A country girl with an urban edge, Edy Blu’s highly emotive and soothing vocal tone will haunt you long after you leave her presence. Her beauty will capture you as soon as she steps on the stage. She has a knack for writing and composing catchy, melody-driven songs that you will easily find yourself grooving to. Edy was born and raised in the Shenandoah Valley, Virginia. Growing up on a farm, the world was her playground. Born a natural dreamer, the back-drop of mountains and woods only fueled Edy’s free-spirited tendencies. Yearning for more worldly experiences, Ms. Blu relocated to Sydney, Australia. It was during her three years abroad that she began to realize her musical potential by performing at various showcases and open mics.
As music became more than just a hobby, she crossed the Pacific and found herself in Washington, D.C. She became the lead singer of a rock and roll cover band to hone her chops and stage presence. She was also given the opportunity to sit in with different area bands, including reggae powerhouse, See-I at Eighteenth Street Lounge on Wednesday nights. These experiences gave her the confidence to start a band around her original compositions in late 2012. Her soulful, rootsy vibe and energizing live performances have been garnering her fans around the DMV. She is currently working on her first recording project set to be released later in 2013.
