With projects like E. Joseph and the Phantom Heart, E. Joseph and the Sparrows, The Rescue Party and more, Edward Neenan is a creative and musical lifer – it’s in his heart, his bones and, more importantly, his post-punk and pop soul.
Ed has an almost trademark style, like the happy marriage of Elvis Costello and Brian Setzer, and he’s been making a lot of waves in the local cover circuit over the past few years. But, he’s not just a musician, he’s got a background in marketing and broadcasting.
Join me in welcoming local good guy, Mr. Edward J. Neenan to the Mouthful of Graffiti podcast.
