I Mother Earth hasn’t been a full-time proposition for any of the guys in the band for a number of years. While the band is still an entity, life intruded on all the members, all of whom now have full-time day jobs.
Singer Brian Byrne, for example, works at Live 105, an alt-rock radio station in Halifax.
Edwin, the original lead singer, briefly popped up in band called Crash Karma, who had some success a couple of years ago.
Now, though I Mother Earth has come up on the 20th anniversary of their second album, Scenery and Fish and wants to do something special. Edwin was the singer on the album—it would be cool if he were available—but he was off doing his own thing.
Brian had his radio gig. So what happened?
The band called up Edwin who agreed to give things a go one more time. It’ll be interesting to see how this plays out over the summer.
