Jonathan Edwards (born July 28, 1946) is an American singer-songwriter and musician best known for his 1971 hit single "Sunshine". Jonathan Edwards was born John Evan Edwards on July 28, 1946 in Aitkin, Minnesota, United States. At the age of six, he moved with his family to Virginia where he grew up. At the age of eight, he began singing in church and learning to play piano by ear. While attending military school, he began playing guitar and composing his own songs.

Jonathan Edwards is the first album by the singer-songwriter Jonathan Edwards. The album received some mainstream attention thanks to the catchy political-pop single, "Sunshine". Athens County" was recorded under the title "Sweet Maria (Athens County)" by the Montana bluegrass group Mission Mountain Wood Band in 1977 for their first album, In Without Knocking. The song "Shanty" is used as the "Friday Song" on various "classic rock" FM radio stations; played at various times every Friday, it represents the unofficial start of the weekend. The song "Sunshine" was used in a Jeep commercial, and was also featured on the soundtrack for the film Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.

Jonathan Edwards is a work of unpretentious folk-pop, with touches of bluegrass and old-time country that give it regional flavor. Edwards’ light, slightly drawling tenor and poetic lyric sensibility make his music easy to like and often hard to forget. Much of the material has a bucolic feel, with Athens County, Cold Snow and Dusty Morning conjuring up scenes from the American heartland. It’s fair to say that Jonathan Edwards’ claim to fame as a recording artist rests upon Sunshine, the hit tune found on his 1971 debut album. But this feisty number - a personal declaration of independence set to a ringing acoustic guitar line - isn’t the only highlight on this song collection. Jonathan Edwards is a work of unpretentious folk-pop, with touches of bluegrass and old-time country that give it regional flavor.

Singer-songwriter Jonathan Edwards released this charming debut record in 1971. The album gained some mainstream attention thanks to the catchy political-pop single "Sunshine. Featuring rustic, acoustic-based ballads, and up-tempo numbers like "Train of Glory," Edwards's warm, gentle voice was surrounded by a group of empathic musicians collectively known as Orphan. I've been a music junkie for decades, but until recently I had never heard this entire album, one that includes "Sunshine. From that perspective, this was not a beloved classic that brought back tons of memories, but a brand new listening experience. Overall, I found this to be a very pleasant, tuneful set of songs, very much typical of the folk and pop music that was popular in the early 1970s, somewhat like a croas between James Taylor and John Prine, but perhaps not quite as impressive as either of those two legends.
