I CAN MAKE A MESS LIKE NOBODY'S BUSINESS IN CONCERT:
Arthur "Ace" Edwards is one seriously talented musician. He not only fronts the beloved emo quartet The Early November – he also creates folk rock with his solo project I Can Make A Mess Like Nobody's Business. His solo material is more experimental than his band work, drawing comparisons to indie and alternative greats like Bon Iver, Iron & Wine, and Animal Collective. Edwards shines in acoustic settings, where he blends folky guitars, catchy melodies, and poignant lyrics on crowd favorites like "Lions" and "Whispering Actually". His live shows range from upbeat and hopeful to introspective and haunting, treating ticket buyers to a dynamic and moving concert experience they won't soon forget.
I Can Make A Mess Like Nobody's Business -- often shortened to I Can Make A Mess -- is the solo endeavor of New Jersey-born Arthur "Ace" Enders. In 2004 he took a break from fronting emo outfit The Early November and released his self-titled debut album. After The Early November went on an indefinite hiatus in 2007, Enders made two solo albums under the name Ace Enders & A Million Different People. He reemerged under the I Can Make A Mess moniker in 2010 with the albums The World We Know and Dust'n Off The Ol' Guitar, the latter consisting solely of reworked versions of The Early November and A Million Different People songs. He self-released his fourth album Gold Rush in 2011 before The Early November reassembled later that year. Though the band is still touring and making music together, the ever-prolific Enders has still found time to release I Can Make A Mess albums, including 2013's Enola and 2014's Growing In.
