Overview

What do Bel Biv Devoe, Shiela E, Johnny Gill, Baby Face, Ru Paul and Blessid Union of Souls have in common? One man, Cincinnati's own Eddie Hedges ­ Drummer, Percussionist, Singer, Songwriter and Producer . If his name is not immediately familiar, his music is.

In 1995, Eddie became one of the founding members and drummer of the multi-platinum recording group, Blessid Union of Souls. After close to a decade of touring the world, the group released four critically acclaimed albums. Driven by a string of hit singles "I Believe", "I Wanna Be There", "Light in Your Eyes", "Let Me Be The One" and "Hey Leonardo", Blessid Union of Souls have amassed sales of in excess of two million units.

Domestic tours and concerts include "Club MTV", "Triple Threat Tour" with Keith Sweat, Johnny Gill and Bel Biv Devoe, KIIS Concert in Boston and the "Wango Tango" concert in Los Angeles just to name a few. Internationally, Eddie has toured with Mike and the Mechanics throughout the UK playing many venues including Royal Albert Hall, Japan with Sheila E. and Shanice, and Europe with Blessid Union of Souls. In between tours, Eddie has made appearances on "Regis and Kathy Lee", "Donnie and Marie", "Jay Leno", "Arsenio Hall", "Good Morning America", "Crook and Chase", "American Music Awards", "James Brown 'Living in America Special'" and England's "Top of the Pops".

Eddies' past successes and new beginnings have united in spirit to present him with the opportunity to share his gift ­ the opportunity to record a solo project that draws upon his Christian and pop musical influences allowing him to follow his heart.

"I was raised in church singing and playing drums with my family. I was baptized and saved when I was 13. I always had a relationship with the Lord, but it wasn't until about two years ago that I surrendered my life to Him and began a close walk with the Lord."

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding"--Proverbs 3:5
