  • (1888PressRelease) April 09, 2011 - About Eddie Cohn:

    "Stay With Me" is Eddie Cohn's second full length record and it tells the story of a man struggling to learn how to live, love and find himself. The album is lush, vibey, dark, deep and layered. Lyrically, the songs express what is deep down in all of us: fear, anxiety, hope, love and desire.

    Music clearly runs in the blood as Eddie's uncle Marc ("Walking in Memphis") has enjoyed a solid and successful career in music for many years. While Eddie shared a passion for music at an early age much like his uncle, the similarities between the two clearly end there. Eddie's musical influences range from Radiohead, Nirvana and Jeff Buckley to the African chanting of Amadou and Mariam.

    When he was 12, Eddie was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, a chronic auto-immune condition that affects the entire body. Things like that-near-death experiences, catastrophic events-make their mark on your soul, bringing a unique darkness to your life that never fully dissipates. It's from this place that Eddie writes, waiting for his muse, not forcing the creative process. The songs are heartfelt and personal; the voice is silky and smoky and enticing; the music swells and simmers, pieces laid brilliantly over one another to craft the perfect song, again and again.

    "I think it's important for artists to take the time to discover what they do really, really well." It took Eddie five years between Stay With Me and his last release. During this time, he traveled, reflecting on his craft, adding bass, percussion, Fender Rhodes, Moog and others to his skills on piano, drums and guitar. The result combines a variety of influences from the popular--Pearl jam, Elliot Smith--to the raw power of African drumming and chanting. As writer, performer, producer and musician for this release, clearly that journey was well worth the wait.

    "Stay With Me" features remixes from Grammy-winning producer Carmen Rizzo (Paul Oakenfold, Esthero, BT, Tiesto, Coldplay.)
