Biography

When Edo (born in The Hague-The Netherlands 1972) first picked up a guitar in the mid 80s, he already dreamt of being an artist. At an early age, John Denver records and hit parade radio were driving forces that lead him towards music and the art of songwriting. From the beginning, music and Edo were inseparable. He performed his own songs, with English lyrics, in crowded school halls. His performances were greeted with much enthusiasm.

During the 90s, Edo moved to Amsterdam and continued his musical pursuits while working in record stores. During this time, his musical taste was broadened and reached a deeper level. Surrounded by the CDs on the record store shelves, Edo was further inspired by the work of Jackson Browne, Tom Waits, John Hiatt, Mary Chapin Carpenter and countless other American songwriters.

From 1993 to 1994, Edo performed throughout the Netherlands with a cabaret duo - a Dutch art form combining comic sketches and music. During that tour, he participated in the Amsterdam Performing Arts Festival, achieving semi- finalist status and a public appreciation award. Inspired by his success, Edo then joined the Amsterdam-based, stand-up comedy group, “The Comedy Explosion,” where he trained with New York comedian, Lewis Black.

Cabaret and stand-up comedy provided a fun and rewarding opportunity for Edo to develop his stage presence.
