Edwin L. Birdsong (born August 22, 1951) is a keyboard/organ player who was known in the '70s and '80s for his experimental funk/disco music. He never achieved chart success, but developed a strong fan base, and has also been sampled by other artists many times, most famously by Daft Punk who sampled "Cola Bottle Baby" in "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger", and Gang Starr who sampled his single "Rapper Dapper Snapper" for their song "Skillz".

Birdsong is the son of a minister and grew up in a strict fundamentalist environment. [1] He joined the Los Angeles Community Choir for a period before serving in the Vietnam War. He went on to play in clubs in Germany, and then moved to New York to pursue his music career. There he headed a jazz and blues trio but experienced little success. While in New York he attended the Manhattan School of Music as well as Juilliard as a composition major.

In 1971 he signed a record deal with Polydor. Under Polydor, he issued his first 2 full length albums, What It Is and Supernatural. Birdsong then issued one album for Bamboo, Dance of Survival, in 1975, and recorded Edwin Birdsong for Philadelphia International in 1979, which included the single "Phiss-Phizz." Birdsong also worked extensively with Roy Ayers; co-producing 3 of his albums and writing "Running Away" and "Freaky Deaky" with him.
