For the past two decades, Atlanta native Ed Roland has been the front
man and heart of the platinum-selling rock band Collective Soul. He’s
written seven #1 radio hits, and has sold more than 10 million albums
worldwide. For Roland’s new project, Ed Roland and The Sweet Tea
Project, he teamed up with a group of friends and musicians for a new
approach to his classic hit-making style.

“The Sweet Tea Project started as a bunch of my friends coming over
after gigs and listening to new songs I had written, but not with
Collective Soul in mind,” said Roland. “Everybody sat around my
studio with different instruments –banjo, mandolin, steel guitar, and
ukulele – and just had a lot of fun.”

Indeed, Roland suggests that the main difference between The Sweet Tea
Project and Collective Soul is in the instrumentation. “At this point
in my life, the main focus will always be in writing the best songs I
can write or co-write with my band mates,” he said.

Ed Roland and The Sweet Tea Project’s debut album, Devils ‘n Darlins,
is due for release in 2013 and will be preceded by two “Rooted in
Georgia” residencies (Eddie’s Attic in Atlanta, and Melting Point in
Athens). The idea is to break this band the “old school way,” by
building its fan base close to home first , and then by kicking off
what Roland suggests “will be a solid two years of touring” to support
the debut.
