ACOUSTIC

First Inspirations

Ed started playing acoustic guitar at age 11 and progressed to writing songs and playing in bands by age 16. After playing in bands, Ed worked as a recording engineer in Atlanta, produced hip hop in Atlanta and dance remixes in Miami. After being in the studio for many years, the love of playing songs with only an acoustic guitar and singing began to rekindle.

Currently Ed is performing some of his favorite songs on acoustic guitar, mixing DJ sets in Miami and Fort Lauderdale, Florida while also in the studio recording original material and collaborations for upcoming releases. Stay tuned to new shows and upcoming events on the calendar page.

ANDY SIKORSKI

Andy Sikorski and Ed Unger are a duo that started their inspiration at the Winter Music Conference in Miami, Florida. After touring Miami clubs together and talking music shop, a song collaboration formed a new sound between them with the single Shine (Just Because).

The initial idea of a positive song came immediately. What followed was a collaboration that involved an extensive number of arrangement and production revisions to get the song just right. With many great stories and late night sessions, the duo settled on the final tune.

Charged with positive energy, this Big Room House release shines with memorable melodic hooks that morph into euphoric chord arrangements with evolving synth textures. Fueled by driving beats and glitzy vocals of Ed, the track explodes with speaker-shaking drop and memorable lyrics. Firing on all cylinders, this radiant, energy-filled banger pulses with the heat straight from Miami’s night life. http://www.andysikorski.com

DIMA

The story of two musicians getting together to make tracks is a chain of providential events that started with Dima remixing one of Ed’s tracks. Ed loved the remix so much, that he invited Dima to be a guest on one of the Computer Music Production School radio podcasts to share his love for the music and production techniques. The two became good friends and it was no coincidence that when Dima wrote “Great White Throne” he sent the idea to make the song to Ed. “He has one of those voices that captivates you right from the first note. It’s a deep, powerful voice that draws you into the song and masterfully captures the feeling of the track.

The duo did not stop there and soon after, a new idea for a song came. “I did not think twice who to send the track to for laying the vocals. This time Ed reworked the melody and came up with something magical.” The track is called “Hold On” and is released on MK837 records. Ed and Dima share similar goals in life, their passion for music and the love for their Creator and that’s what makes this collaboration inspiring.
