David Eugene Edwards played in various bands in his hometown L.A. before he formed 16 Horsepower with Pascal Humbert and Jean-Yves Tola in 1992. After one show, David and Jean-Yves moved to Denver, Colorado where they re-formed the band with bass player Keven Sole. Signed to A&M records from 1995 to 1999, they released one EP “16 Horsepower” and two full-length albums, “Sackcloth `n` Ashes” and “Low Estate”. These three records were released worldwide and were supported by numerous tours.

In 1999, 16 Horsepower severed their ties with A&M (which at that time ceased to exist and is now part of Universal) and signed a European deal with Glitterhouse Records. Their first album for Glitterhouse, “Secret South”, self-produced and mixed by Paul Corkett, was worldwide in March 2000. A smashing success it was, too. Spring 2001 saw the release of “Hoarse” (a live-album originally only sold via mailorder) due to popular demand. Again both releases were supported by extensive touring throughout Europe. After one of these tours 16 Horsepower decided to take a rest to devote more time to other things. Jean-Yves raises horses with his wife, Pascal is building a house. But David had a million ideas that needed an outlet – WOVENHAND was born. And certainly more than a side project.
