Edwin Derricutt was born in Napier, his mother a Salvation Army musician who once formed a harmonica band in the UK, and his father a talented joiner and shopfitter. Design and music go hand in hand for Derricutt who is both a qualified architect and an accomplished guitarist.
2010 marks the release of Edwin Derricutt's second full-length solo album 'Three Hours South' and follows up on his very successful independent debut release 'Symmetry' (2006) which included five singles across New Zealand and Australian independent radio. The title track 'Symmetry' entered the Top 100 NZ Radio chart without any commercial airplay, and 'Cold As Ice' was featured on the April 2008 NZ On Air Kiwi Hit Disc. Music videos for both tracks playlisted on Juice TV, Channel 63 and C4 networks in New Zealand. After releasing singles in Australia, Edwin gained the accolade of being the only New Zealand artist to appear on Australia's TRAA Top 100 song chart in 2008.
If 'Symmetry' was the reflective, soulful and chilled side of Edwin's skilled acoustic guitar playing and tune-crafting, 'Three Hours South' picks up where the title track from the previous album 'Symmetry' left off. A full band offering, toe-tapping, lighter, cheekier and an infectiously singable collection of pop songs.
Recorded to tape at the revived Revolver Studios, 'Three Hours South' is produced by acclaimed New Zealand producer Nic Manders (Nathan King, Brooke Fraser, Lydia Cole) and mastered in New York by Andy VanDette of Masterdisk.
'Three Hours South' is released on the artistís own label Freefall Records, and distributed in New Zealand and online by Pure Entertainment New Zealand Limited.
