1953 – Born this day in history, Ed Ulibarri.
Ed is originally from Denver Colorado where he started performing as a professional musician at the age of 15 years old, playing keyboards and singing in local rock bands.
In 1976, Ed and his band Alexis received a recording contract with MCA records and moved to Hollywood to record it at the Record Plant with producer Ron Nevison. After the record was released, Alexis – featuring Ed on lead vocals – toured with some of the hottest bands of that era: Foreigner, Styx, UFO, Pablo Cruz, Atlanta Rhythm Section, and Pretty Things to name a few.
Ed has also released a solo Christian LP in 1993. And in 2007, the band No Nation – Ed along with Stevie Roseman and John Hernandez – released a Rock Opera entitled Illumine that features Mike Pinder of the Moody Blues, Ross Valory of Journey, Stef Burns of Huey Lewis and the News, Jeff Tamelier of Tower of Power and Jon Anderson of Yes as guest artists.
Playing live shows on tour was a highlight for Ed, but his passion is working in the recording studio. As a session musician Ed has worked with Eddie Money and Mike Pinder. Ed loves songwriting with his friends, especially with his wife Ann whom he has been married to for over 34 years. Ed has also enjoyed being in the producers chair working with many bands in the Northern California Bay Area.
As a musician, father, grandfather, husband and friend, Ed’s hope is that his music can spread the good news of peace and the prospect of a better future for many generations to come.
