THE BEGINNING

WHERE WE CAME FROM

Edmonds Pro Audio was established in 2011 by owner Wayne Pumphrey. Pumphrey has a 40 year career in conducting, producing and administering music programs in churches and as a secondary music educator. He has a Master of Music degree from Azusa Pacific University where he studied with Dr. Gary Bonner as a performer and conductor. His time at Azusa Pacific also provided a solid foundation into commercial music performing in a wide variety of musical ensembles and several recordings at the famed United Western Studio (Oceanway) with engineer Jerry Barnes.

ALL THAT JAZZ

NO REALLY….

In 1993 the Pumphrey’s moved to Seattle where he developed several award winning ensembles at King’s High School, including a 100 member choir & orchestra, jazz band and jazz choir as well as “Downbeat” student soloist winners. It was during his time at King’s that he began his association with his vocal jazz mentor Frank DeMiero. In 2012 Pumphrey began producing the DeMiero Jazz Festival. An annual 3 day educational vocal jazz festival involving 1500 students from 50+ student and community groups performing in 5 venues along with Master Classes and evening performances from world class jazz musicians.
