Ed  Roland

After attending The Berkley School of Music and working as an engineer, Ed wrote a series of songs and produced a demo designed to see if he could get work as a song writer. He released these songs in 1993 under the name Collective Soul. These songs turned into the first Collective Soul album and contained the multi-platinum hit “Shine”. Since, Roland has been the leader of the worldwide successful band and has written and performed such hits as “World I Know”; “December”; “Staring Down”; She Said; Gel; Heavy; and many others.
