet “Say Anything.” Since co-writing and tracking that song, McCain and Sharp have kept up ...

Editorial Reviews

Lost In America is the new studio album from platinum-selling singer/songwriter Edwin McCain. Recorded in the new OMG Studios McCain co-owns in his hometown of Greenville, South Carolina, and produced by Noel Golden (Matchbox Twenty, Lee Ann Womack), Lost In America is McCain's stellar debut on Vanguard Records. With a harder rock sound than on previous albums but still catchy and melodic, McCain wrote or co-wrote nearly all the songs on the album.

3.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat disappointing April 17, 2006
By D. Ward
Format:Audio CD
First, let me say that I am a huge Edwin fan, and have been so since I first heard Solitude. I've been to about 10 shows and have every CD. Having said that, this CD isn't really doing it for me. It doesn't have the same Bluesy, soul, southern rock feel that most of their other work has had. To me, it'a more of a rock CD, verging, at times, on being very heavy. I still plan on seeing Edwin here in KC,MO on 5/9, but probably won't be looking forward to hearing too many songs off this disc. Hopefully with the next CD, Edwin and the guys will get back to their roots.

5.0 out of 5 stars GROWTH & DIVERSITY OF A MATURING ARTIST June 19, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first became interested in Edwin Mc Cain's music after purchasing the "Austin Sessions". A very intimate and quite different body of work from this CD although both are equally compelling. "Lost in America" is quality rock with a superb blend of driving beats and intelligent lyrics. The title song and "Gramercy Park Hotel" exemplify this in particular; but there is not a weak song in the entire collection.

I believe Mr.Mc Cain stays true to his fans by staying true to his self. That is captured in the obvious enthusiasm of the music. I am eager to discover where he goes from hear. Much praise for a fine piece of work. The band and production are also superb.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lost in America ROCKS!!! Great EMB CD... AGAIN!!! June 14, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Is this a different than the other Edwin CD's? Yes. But if you realllly look at the previous ones, they are always a little different. I have to say that following the path Edwin takes with this awesome band of his has always been a treat. Waiting in anticipation of each new CD has been such fun. NEVER does this guy... this band... disappoint.

So very glad to finally get a great version of My Mystery on this one! LOVE it. Some may say that song isn't a typical EM song, but then what IS typical? IF you want I'LL BE and/or I COULD NOT ASK FOR MORE... no, it isn't the same. But we HAVE those songs. You will LOVE these, too.

While it's true that Edwin didn't write every one of these songs, I have to say that of the ones he co-wrote and the ones by his band mates... they are "sooooo Edwin!" I think that's a compliment to the members of EMB who are writing with and for Edwin. It shows they are so perfectly matched. Maybe it's also that talent he as for making any song his own. As you know, we all tend to love the original of songs... no matter what. But I'd say most people that have ever heard Edwin's version of Romeo and Juliet will say that isn't true of Edwin McCain. He can take ANYone's song and put that EMB spin on it and it's better than the original! Not many musicians can do that.

I'd have to say my favorite is TRULY BELIEVE. There goes that songwriting again. The lyrics just can't help but make you smile every time you hear them! ANDDDDDD the music is just the amazing. When we saw him do this song at HOB in Chicago, he was singing with all his might... veins sticking out of his neck... WOW! I told my husband, "Edwin's singing it just like I do in the car ... ALONE." :) THE KISS is another one of my favorites. And BLACK & BLUE is amazing.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Cure for Home Sickness June 9, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I think that this album is one of is best. All of his music is superb, but this one to me is great. I'm currently in the Army stationed in Iraq, but when I listen to this album, I feel as if I'm at home, even if it is for a short time.

Accessories to this album should be a hot grill with burgers and hot dogs, a cold beverage, and lots of friends.

LOVE Edwin McCain. I have been going to his concerts since he was a no name and love him just as much now as I did back then. He is a wonderful person on and off stage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Expressive November 1, 2007
Format:Audio CD
The album and the content are both lyrically and musically superb. If I were to have a complaint it would be that the recording was pushed to, and in some cases past the point of clipping. Listener fatigue was present. Other that that, I hope this collection of great music surpassed the bands' expectations. Great job guys!

...and definately not "old style" Edwin McCain. Only "Losing Tonight" is remeniscent. Seems he's trying to break out of a mold but loosing that old attraction a bit.
