D. Edward Love Is 10th and Clay 2014

When the smoother side of jazz teams up with a neo-soul sound then you get the irresistible groove of D. Edward.

D. Edward may not be a household name but his resume includes work with numerous Grammy winners and nominees as well as working as the current percussionist with Con Funk Shun. Two years in the making and heavily laden with the melodic spice that is the Oakland sound, D. Edward is garnering some well deserved attention. Modern pop, a retro soul sound and some contemporary instrumental are tossed in the mix for a unique sound that the industry has been in desperate need of for some time.
While the single Love Is continues to chart other notable gems include "Show Me" (featuring Jenna Lavoie) and "Mighty Love." D. Edward has the innate ability to keep a foot in the past and both eyes on the future as he continues to be in high demand. The new sound for the next generation.
