An American pop band lead by musical virtuoso, Ed Anthony, A Sleepless Endeavor has become a leading force in deep melodic anthems that glisten with a sun-kissed, electronic sound. A vocalist, guitarist, drummer, and pianist, A Sleepless Endeavor is built on his diverse range of talents, layering shifting arrangements with an over-arching pop character to create entertaining songs with real heart and soul.
His latest such release, ‘Westside Paradise’ arrived earlier this year and has since gone on to become one of Ed’s most accomplished and acclaimed pieces. Bringing a light, tropical vibe, the song begins with a glistening series of guitar chords that set a steady linger melody, breaking through the silence with a unique textured sound. With the stage set, Ed builds his sound intermittent flourishes of quick-fire beats, sweeping dance vibes, and his own smooth, calling vocals.
