ABOUT EDDIE FROM OHIO Too energetic to be labeled just "folk," and not angry enough to be pegged "alternative," Eddie from Ohio continues to defy description with their unique blend of vocals and acoustic instrumentation. A bedrock foundation of hand and stick percussion and a textural flavoring of guitar, bass, and harmonica support the four-part harmonies and lyrically-driven original music. While this combination has drawn comparisons like the Grateful Dead meets Peter, Paul & Mary, or Jewel fronts the Barenaked Ladies, Eddie from Ohio fuses a multitude of musical influences to create their own trademark sound. Performing Songwriter writes, "The manic strumminess recalls Ani DiFranco or Dave Matthews, but there's also a deep undercurrent of high, lonesome mountain harmony that should appeal to fans of Alison Krauss and Union Station."

With their trademark sound, Eddie from Ohio has produced nine CDs independently (over 200,000 sold), toured from Florida to Washington State, cultivated a massive and loyal grassroots following, and made multiple appearances everywhere from the Philadelphia Folk Festival to the Telluride Bluegrass Festival (CO), Strawberry Music Festival (CA), and Montreaux Jazz Festival (Montreaux, Switzerland). The band has been awarded the WAMMIE (Washington Area Music Association’s annual awards) for "Best Contemporary Folk Group” six times.
