Ed Jurdi listened to his father's eclectic music collection and began to show a musical interest at age 2 1/2, which his family encouraged by buying him a guitar. At Andover High he started the popular band Dr Head's Rhythm and Blues Revival which played a "lot of old rock-and-roll and old soul stuff," according to Jurdi. In 1999 he released his first CD ''Ed Jurdi'', a collection of 9 self-composed songs. In October 1999 he was performing about 20 shows a month, mostly in New Hampshire, When  he returned to Andover for a show in November 1999 he was playing more roots- inspired musicHe has said that his music doesn't fit into a specific category, but he "doesn't really mind what category people stuff him in, as long as they keep listening and he can keep playing." In 2003 he gave a concert in Haverhill to promote his second album ''Longshore Drive'' He said his performance would "sound like Van Morrison, with a lot of soul influences, including Otis Reading and James Brown." He had latched onto the Portsmouth NH music scene 5 years before and had been touring and performing since then.
