Ed Van WicklenSinger/songwriter hailing from York, PA known for his original music which layers in rock, groove, funk, blues, bluegrass, folks and more... There really is not one genre that Ed sticks with when writing or performing.  When there is a live show, Ed will also layer in versions of covers for which he makes his own.

Carved in Stone was released in 1999, when Ed was playing around the area very regularly, sometime between 1994 and 2004. Since then, there has been a long hiatus during which Ed recorded his new album, Till the End.

Till the End was released on May 3, 2013. This album was a challenge to himself to record an album with all instruments being played by Ed. And other than a few guest spots, this is exactly what transpired.

He has been described as many different things including: Jam Band, Rock-N-Groove; Funk-N-Blues, Folky Psychedelic, and more. Which goes to show his diversity in playing and writing. Although much of the sets consist of original music, covers do weave themselves into the mix, which could include artists like: The Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, String Cheese Incident, Keller Williams, Jack Johnson, Eric Clapton, Phish, and more.

His 1st CD release, Carved In Stone in 1999, had great reviews, lots of radio play all over the world.  His 2nd release was released on May 3, 2013 and has so far been receiving great reviews as well!

Musical Experience:
After playing classical piano for 5 years, Ed first picked up the guitar at age 13. Playing along to music from the Grateful Dead to Led Zeppelin to Bob Dylan to Eric Clapton and more is how he learned the guitar. 

Then, after his first real paying gig in 1994 (other than the occasional private party jam session), filling in with Don Carn and some other local musicians at the Granfalloons in York, PA, he caught the performing bug and has been gigging ever since.

Since then he's picked up every instrument along the way to add to his collection and his resume of instruments played, including: Mandolin, Drums, Bass, and more...
