Free Peace is a three-piece rock band formed in August 2008 by Liverpool music maverick Edgar Jones, who writes the material, sings and plays bass. His nephew Nick Miniski is on drums and Stuart Gimblett plays lead guitar.

Like the great rock bands of the late 60s Free Peace is all about respecting the traditions of jazz r'n'b and soul music - something which Edgar feels a lot of the modern bands just don't do.
