The Winters Come Home Evolution

With The Winters Come Home, Inside Edge enters the Winter Flight era with a new vocalist, and a new found energy. The evolution continued with another leap forward.

The Winters Come Home was part of a fresh wave of song writing that the creative core of Inside Edge was developing. Winter Flight.

With new vocalist Carol-Anne, Inside Edge return to The Shed Studio to record Winter Flight, featuring the songs:

  • Dawn Before Dark
  • Wall of Silence

Winter Flight is released in March 1990 and receives excellent reviews, press coverage, and radio airplay, particularly on KFM Radio.

City Life

Instantly likeable with its choppy guitar, a definite identity and sense of purpose; this is one of those demos that manages to stand a full head and shoulders above the others, due to a lot of thought and practice. ‘Dawn Before Dark’ is commercial and hits you immediately, and ‘Wall of Silence’ makes a big noise. Learn from them.”

Penny Anderson, City Life.

Penny Anderson had in a few short sentences captured and summarised the essence, the journey and the evolution of Inside Edge.

It was true, Inside Edge as a musical entity had a definite identity and a sense of purpose.

The creative core of Inside Edge was the sum of its parts, a collaboration, a mutual trust and understanding, an unshakable belief, a shared desire, and a love of music.

The Winters Come Home

Carol-Anne’s tenure with Inside Edge was short lived and she had left by April 1990.

Inside Edge never performed any live gigs or commenced any further studio recordings with Carol-Anne as vocalist.

Carol-Anne had a great voice, but didn’t contribute to the song writing of Inside Edge, and ultimately it was not meant to be.

Inside Edge continued its evolution.
