With a big nod to Serge Gainsbourg and classic romantic pop, the Music Lovers is led by Teddy Edwards (vocals/guitar). Born in Birmingham, England, Edwards moved to San Francisco in 1994 and while working as an MC met bassist Jon Brooder. They added Paul Comaskey on drums, completing the first lineup of the band. Very soon after their first show in New York in 2002 and with a demo in hand, the Music Lovers were signed to Le Grand Magistery, which issued the EP Cheap Songs Tell The Truth in November 2003. The first full-length, The Words We Say Before We Sleep, followed in October 2004. In early 2005 Comaskey left the band, while ex-Nelories member Jun Kurihara (piano, accordion), Colin Sherlock (drums), and Bryan Cain (guitar) joined. The new lineup recorded The Music Lovers' Guide for Young People, released in September 2006. ~ Kenyon Hopkin
