Poor Edward is the duo consisting of Martin and Kristian Tungland Rinde; two brothers from Stavanger, Norway. Writing and performing their own songs, Poor Edward can be classified as a mixture of pop and rock with notable americana/folk tendencies. Their trademark is a guitar and vocals sound, largely focused on lyrics and harmony. The music is melodious, sometimes melancholy, often understated and always authentic. When asked about their inspiration, the duo draws influence from folks such as The Everly Brothers via The Jayhawks and Calexico to Bruce Springsteen. Since 2006, the duo has completed several tours around Norway, both as an acoustic duo and with their bacingband. They have also released, to great critical acclaim, the EPs Summerrain (2008), and Soldiers & Sundays (2009).
In 2011 they released their debut full length album, titled Time Is Gonna Change You.
