Out of the culture soaked sway of the south, comes the birth of soul music’s next great son. Born in Atlanta, Georgia and raised in Dallas, Texas, Eddy Fontane renews and redefines the essence of great music by fusing southern soul with a variety of other musical genres, creating a distinctive and undeniable sound.

As a naturally gifted writer having spent years learning and understanding music production and engineering, this self-taught modern day Renaissance man expresses his encompassing knowledge of music through his refreshing sound.

Following in the footsteps of musical legends like Marvin Gaye, Donnie Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Bill Withers, Otis Redding, Al Green, Sam Cook, Phil Collins, Rod Stewart, the Bee Gees, the Beatles, and a host of others, his musical influences range from the blues to rock and roll all together creating a style-rich gumbo for everyone to enjoy.

In the age of quick fixes, easy solutions and mediocrity, Fontane stands apart from the rest with his soulfully smooth voice and his thought provoking and heart-piercing lyrics. Ranging from grooving up and mid-tempo songs, to concentrated, inspired and emotional ballads, he has given all of himself in an effort to give the world a break from the struggles of everyday living. He wants his music to be a reference for everyday folks - medicine and therapy. This is his calling and his destiny. With both feet planted firmly on the ground, eyes and heart wide open and ready for the world, I introduce to you…Eddy Fontane. - Swagg News

"What I do is a fusion of all types of music, like soul and rock," he says. "It's kinda like my own thing."
