About Ed Van Fleet – The Music of Ed Van Fleet

About Ed Van Fleet

Ed Van Fleet is a music composer with 25 albums to date. His recordings have sold over two million copies, with his disc “Grand Eagle” selling over 500,000 units. Ed’s early musical roots were with heavy rock and funk. Before embarking on his solo career, he was a bassist & guitarist in rock bands in the Southwestern US.  After opening Synchestra Studios in Phoenix, AZ he was introduced to gentler and therapeutic forms of music.  Ed soon found himself creating musical landscapes with ambient atmospheres and lush orchestrations.  Luckily he found an eager audience yearning for this peaceful and uplifting style of music.

A multi-instrumentalist, Ed plays nearly all the instruments on his cds. He has created soundtracks for 17 films and documentaries, including “Moonshot” commemorating the 25th anniversary of the Apollo moon landing.

    Been listening to you for 25 yrs. First time I heard your music was at a listening kiosk in Mackinaw City MI. It was Migration, bought the cassette and I’ve been hooked ever since. I own almost all your cds now. Absolutely love em. Every time I listen to Migration it feels like I’m standing in the store as a kid at the kiosk. Thank you for the amazing music.

    Your music has a majestic sense of melodic awareness that most instrumental works of this type fall short of. I’m particularly fond of Daydreams, which never for a moment leaves the sky. Glad that you’re still weaving new songs!

    Dear Ed; I went to the Phoenix studio so so long ago..a less then talented guitar player with some tunes I and your partner I learned could take what was given and make it into wonder. Strange how soon after doing tax shelter recordings, to pay my way, let me have more time at “the Studio” and you flowed with that ridiculousness with an openness no other talent as grand as yours would seem to want to touch…but you made it happen. I have been very successful in music as well as in Patents and glad you hold is a rush! My off spring have gone on to wonderful musical destinations as well with a band Midtown social out of Frisco. I see their recording sessions on you tube and flash back to my youth and my Mentor Ed spreading inspiration even under the worst conditions of talent to work with..I think of those days as my best ..and thank you for them..Edwin H. Balder

    I was with my grandfather in the early 90’s at a gift shop in the Kalamazoo Valley Museum in Kalamazoo,MI, when your album “Grand Eagle” was playing on a kiosk. We listened to this album so many times. My favorite track is the title tack “Grand Eagle”.

    Time passed by, my grandfather passed away but I never forgot about this album. I was absolutely elated when I found that I could download this album and even listen to it via YouTube after a little over 20 years. I absolutely love all of your albums, but Grand Eagle is my favorite.

    Ed, I remember you on the stage at a Steve Powers show we did long long ago (the 90s). It might have been a Harvest Festival. I got the rain tape (I call it). Just today I played it for my chickens again–it’s their favorite. Mine too.

    Hi there! I have a cassette copy of Daydreams from 1983! I have kept it until this day – but luckily today I got your music as a download! I’m so happy I found you again! This is one of my all time favorites.

    Bought the album ‘Nature of the Game’ at a downtown Phoenix location when I was stationed at Williams AFB. It was an early music kiosk if I recall. The selection ‘Sequence’ (early use of sequencer?) mesmerised me. Nearly wore out the tape over years (good thing I had it transfered to a CD).
