Eddie Cain Irvin from Buffalo, NY released his acoustic fourth CD, “The Middle” at the beginning of 2003 by flooding his high school with copies. He had spent many days of his senior year by rushing upstairs to work on the album after school.
Completely forgetting about doing any sort of homework, Eddie experimented with meshing ordinary instruments with the unexpected. Piano and vocals, guitar, viola, violin and cello fill out the album with their comforting familiar timbres, complemented by use of his grandfather’s old record player, a thumb piano, a singing bowl, voices of close family and friends among other original sounds.
High school came to a brilliant end with Eddie’s performance of “Lullaby” at a concert for the senior class, and as a packed house rose to their feet with applause, he knew this was just the beginning of his musical life.
