GERALD EDWARD hails from Monroe Township, NJ. This singer/songwriter and Berklee graduate brings his talented guitar playing, along with a jazz/rock-infused sound, to the masses by way of his debut CD, titled "You Write The Words."
Listing his current occupation as "Professional Musician", EDWARD keeps himself busy with a steady stream of gigs, both as an artist and a backing musician.
EDWARDS began playing guitar at the age of twelve. Influenced by a host of artists, he has been compared to the likes of John Mayer, David Gray and Dave Matthews, among others. These influences have never been more obvious than on "You Write The Words."
This ten-song compilation definitely showcases EDWARD's jazz influence. He weaves both acoustic
and electric guitars effortlessly throughout the disc like intricate threads in a tapestry of sound.
The first cut off his CD that we aired, "Dear Terina," drew immediate Dave Matthews comparisons from
listeners. Live on air, EDWARD performed a song called "Put The Brakes On." It is a line from this
song that produced the CDs title.
Drawing on his Berklee connections, EDWARD used several fellow alumni to record on his CD. These
same connections have also secured him an upcoming gig back in Boston at the Prudential Center as
part of the Ben & Jerry's Music Connection Festival.
EDWARD combines a smooth vocal style and great arrangements with tasteful guitar playing and
straight-on lyrics that one would expect from an older, more seasoned musician. This young artist
has honed his craft to the point where he has a sound that is experienced beyond his years.
