"Jett Edwards has built a long-overdue international bridge to Japan and Asia with a combination of songs, performances, and business sense," said Gerald A. Wiggins, CEO of WMGW, Inc. "Jett's persistence has opened doors for artists, songwriters, producers, independent record labels, distributors, and investment companies worldwide to gain deep access into Japanese and Asian markets."
Now residing in Tokyo, Mr. Edwards was born and raised in North Carolina, the son of renowned gospel singer Hiawatha Edwards. Growing up in a musical household, he learned multiple instruments and appeared as a bassist on his father's LP before recording his first composition at the age of 14, "Lonely Man," released by the Philly Sounds label. Edwards also stormed the Gospel & Country music scene, where he won a Grammy with the legendary Blind Boys of Mississippi. He was one of the first black artists to perform at Nashville's Grand Ole Opry.
"WMGW gives the 'Revealed (XXL)' CD instant worldwide exposure," Mr. Edwards said, "through their ability to place the songs on leading electronic music distribution websites in North America, Europe and Asia. WMGW and Gerald Wiggins have treated me like one of the family; they've made themselves available 24/7 in support of this project. I'm proud to be a part of such a visionary team."
