David Edwards was one of Christian music's first new-wave artists. Unfortunately, Edwards was a bit too counter-cultural for the industry to market successfully with strong pop sensibilities and roots in Christain music that go back to the early Jesus movement revival. He would come to be best remembered for pioneering a style that was subsequently developed by the likes of Steve Taylor and Sheila Walsh.
Edwards was born in Belleville, Illinois, and brought up in Southern California. He was raised in a Christian home, the son of a Nazarene music pastor. He studied graphic arts and music theory at Pasadena Community College. In 1973, he became the bass player for the J.C. Power Outlet. He left the group in 1975 to pursue a solo career, signing a contract with Larry Norman's Solid Rock records.
