Paul Edelman remembers being four or five years old and hearing Bob Dylan on the family stereo.
“I’m sitting on the couch by myself and “It’s All Right Ma, I’m Only Bleeding” is on,” Edelman recalls before rattling off a strand of the lyrics by memory.

Shadows even the silver spoon
The handmade blade, the child's balloon
Eclipses both the sun and moon
To understand you know too soon
There is no sense in trying.
“It just codified my fascination and passion for music,” he said.
It’s a Monday afternoon, some five decades later, and Edelman is sitting inside a recording studio just off the main highway going into Marshall. He did some construction work here to offset recording costs of his last two records, the newest titled “Telecoaster.”
