Eddie Farhat has been a musician nearly his whole life. He first picked up the guitar as a teenager and after hearing the Beatles for the first time at age 20, he knew music would always be his passion.
In fact, it was Lennon and McCartney’s songwriting that appealed to him most of all — and is what inspired a lifelong dedication to writing. He first started playing his songs on the bar scene in his 20s with his band. Soon after, he met then president of Columbia Music, Billy Sherill, who liked what he heard from Eddie but advised him that if he wanted to get serious about music, he should come to Nashville for some polishing.
As sometimes happens, life took Eddie on a different path than he’d initially intended — and so instead of making the journey to Nashville, Eddie started a family in his mid-20s and settled into life as part of his family’s business. For the next 40-plus years, Eddie’s path orbited music but never became its primary focus until one day, inspired by Garth Brooks, he decided it was time to be brave and try his hand at music full time again.
That brings us to today, where Eddie has produced an album full of original songs, including his first single, a breakout hit on indie radio called “The Same Man” (which was done in partnership with record producer Chris Spierer). Fan reaction and critical feedback has been extremely positive — with radio stations across the U.S. and abroad picking up his music.Co-Producer of Eddie Farhat’s “The Same Man”
