In 1970 he was asked to join a recording group the "Elements" which toured the South and Ohio, managed by Chuck Brown and Bobby Massey, formerly of the " O'Jays", and Calvin Simon of the "Parliaments".
In 1971 Edward left Ohio and went to Detroit, Michigan looking for a brighter future. He was then asked to join the recording group the "Stylist" directed by John Barnet. The "Stylist" was a back-up group, that worked for Motown records. They sang background on most of the Motown recordings, such as "War" recorded by Edwin Starr.
