Florida Musician Ed MCcurdy
A Founder Member of USAMusician.net
MCcurdy The Blues Man
and raised in the Washington D.C.area of
Arlington Virginia, Ed was also raised with a
musical and artistic family backround as well.
Eds father stage name (Terry O' Reiglly) mac
McCurdy was a professional trumpeter and composer
back in the days of big band and gangsters.An era
his father loved and an era that peaks Eds
interest each time he thinks about the ole days
of music. Ed started out on the alto sax when he
was about 8 yrs old. His interest in the reeded
instrument did not hold out for long.So he became
attached with the idea of becoming a drummer.
Like his father said if your going to play the
drums you have to play with the ole school Gene
Crupa and Buddy Rich modo. Lightly and
Polightly. So Ed realized he had a GOD
given talent as he quickly progressed with
percussion. He was top of his game in each class
of elementary, Jr. High, And High School. During
his teen years at the age of 14 he realized he
had the natural ability to play piano and write
His first keyboard was a tiny Casio that
he practiced and learn the art of religously until he
felt comfortable with knowing his place with the
instrument. So his thoughts were like He played the drums
he would master each instrument as well including Guitar,
Blues Harp, Bass and Vocals.
Ed has made quite a difference in communities throughout
the East coast of the U.S. His last main accomplishment
was making a huge name for himself and community amateur
and professional players in Florida. Sought out as one of
the best of the Blues and RB composers and one of the
most powerful stage performers you will ever see and hear.
He is humble and does not believe in abusing GODS natural
Gift of music.
Ed has had the opportunity to work with some legends in
the business .John Ellison (Writer of Some Kinda
Wonderful), Ronnie Byrd Foster (Drummer for Roy
Buchanan), Sonny Rhodes (Blues Legend), Maurice Fields,
Faye Henderson, Willie Lee of The Cats In The
House Sanford Florida. Odell Maxwell legendary
blues Harp player. Ed has opened for Skynard,Foreigner,Blue
Oyster Cult,Albert Collins, and many more great artists.
His biggest accomplishment with recording was and still
pending projects with The Legendary Mark Johnson of Cold
Weather Records in Nashville. Mark Johnson is a writer
for Disney Pixar and Ed is proud to call him a brother.
Mark Johnson produced Ed McCurdys first Nashville album
with the help of Willie Lee, childhood friend of Marks.
Ed moved form in the
Shenandoah valley to Florida a number of years ago.
He is available for recording and performance services 24/7
so send him and email and who knows maybe some magic can
that egotistical attitude that some artists have thinking
they are better than everyone else. He does not promote
that kind of negative feel nor will he ever be one of
those people. Instead he wants others to teach those who
have the wrong attitudes to have the right attitude to
give their gifts and not be selfish with them.This
thinking is one of the main reasons why Ed McCurdy has
been and continues to be successful.
got to suffer if you want to sing the blues!
