For more than 20 years, Ed Goldfarb has been a ubiquitous figure on the Bay Area music scene as a pianist, composer, arranger and producer. Ed was Music Director of San Francisco's legendary Beach Blanket Babylon theatrical review for more than a decade, and he also enjoys a long-standing collaboration with noted film director Francis Ford Coppola, incuding Jack, Tetro and Apocalypse Now Redux.
In the studio, Ed has worked with Gold and Platinum artists such as Plain White Ts, Boyz II Men, Sean Paul and Morcheeba, as well as literally hundreds of independent songwriters, instrumentalists and bands. Ed has also been a Director of Music in the United Methodist Church since he was in high school, and has composed several large-scale works for choir and orchestral ensembles.
Ed currently works out of his home studio, Madcap Labs, where his secret weapons include a wall of analog synthesizers and the Melodyne software program. His latest project is a study of artist development and promotion in the post-record company era, with himself as test subject.
