Shocking Edison hails from Fort Myers, Florida, the same town that Thomas Edison had his Winter home and laboratory. Like the inventor, Shocking Edison weaves a variety of influences into innovations that are more than the sum of their parts. The band's musical influences range from street punk to opera, from ska to Zappa, from Rush to Phish, and from Little Feat to, crazily enough, musical theater.

If you like Cake, Live, Dude of Life, Alanis Morisette, or ever wanted to know what would happen if Train met the B-52's, then the debut CD, Scientific Curiosity, is for you. Billy Payne of Little Feat plays keyboards on six of the 16 songs.

A strong regional following, and immediate radio airplay of the single, “Couldn’t Be Better” is creating a frenzy of people wanting to hear this band. The full CD stands up to repeated spins, rewarding the listener with layers of textures and feelings. This is melodic yet edgy music for thinkers, and hearing it will make you feel good.
