BIOGRAPHY OF DJ EDDIE BLACK - HIS LIFE AND CAREER IN MUSIC

DJ Eddie Black

"Listening to music was a big part of my life growing up, as a teenager my favorite thing on Saturday mornings was turning on the radio to hear the weekly top 40 count down hosted by Casey Kasem.  I can't imagine my life without music in it."


Music was something Eddie really became infused with and he ended up with a mixed spectrum of musical influences.  He also sings, plays the electric guitar and bass guitar. Today, Black as a DJ, music producer, musician, and songwriter, has found plenty of ways to express himself musically. He also produces instrumental music for podcasts, audio books, commercials, movies, and video.


Eddie is diverse in popular music styles and delivers music with a combination of driving alternative-rock-pop-progressive trance and EDM (electronic-dance-music) with a highly contagious positive energy! Entrancing the souls he touches Eddie has created a following from Calgary to Toronto, Hollywood to Nashville, to as far away as Queensland, Australia.  He has received industry attention and positive feedback from reps at Universal Music Canada, Music News Nashville, and in Orlando, St. Louis, and elsewhere.
 

Eddie became impassioned to create dance and electronic instrumental music while on a break in Miami Beach in 2008.  Black’s career took off after winning the 2009 Star Search competition at Cowboys nightclub in Calgary.  In 2010 he released his inspired album, Diffusion, a blend of original songs with energizing progressive trance and techno beats with a feel good vibe.  Diffusion contains 13 tracks, including the chart-climbing favourite, “Waiting for You,” and rapturous offering, “Berlin Mix.”  By 2011 Eddie had headlined at Super Nova’s Summer Warfare Tour and was showcasing his music in Toronto and Los Angeles. Next, he went to Nashville, where he opened for Michelle Wright, Patricia Conroy, Victoria Banks, and Carolyn Dawn Johnson, and where he helped raise money for homeless Vets with performances at the Nashville Fair Grounds and the American Legion.
 

In 2013 Eddie was recording at Vogville Studio in Vancouver and making a music video for his single, “I’m Coming Back,” with producer Gene Greenwood.  That same year he performed in Utah and Nevada and was featured on KLVA 1230 AM in Las Vegas as well as Calgary’s Feel Good Radio Station, Up! 97.7 FM. Throughout 2014 Black enjoyed a number of musical accomplishments, including opening for L.A. Guns at the world famous Whisky a Go-Go on Sunset Strip in Hollywood and being interviewed on KSKQ 89.5 FM in Ashland, as well as performing live and being interviewed on the popular online television show, Late Night at the Plaza, in Calgary.  In 2015 Eddie was writing new songs and performing his EDM/Techno music as the feature Canadian Music Producer/DJ in St. Louis at The Upstairs Lounge.  Though he loves playing live events, special fundraisers and social events, his love for music goes beyond the spectrum of mixing tunes. In 2016 Eddie started offering with his DJ services starter private and group dance lessons. His shows are receiving great reviews and event bookings are filling up fast for 2019.
