Ed has been playing the bass for 25 years. Originally a
guitarist, he made the switch when his guitar teacher needed
a bassist in his band. The rest, they say, is history. Ed
became very interested in the more rhythmic aspects and
lower tones (slap and pluck) as well as jazz and fusion styles.
His influences span a variety of musical styles and include
artists such as Dave LaRue, Mark King, Geddy Lee, Stanley
Clarke, Jaco Pastorious, Stu Hamm, Chris Squire and Larry
Graham. Also the bassist for the progressive rock band Enchant,
Ed is known for his unique and very rhythmic style, adding slap and snap, and tapping rock's progressive edge. Ed and the band have toured extensively since 1992, sharing the playbills with Dream Theater, Spocks Beard, Marillion, The California Guitar Trio and many others, as well as recording 7 studio albums and a live DVD/CD. Ed plays Kubicki and Fender Jazz basses, uses Mesa Boogie, Line 6 and Genz Benz amplification, and Tech 4X12 cabs.
