Ed Amann -
Ed started with guitar in 1963. Started for the music, but got a lot more interested when he found out the musical types were attracting more girls. Ed started playing in public at The Needle’s Eye in Kent. Ed started playing with bands while in Army in Texas and toured with The Elmore Brothers Band in mid '70s. Ed has played with a lot of commercial bands around Akron since.
Ed started playing as a single in 2001 in order to get his songs out to the public. Ed writes in many styles. The albums are mostly performed as solo acoustic, pretty much like a live show. The recently added singles are much more electric, channeling the band Ed hears in his head.
Ed's solo shows celebrate the oral tradition of folk music. All songs, original and cover are performed from memory. There is no set list so it is never the same show twice. Songs are selected in real-time as Ed responds to his audience.
