Individually, Ed and Angela’s music, dance and theater education, experience and credits spans decades. But in 2004, their talents were combined when they met in Oklahoma City. Just one year later, they married and moved to Pasadena, California where Ed worked in non-profit and government work, taught and wrote music, while Angela pursued jobs in television, film, musical theater, dance and also teaching music and dance. During this time, they continued to nurture their passion for music by performing both original and cover songs throughout the Los Angeles area in a variety of venues. In 2005, they launched AIM, offering lessons and recording from their home studios.
In 2007, while visiting Ed’s brother and his family in the community of Verrado in Arizona, they saw a need for his nieces and the children of the West Valley of Phoenix to have the opportunities of high level music education and performing arts that one would normally expect to receive in cities such as Los Angeles, Nashville and New York. They fell in love with community and state and began to explore the possibility of moving. Planning for the transition began, and AIM moved to the West Valley in May, 2008. Ed and Angela continued AIM music operations in California through 2010. Since then, they have been in Phoenix full time.
Ed and Angela released four Jazz and Contemporary Christian CDs in the summer of 2011 All four CDs sold out in 4 four weeks during a four week summer tour throughout the Midwest. Since their meeting in 2004, Ed and Angela have performed as a husband and wife duo in venues in Arizona, Hawaii, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Florida, Alabama, California and New York. They are currently back in the studio recording a new CD project of originals with Grammy Award Winning Producer Steven Ventic and Grammy Award Winning Sound Engineer Jim Bonzai Caruso.
AIM is invested in the children and families of the West Valley communities, and we look forward to continuing to bring a high quality of performing arts education and performance opportunities to the Valley.
