Edub poet was born in Mesa, AZ 5/25/65. His family moved all over Mexico & Central America as a child, which did deepen his perspective of the world. He started playing guitar at age 5 in Mexico City Mexico, giving fun mariachi type performances at school.Playing guitar and writing music has always been a constant in his life. He started surfing at age 14 in the Half Moon Bay area of CA, and yes, surfing really began to influence his music in a profound way. From the bay area he moved to San Diego CA in '81, where he immersed himself in the Ocean Beach, Sunset Cliffs lifestyle, and joined forces with a very popular band of teenage kids known as 'The Monsters'. Suddenly he found out the fun of being a paid musician, and being at the center of every raging party he performed at. Those were some good times. His hard headedness eventually got him booted out within a year and a half, which may have been the case for other band break ups of his, but the seven bands he played in were great times and experiences. His son, Tyler was born in'94, And at this time, edub quit performing in public for the next 12 years, and now he's back at it with the full support of his loved ones. Edub Poet, some soulful energy laced with some hot lick guitar pickin'!
