Award winning Singer, Songwriter and Multi-Instrumentalist D. Edward began his musical journey growing up in an eclectic musical household, influenced by what his parents and older brothers were listening to on the radio and on records. These influences included old school R&B/Funk, Soul, Pop, Hip Hop, Country, Latin and African music, as well as crooners like Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin.

In April 2016, he won the Indie Music Channel Award for Best R&B Producer and was nominated for a 2015 Hollywood Music in Media Award, Oakland Indie Award and contributed to a Latin Grammy nominated album "Adelante" by Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band for Best Children's Album and he also won the 2014 Oaktown Indie Mayhem People's Choice Award.

He’s performed at Slim's San Francisco CA, Club Fox Redwood City CA, Room 5 Los Angeles CA, Kulak's North Hollywood CA, South By Southwest (SXSW) Austin TX, the Soiled Dove Underground Denver CO, the ULUV Music Festival San Francisco CA, Ashkenaz Berkeley CA, Oakland Mayhem Festival (Headliner), The Legionnaire, Awaken Café Oakland CA, Neck of the Woods & 50 Mason Social House San Francisco CA among others.
