Eddie Gomez was born in Portland, Oregon. As Eddie worked to sharpen his guitar skills, he also polished his performances. He began gaining popularity in his hometown through gigs at bars, nightclubs and other venues. Due to Eddies immense following, lines to his performances wrapped around buildings, with many establishments offering standing room only to customers. From that point on, Eddie knew he could make music his career.
With the desire to take his music to the next level, he left Portland for Los Angeles. Immediately, Eddie began entering songwriting competitions across the city. Early on, he was widely recognized as the fresh face with the big sound. Word about his performances traveled fast, and soon he was introduced to music mogul and multi platinum music producer Steven "Bud'da" Anderson. Anderson liked what he heard, and they started to refine Eddies already unique sound.
Soon after they began collaborating, Eddie was asked to write, "With You", and, "The One", for the sound track to the film "Get It Tight for Mr. Right" in 2006. In 2007, he was asked to play lead guitar for the theme song to the Disney Channel show "As The Bell Rings".
He also began writing and producing music for beginning artists utilizing insight he gleaned from "Bud'da". "The most important thing I've learned from Budda is that something good can be taken from any song or musical style", Eddie said. This teaching is evident in the evolution of his rich layers of sound and beat. He draws inspiration from figures such as Lauryn Hill, Boys to Men, John Legend, and Donnie Hathaway. Imagining his own place in the spotlight, Eddie comments, "I work hard not to be the best, but hopefully to be remembered as one of the greats". Well on his way, he is currently finishing a large body of music for his first album. 4:19 http://www.myeddiegomezmusic.com/
