Huntley My Sun Day News:


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. Americana drives 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 or start a new life…? However, the answers 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 ear drums.  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. 

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 these genres was essential to discovering the place where Eddy has truly found a home for his songwriting: 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.

Meet the percussionist: Sean Birth! Eddy and Sean (cousins) started playing music together back in 2017 with the foundation of their joint project: Straight Skinny. When Eddy made the decision to lean into the folk and Americana genres, it was only naturally to keep Sean Birth involved for all things percussion.   Sean continues to bring passionate percussion to every show. His rhythm keeps the crowd rocking all night long, and his intricate patterns, enthusiasm, and million dollar smile brings an unparalleled element to every venue. 

After learning to play the drums in grade school, Sean has played in several bands. However, since linking up with Eddy, a cohesive energy vibrating between the two cousin's dominates any live setting.  They have a bond that only shared blood can form (no blood oaths needed). Since entering the folk realm, Sean took to his garage where he designed his very own "suitcase" bass drum.
