Ed is currently involved with NYC heavy metal band Truest Damned, lending his guitar, vocal, and songwriting skills to their debut album release. The album features Ed’s original composition “Schizoid Man”, a blistering NWOBHM-style workout complete with thundering drums, harmony riffs, traded solos, and lyrics outlining a wild lifestyle bordering on madness.
A member of Truest Damned since 2003, Ed has performed live with the band at numerous venues all over New York City and Long Island. Known for his boundless energy in concert, Ed is a musician to be watched at all times during a performance, whether he’s speeding through a solo, supporting the band with his driving rhythms, or allowing his vocals to soar through the mix.
Growing up in Eastern Pennsylvania and playing music from an early age, Ed has fronted and played with a variety of original bands, singing, writing songs, and playing guitar or bass, as the ensemble required. From intimate settings to raucous underground clubs, Ed has been able to adapt to any playing situation, everything from solo acoustic to small groups and full bands.
Ed plans to continue his alliance with Truest Damned, joining the band as they perform live in support of their new release. In addition, Ed is producing a guitar instructional DVD and planning a more jazz-oriented recording project for next year.
Honing his style through writing and performing, Ed has developed a memorable and unique musical voice that is all his own. He is truly an artist to be reckoned with in the years to come.
