Reggie Wu started out in the south Jersey area, playing in local bands. He then moved to California to take the place of current Whitesnake guitarist Doug Aldrich in the band Mansfield. Shortly after leaving that band, Wu moved back to New Jersey and joined the band Whitefoxx. That band lead to a meeting with vocalist Mark Evans and the formation of Heavens Edge. With the band Cinderella leading the way, Heavens Edge was signed by Columbia Records and produced a self titled debut album in 1990. A couple years after the album was released, the bottom fell out of the genre of which Heavens Edge was a part. That pushed a scheduled second album, although mostly recorded, off the release radar and lead to the band breaking up in 1993. The band got back together in the late nineties and that second album called “Some Other Place, Some Other Time” was released in 1999 on Perris Records. The band has done some tour dates and played several festivals in the years since. Just recently, Reggie Wu and Mark Evans wrote and recorded their first song in 18 years called “What Could’ve Been”. Reggie Wu will discuss what the bands next step will be and where you can hear the band’s music.
