Bio

Beaver (a.k.a. E. Easley Jr.) grew up in a home where jazz, blues, and Motown R-n-B music was served daily. Thanks to P. Walker for those old records and tapes!

At the age of about 10, Beaver started guitar lessons at Evergreen Plaza off Western Avenue in Chicago but due to illness in the family had to give up the lessons... shortage of cash.

For years the guitar accompanied Beaver as he travelled, worked and lived across the globe. No doubt, the sights, sounds and experiences of living abroad, shaped Beaver's musical palette.

On day while shopping in the outdoor markets of Riyadh, Beaver bought a $40 casio keyboard and so began his journey of musical expression.
