Event Name John Eddie at Torch
Event Description In the past three years Torch has become known for showcasing some of the premier DJ talent from around the country. In a departure from this format Torch is presenting one of the most sought after singer/songwriters from NY for ONE NIGHT ONLY!!

The only stop in South Carolina on his south eastern tour Sony and Electra recording artist John Eddie brings his soulful rock n' roll style to Charleston. John has opened for or played with some of the biggest names in music over the last 20 years including Bruce Springsteen, Kid Rock, U2, Rolling Stones, Aretha Franklin and Bob Dylan.

Most recently 2 time Grammy Award winner Kid Rock has included one of John's songs, "Lowlife", on his most recent album, "Rock and Roll Jesus". This album has sold over 2 million copies and is the 4th best selling album of 2008.

On the roller coaster of his career so far, John Eddie has had enough big breaks, hard luck, new beginnings, false starts, serious adventure and big fun to inspire a boxed set's worth of country songs. He's had the sort of life - often hard-scrabble, occasionally charmed -- that other artists only imagine, or have someone else write about for them. John has managed to document a lot of this on Who The Hell Is John Eddie?, his debut disc for Lost Highway, along with details of assorted dreams, wishes, romances, and regrets. He really has spent endless days and nights on the road, playing the "****-hole bars" he so hilariously and accurately recalls. And he's endured the heckling of alcohol-fueled patrons wanting to hear Skynyrd and Petty and demanding to know, Who The Hell Is John Eddie?.

"John is remarkable.." - Bruce Springsteen

"Eddie hasn't lost his knack for bitterly funny roots rock" - The New Yorker

"...pungent songs imbued with earthy heartland twang and soulfulness..." - NY Daily News
