Biography

Smooth. Upbeat. Fresh. Intense. Energetic.

No matter what words fans use to regard his music, David Edgerton is CALLED TO PLAY. His first project answers the call God has placed on his life to make music with a spiritual purpose. His smooth jazz piano music is addictive-causing your mind to be released from the stress of today's challenges, taking you to a place where you can relax and be spiritually restored through the music's energy and drive.

His debut release "Called to Play" is a collection of contemporary compositions written around his life experiences. From his funky rendition of "Stretch Out," to his solo piano reflection of "Called to Play," David demonstrates several degrees of expression for any given mood. His arrangements focus on acoustic piano in the center of a small tight combo setting with harmonic and rhythmic accents from different instruments.

David Edgerton has been making music since an early age. He started playing the piano at age 3, and began arranging music for his 8th grade school band at age 13. At North Carolina A&T State University, he earned a degree in electrical engineering and a minor in music composition. While there, he studied jazz and arranged popular music for the University's marching band. He also performed his original works in the University's first composition recital.

In the near future David Edgerton will be touring the Twin Cities to promote his debut CD. You don't want to miss a live performance, so stay current of his upcoming events.
