Eddy Birth is an American singer-songwriter living in Madison, Wisconsin. His attraction to songwriting is driven by the poetic and thought provoking nature of lyrics. The Folk and Americana genres drive his unique sound as he utilizes acoustic guitar, heart wrenching harmonica solos, eerie Theremin layers, and accordion to create the canvas for his vocals.

 

His writing often inquires about the unknown associated with taking risks: what if I leave, what if I start a new life, what if I wander…? However, the answers are never found elsewhere. Instead they are found in Wisconsin. They are found in Chicago. They are found in the Midwest where loved ones are close by. 

Eddy's latest single, "Nighthawk," is an upbeat tune celebrating the bliss of true love! With an energy that is bound to make you smile while listening, this song reminds us to never stop loving those who are close to us. Keep the fire burning for the pure joy and beauty of life. 

Eddy started developing a passion for music quickly after he taught himself how to play the harmonica at age 13. Hours of fumbling across the diatonic scale on his $5 tin sandwich trained his ear to focus on melodic writing. His interest in music led him to the piano and ukulele, and he spent the next four years teaching himself chords and progressions with the help of Youtube and his eardrums.  However, playing an instrument wasn’t enough. He had something to say, and at the age of 17 he finally mustered up the courage to write lyrics and sing. The first time Eddy took the stage was in 2011 when he performed a setlist of originals at an outdoor festival in Geneva, IL. It was a pivotal moment in his life. He felt at home on the stage. He knew this was what he was supposed to do for the rest of his life.

 

Eddy has played with several bands over the past 11 years: Almost Always, Eddy Birth and the Ultrasounds, Sol Shine, and Straight Skinny. Each project has explored a different genre from alternative rock, reggae, hip hop, and blues. 

Exploring many genres was essential to discovering the genre where Eddy has truly found his songwriting home: FOLK. Americana and Singer Songwriter undertones have always been present in his music; however, learning to play the acoustic guitar has allowed folky songs to pour out of him with a natural and authentic spirit.
