Roots folk guitarist and vocalist Eddie Cole, launched his ABC Radio National Album of the week ‘Groove Eddy Overload’ with a series of gigs in September and October followed by a trip over to Western Australia for The Nanga Festival.
With airplay on 3PBS and nation wide on community radio as well as the coveted RN album of the week, ‘Groove Eddy Overload’ features the virtuoso guitar playing of Eddie Cole backed by his rhythm section of Nigel Picknell and Joel Hulme plus backing vocals from the stunning Amber Rose.
‘Groove Eddy Overload’ is the follow up to 2008's 'It's the apocalypse, baby' which recieved airplay on Triple J, garnered reviews such as: “This is a fantastic album, from a true musical genius… Wonderful musicianship, fantastic arrangements, awesome songwriting … for an independent release this has set the bar to a whole new standard…” Laura Bethell Maverick Magazine (UK) as well as a feature on Sunday Nights with John Cleary (ABC Local Radio) and number two on the Sounds Like Café summer charts for 2008/09.
Eddie Cole has been a drifter, odd jobs man and guitar teacher and was once described as the ‘Idiot bastard of folk music’ but as Tim Ritchie said when presenting the album of the week: “… this week's voice will have been heard by only a few but, given the Artist Of The Week platform, can now be judged by many.”
