Eddie Reddick – Still Having Fun

Eddie Reddick is a native of New Orleans, Louisiana who migrated to California as a teen with his Mother, Father, and Sister. He grew up in Long Beach where he came in contact with several other musicians who had the same dreams and aspirations he himself possessed. That dream was to become successful and well known in the music industry. While still in high school, Eddie landed a steady gig with a local band in the Long Beach area working 3 to 4 nights a week. This was a big deal for him, making pretty good money and not having to work a regular day job. This was the ticket. Eddie was hooked and realized this was all he wanted to do in life.

Eddie has been working in the LA area for over thirty years. He has recorded and performed with many artists such as Chaka Khan, Billy Cobham, Roy Ayers, Bill Withers, Wayne Henderson of The Jazz Crusaders, Bobby Lyle, Side Effect, The L A Boppers, The Dramatics, Jeff Kashiwa, Steve Oliver, The Art Of Sax. Eddie says it doesn’t’ matter much anymore where his performances might be. It could be in a small dinner club or a huge concert arena. People are beautiful where ever they are. He is bringing to you all his years of experience on his solo CDs which features him as a vocalist, a song writer, producer, and bass player. He still remains true to the old school basics and still remains true to his overall philosophy which is, Create from your soul, Speak with your heart, Even if some don’t agree, Most will listen to what you have to say.

Eddie’s new CD for 2020 Still Having Fun features 8 tracks, all originals – a mix of smooth R&B, soul and old-school funk that you’ve come to know and love from one of the most exceptional players on the scene.
