In a review of Jed Marum's Irish in the Civil War album, FIGHTING TIGERS OF IRELAND, Nickey Rossiter said, "Jed Marum has a confident knack of taking the history of Ireland and the United States of America, combining them with music and creating some mini epics. This CD, subtitled A U.S. Civil War Collection, does on a single CD a task similar to the great PBS television series on the war." Nicky Rossiter writes on local history and general interest for numerous newspapers, magazines and journals in Ireland and is host of Stories on Ireland's South East Radio.
Jed's music is rich but uncomplicated. His voice and lyrics carry the tale and the wisdom beneath unfolds gently over time. In a review of Jed's MILES FROM HOME album, said Catherine L. Tully of celticmp3s.com said, "The simplicity of the music is its magic, which weaves around you and casts a rather lovely spell." And "This is one CD you need to experience for yourself, because it really is that good. If you enjoy folk-styled music, this is at the top of its field."
Jed's original songs and recordings have been licensed for use in film, TV and by other recording artists. His music is available on-line at CDBaby.com and at all major MP3 Music services. See more at jedmarum.com
