Ed was born and raised on a farm six miles south of Gladstone, Manitoba off highway 34 and it was a steady diet of country roots and Elvis Presley. Grannies kitchen jam sessions left him soaked in smoke and guitar classics. Eventually he would find his way to nearby Portage La Prairie to study guitar with Murray Pulver and, in turn, to pursue his Jazz degree in Vancouver.
Ed has been a working musician for over 20 years now and has learned from some of our country’s finest guitarists. The journey has left him with a strong and unique style as a guitarist and vocalist. Ed has always felt that if people were willing to listen to his music, he had better have something to say. He has now found his way back home and to the grassroots style that he has never forgotten. Now an accomplished songwriter, he has forged his musical voice.
