Groove Eddy, aka Eddie Cole, is a roots-folk artist from the Dandenong ranges outside of Melbourne, Australia. He’s been a drifter, an odd jobs man and guitar teacher. He is also an accomplished singer, player and songwriter. 2010 sees him releasing Groove Eddy’s first album: ‘Overload’.
‘Overload’ brings Eddy’s guitar playing and singing to the fore with his band of Nigel Picknell on drums, bassist Joel Hulme, vocalist Amber Rose and on a couple of tracks, violinist/vocalist Judy Hamilton. This is folk-roots music with echoes from Prince and Pink Floyd, to Ben Harper and James Taylor, which showcases a totally original voice alongside some wonderful guitar playing. Some of his previous recordings have had airplay across Australia on ABC and community radio, but it’s with this record that he’s starting to garner some serious attention. He’s played and busked around the country over a twenty-year period, honing his skills and sailing the winds of fortune.
