Scott Sneddon of Edge Of Free sits down with Madness To Creation to Discuss STP, Bruno Mars, and “Higher”

Editor's Note:  It's not everyday that one stumbles upon a band and where the mind is considered blown.  That is exactly what happened when I stumbled across the music of Edge Of Free, which I would compare them to a country-fried steak(only from Cracker Barrel) version of Days Of The New, which is an esteemed compliment considering I've looked up to Travis Meeks as a vocalist in that band.  There was something organic, pure, and righteous that Edge Of Free offered in their music.  Scott Sneddon, vocalist of Edge Of Free, reached out for an interview and I had to oblige!  This was a fun conversation Scott and I had, and it all led back to the one thing that seems to unite all of us, and that is our love for the music and the passion behind the music.  That is always my goal is for my reade...
