Bio

Eddie Felker is a singer-songwriter and guitarist who has been performing around New England since 1998.
Born and raised in Haverhill, Massachusetts, Eddie started singing with his family on long rides in the car and then with middle school and high school choral groups. In 1994 Eddie headed to a local music store, where he bought his first guitar.  Back then, he was a living room rock star. "I had little interest in writing songs or playing out. The guitar was just a fun way for me to pass the time."

It wasn't until returning to Boston after a couple years of working in Miami that Eddie tried his hand at songwriting. A friend encouraged Eddie to play his songs at a local open mic.  "One night, after months of procrastination, I overcame the fear and got up on stage. Afterwards, I was shaking, but a voice in my head was screaming, 'You have to do that again!'"

Eddie's music ranges from driving folk-rock to delicate ballads, sometimes finger-picking and sometimes strumming like an angry rock star. "I like to play to the audience. Good energy between the performer and the listener is essential. When I'm in sync with them, it's a great experience for all of us."

His lyrics are playful and often poignant. His subjects are based on real people, real experience, real life. His songs revel in the highs of a long happy marriage, and seek the light of hope against the darkness of addiction. "Music heals. We hate pain while we are living it, but we love to sing about it when we've grown strong again. I am trying to write songs that make people feel better about their own lives.  Those songs might not change the world, but I hope that when people listen, they'll come away from the experience feeling good."

Eddie has played venues from Portland, ME to the Florida Keys.
