What they're saying...

"Even major songwriters today whose songs have sold thousands upon thousands of records would read Ed Smaron's words and hang their heads in shame." -- Noise from 94      **Read the entire review of 2012's "Atheist Blonde"

"Ed is a huge talent, a very funny man with a gift for subversive humor and astounding applied musical improvisation." -- Chicago, IL

"Runs the gamut from no-regret tributes to life's foibles to fiery protest songs, played with high energy..." --Hammond, IN
