Who is Ed Bentley? Now there’s a question that comes up more and more lately, as the new generation of Country and Rockabilly fans keeps evolveing. The answer in short… Ed Bentley is a rockin’ country/rockabilly singer/songwriter…
Some of you may know that late in 2004, Ed was inducted into the Rockabilly Hall of Fame. www.rockabillyhall.com/edbentley Having been away from the music scene for over 20 years, at that time, it wasn’t hard for him to understand how Rip Van Winkle must have felt when he woke up. Wow, had everything changed!!! The music itself, the technology, the artists, and I guess to a certain extent, Ed Bentley. His induction was the needed spark, and before long he was back performing and writing country songs. Ed soon realized that writing was what he had missed most of all.
“Who Needs Jamaica”? is his second CD since, “being back”, and these are songs Ed has written or co-written over the last couple of years with some of Nashville’s finest talent. Some of these songs are currently being pitched to some of Nashville’s biggest acts. www.edbentleymusic.com
