Edensong's Information

New York, NY

Progressive Rock

About Us:
Edensong was formed by James Byron Schoen in 2002 at Wesleyan University in Connecticut. In its relatively short history, Edensong has gone through multiple lineup changes. Amid shifting personnel, it is James Schoen’s music that forms the core of the Edensong sound. After James’ first group, his high school progressive-metal outfit Echoes of Eden (whose CD "Beneath The Tide" can still be found online by the adept Googler), disbanded in 2000, James spent the following years writing new material and honing his performance with a solo acoustic act. While he enjoyed the intimacy and flexibility of the solo show, he missed the arrangement possibilities and energy of a full rock band performance. By The Fall of 2002, after a few failed attempts at reviving Echoes of Eden, James had a brand new performance concept. With funding from Wesleyan, he mounted “Beyond Eden : A Surrealistic Pseudo Rock-Opera“. The show, which was performed inside a historic Frat-house covered in Astroturf, featured elements of film, theater and dance to augment James’ music: re-workings of material from the EOE days, his solo set and some entirely new songs written for the new lineup, which expanded to include a full-time flautist and violinist, an African Drumming ensemble, and a small choir. This melding of traditional rock instrumentation with elements of classical and world music traditions became the framework of James Schoen’s musical vision, and thus the band known as Edensong was formed. After the final performance of “Beyond Eden,” which managed to get the band some positive local recognition, Edensong continued to play shows, though without the Astroturf and dry ice, over the next few years and began working on "The Fruit Fallen" in the summer of ‘04. After Graduating from Wesleyan in 2005, James was able to devote more time to the band, and Edensong began to expand its fan base, playing shows and festivals throughout the New York area. However, as Edensong began to perform more frequently, there was less time to devote to the production of "The Fruit Fallen". This changed in the Spring of ‘06 when tensions over tour negotiations and extensive travel came to a head, leading to the cancellation of a planned Spring tour with fellow NY-based progressive rock band Astronaut Down, and the dissolution of the whole Edensong roster. James took this period of uncertainty to focus his energy again toward the completion of "The Fruit Fallen". "The Fruit Fallen" was finally completed in October 2007, after being mastered in Orlando, Florida by legendary engineer Bob Katz. "The Fruit Fallen" was released independently in the Summer of 2008. It is currently available on CD, featuring special deluxe packaging and album art (available from CDBaby: and The Laser's Edge:, among others), and is also available for download from a number of online retailers. James is currently negotiating wider distribution and promotion, composing new music for the next release, and working with the next generation of the Edensong lineup. Edensong will hit the stage again in early 2009 and will be featured at Three Rivers Progressive Rock Festival ( in August. The future of Edensong is an open book, so please keep checking back for updates.

Edensong to play 3RP Prog Fest 2009

It’s Official - Edensong to play 3RP 2009! We're thrilled to have been selected to play next year's Three Rivers Progressive Rock Festival in Pittsburgh, PA August 8-9, 2009 at the Pepsi Road House. If this year's festival was any indication, there couldn't be be a place to bring "The Fruit Fallen" to the stage. Edensong joins Phideaux Xavier and many other quality progressive bands (thus far unannounced) for an amazing weekend of music. Phideaux and I had spoken about setting up some shows together in the past, so I'm glad we'll finally get the opportunity to share the stage at the Pepsi Roadhouse. Perhaps we'll be able to put a NY show together as well while PX is in town. Check out the official 3RP website: (though I don't belive Howard has updated with the new festival lineup quite yet). Join the 3RP and Edensong discussion on I'll update this post as some more info becomes available. See you in August! -James

TELL EVERY ONE ABOUT IMRadio -- Got to thinking. What if each of us independent musicians told our family, friends, fans and acquaintances about, how besides the main station, it has stations for each of the states individually, 52 countries, and just about every musical genre -- reaching any internet connection around the world. We could tell them in person, on the internet or at small or large venues. Anyone we tell would appreciate the convenience of such good music from independent musicians on their computer. It would be such a good way to help all of us reach even more listeners. With IMRadio, we aren't just waiting at the mercy of some major label to decide whether or not they will let us be heard around the world. There are enough of us that the outreach could be exponential. And, wouldn't it be a great way to say 'thank you' to Paddy and all of the other fine folks who have put on the world's musical map. They have put in money, time, energy and dedication, and all they have asked of us in return is to upload our music and profile. I am sure that they have great plans to publicize IMRadio and bring it to even more listeners. In the meantime, through, wouldn't it be great if we could all help a little by just taking a little time each day to tell family, friends, fans and acquaintances about IMRadio. It wouldn't cost a dime, just a little time. Yours, in Musical Solidarity, Paul.

Nice to Meet You ... “...From I had a dream, to keep hope alive, to yes we can, these days we'll survive, we will thrive - he won't leave the people behind: From a Bush Abomination to ‘ObamaNation,’ (soon) you can ask you can tell, take off the mask you can yell, from a bush abomination we take back our nation, Obama Nation, the American Nation...” Please give a listen to our new rock/reggae/folk song “ObamaNation.” If you like it, spread the word. Thanks. Peace. Paul from Future Now.
