Eduardo Di Napoli, born on the 18th of August of 1981 in the southernmost state of Brazil, got acquainted to music at an early age. As a child, Ed – as he is commonly called - used to sing himself to sleep at night. As his interest in all sorts of music grew, so grew his interest in guitar playing. At 9 he started taking lessons and four years later he started his first band, named Tailfish. The band had Ed as lead singer and guitar player and toured the state for two years before breaking up so all the members could dedicate themselves to college.
In 2003, right in the middle of his studies, Ed went on a one year trip to several European countries in order to broaden his horizons and let himself be influenced by other cultures and experiences. In Spain, he played at some night bars just to see how it went and that was when he realized that he was actually quite good at it.
As soon as he came back, he started composing lyrics. Resumed college, got a job, just like so many stories alike. A sense of dissatisfaction surfaced, and more and more time was dedicated to composing. Two years later, Ed became a solid songwriter, with over 100 songs written. Supported by friends and family, went to the U.S for a year season, playing at small venues and unlike many stories alike, Ed quit his job and started focusing on music again, realizing that that was his first, best, destiny.
Always influenced by international music, Ed Napoli mixes together energy, power, emotion and melodic harmonies with strong and wise lyrics. Ed has already performed in the year of 2009 as opener for artists like Alanis Morissette and the Air Supply.
Ed recently was semi-finalist of ISC (International Songwriting Competition - 2010 and 2011) and also received the Honorable Mention for Billboard World Song Contest – 2010).
Like some local musicians use to say about him: “Ed has a soothing voice that can rise to thunder”.
