Hailing from Chicago, Edamame is the stage name of 27-year-old ambient electronic music producer Ed Harris. With sounds equally inspired by the great outdoors and the worldís divergent cultures, Ed’s productions often teem with organic sonic textures personally field-recorded during his planetary exploration. Edamame has carved out his unique sound by synthesizing instrumental hip hop with downtempo melodies further informed by his deep love for world music. From his musical beginnings a trombonist, he became a nationally touring death metal vocalist before gradually growing out of screaming on stage. Ed made the 180-degree musical transition to creating what he in his own words describes as ìsongs that make you float,î nourishing a previously underserved love for ambient electronic music in the process. 303 Magazine describes Edís music as ìmore of an organic experience than emotion-provoking, [inviting] his listeners on a brainwave joyride.î Since starting in 2012, Edamame has played live to fans on both coasts as well as internationally, prompting music from his nine albums to score thousands of downloads in addition to airtime on radio stations around the world.
