Although Born in Lima, Peru, Eduardo, who goes by the stage name, Brown Kid, has spent most of his life in the US. He currently resides in Alabama with his wife and children. He has performed his brand of music throughout the Southeast, playing, recording and collaborating with many different artists and experimenting with many different styles of music. His 2013 EP, Rusty Strings, was nominated for Toronto’s independent music awards, and featured on local and national radio.
Eduardo’s newest single, “Sunrise,” is gaining national attention and will be featured on his yet to be titled upcoming new CD. Alec Cunningham of Memphis Blank Newspaper said of Eduardo, “The music has a carefree attitude and combines sunny and beach vibes. The melodies of the songs seem to get people engaged.”
Eduardo said he grew up listening to the traditional music of Peru, but it was the traditional roots of soul artists of the states that influenced his music performances. “I really enjoyed the folk rock music,” he said. As a student at Auburn University, playing music was a way for Eduardo to pay his bills. “The next thing I knew I was getting booked at different venues, and playing at friends parties,” he recalled. “It just evolved from there with friends growing out of the college scene and moving to different locations and then calling me and inviting me to come play a show where they lived.”
Eduardo’s music has a very bright Caribbean, Reggae feel to it. “I started out with more of an acoustic rock, and even punk feel to my music,” he said. “As I evolved though, I enjoyed telling stories, and that’s when the folk thing came in more. And I liked the way the Reggae beats allowed me to keep tempo going since I enjoyed playing by myself,” he said. Look for Eduardo’s new music later this year.
