Folk powerhouse pair The Small Glories are Cara Luft and JD Edwards, a dynamic Americana duo planted on the Canadian Prairies.
Folk powerhouse pair The Small Glories are Cara Luft and JD Edwards, a dynamic Americana duo planted on the Canadian Prairies. A self-professed "study in contrasts," Luft's folkie yin proves a perfect match for Edwards’ rocker yang. Thrown together purely by accident for an anniversary show at Winnipeg’s venerable West End Cultural Centre, The Small Glories is a partnership that could almost make you believe in fate.
Luft and Edwards are two traveling souls that may have taken a while to finally find each other, but it's damn lucky for us their paths crossed." —Grayowl Point
Straight out of the gate these two veteran singer/songwriters built a buzz around their tight harmonies, authenticity, visceral live performances and equally well-matched guitar prowess that doesn’t come around often. Luft packs a mean banjo as well. The Winnipeg Free Press asks, "can two singer-songwriters be better than one? Yes, emphatically, yes, if the two in question are Cara Luft and JD Edwards... It's our loss they didn't [join forces] sooner... It's magic."
Their 2016 debut album Wondrous Traveler is steeped in classic song structure, delivering instantly appealing melodic Americana with first-rate playing. The album found its way onto many critics' Top 10 lists across North America and Europe, and The Small Glories are finding themselves on stages from Vancouver to London and beyond. Together, Luft and Edwards are a musical tour de force, a case of 1 + 1 = 3.
