Bio

Eddy Faulkner is a singer/songwriter from Arlington, VA. He got his start in music at a very young age. His first serious instrument was the Trumpet which was introduced to him by his parents in 2001. He participated in his elementary, middle, and high school concert and marching bands with the trumpet. After playing the video game “Rock Band” though in February of 2008, he knew that deep down inside he wanted to do something else with music. So that winter he got his parents to get him a drum set and he taught himself the drums. This is when the lyrics started pouring out of him and by the spring of 2009 he had written over 100 songs. Since he had all these songs and no music to go along with them he got a keyboard for his birthday that spring. He then taught himself the basics on piano and the chords needed to build the melodies for his songs. His interest for writing and putting together songs increased and that summer he got his first guitar. He also taught himself guitar and then singing came into play.

During the fall of 2009 he formed a rock band called “The Remedy” with two of his friends from high school. He started writing songs for his band and they performed at many places around northern Virginia. These performances helped build his confidence at playing instruments and singing in front of a crowd. Eventually though the band fell apart because he had to go to college that fall and he had no more time for a band.

This is when during the summer of 2010 he put his music up online for the first time as a solo act. Earlier that year he actually started to write songs that were in a different style than his band. So that summer he put those songs and other songs he wrote on Facebook, YouTube, and many other sites for everyone to see. He also covered popular songs by other artists and put his own spin on them as well. “My favorite part about covering songs is making them my own. I think that is one of the marks of a true artist; when he or she can change a song around and have people still like it.”

To this day he still puts up videos and songs for his fans and other people to see. He has now thousands of fans on Facebook, thousands upon thousands of views on YouTube, and an international fan base with fans from the United States, Brazil, Indonesia, Australia, England, France, India, Portugal, and many more countries. “Since I started in 2010, I didn’t picture myself with the amount of support I have now from fans and friends across the world. This is truly a blessing.” His love of music is still strong and he is exploring new instruments and is writing new songs and melodies every day. “I love every second of this journey so far, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. Music is my passion, love, and one true escape from this world.”
