Eddy Boston Music
The fifth of seven children born to an artist and an author in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Eddy Boston was destined for a life of creativity. But it was not until he was in college at Tufts University that he borrowed an ex's guitar and began writing songs, showcasing them at local open mic nights. Since then, he has channeled a diverse set of musical influences to create a unique and eclectic style. In 2010, he relocated to Folly Beach, a small island community outside Charleston, South Carolina. The seaside locale lends a salt-tinged vibe to many newer compositions, such as the laid-back It's Folly, while still keeping the edge brought on by 30-some-odd Northeastern winters.
After nearly two decades of honing his craft by performing at venues across the US and Europe, Boston released his first full-length studio album, Here and There, in 2016. Song styles range from the Buddy Holly inspired Just One More, to the reggae-influenced Fix It, through the toe-tapping bluegrass number Lovely Soul. Miranda Jordan (of the band Headrush) lends her vocals to the sweetly upbeat Yes I See, while Boston strips it down to voice and fingerpicked guitar in This Is My Life, a bittersweet ode to reinvention.
The album title is a reflection of not only the move from North to South, but also the variety of musical styles. "With this album, I want to take you on a journey with me," says Boston. "Some songs were written here and some there, but besides that my style covers a large musical landscape."
