Eddie Bush teeth on guitar
“Eddie Bush has been in some enviable places, playing gigs such as the Newport Folk Festival, Farm Aid, even the CBS Early Show. Bush has extraordinary talent — and a drive to match. His calm, easy-going demeanor is contrasted with a deep intensity of spirit, a single-minded focus on the road ahead.”
Jim Tatum, Summerville Journal Scene
“Eddie Bush is one of the Lowcountry’s most versatile artists.
Striking a chord with the country’s heartland, his country-pop efforts have popular appeal.”
Charleston Magazine
“Eddie Bush is absolutely one of the most amazing performers we’ve ever had in here, period… national, regional or local!”
Jim Malonee, House of Blues (national talent buyer)
“Eddie Bush is one of my favorite singers I’ve heard.”
Eric Johnson, GRAMMY winning guitarist
“Eddie LIVE is more of a frenzied religious experience”
Jim Tatum, The Beaufort Gazette
“Amazing… to say the least!”
Jeff Healy, Blues Guitar Legend
“Eddie Bush is more than just another lightning-fingered gunslinger. He is a consumate musician and a force to be reckoned with as more and more fan are exposed to his heartfelt, wildly entertaining stage show”
Coast Magazine
“This Charleston-based young gun slinger’s chops are already legendary in serious guitar circles, and he sings well in the bargain. His live shows appeal to six-string aficionados and casual rock fans alike. See him now!”
Creative Loafing (Savannah)
“Eddie Bush is absolutely one of the finest guitarists that I have ever had the pleasure of seeing, period. Not only here in the Lowcountry but anywhere. He is the complete package. Is he fast? Sure. But like many others, he does not rely solely on the fleetness of his fingers. His touch, feel and timing are all amazing bordering on absurdly amazing, to say the least.”
Johnny Cox, Lowcountry Underground
“Succeeding in music requires great tenacity. Opportunities are typically hard to come by in the early stages of a musician’s quest, and it takes real commitment to stay focused on goals becoming reality. The music business is one of the toughest businesses to excel in, and it demands the most intense effort, the willingness to go above and beyond for what often adds up to little or no monetary reward, but instead the hopeful step forward that leads to bigger things.”
Eddie Bush
“The students were entertained by singer/songwriter Eddie Bush, who wrote The Power of You, which is based on EdisonLearning’s eight core values. Mr. Bush is a passionate supporter of education, and performs for students all over the country to increase their love and appreciation of music.”
Peter Milosheff, The Bronx Times
“Eddie Bush is a young gunslinger guitar monster from Charleston. Quite simply put, he is the best live guitarist I have ever seen. He is one of those geniuses whose genetic makeup includes parentage somewhere down the line of Gibson Les Paul and Fender Stratocaster.”
Jim Tatum, Summerville Times
“… it is, without a doubt, his talented guitar playing skills that held me captive. Like those who are guitar fanatics, Eddie has a mastering way with the strings that stands out on this album and is certain to draw the attention of guitar lovers.”

Eddie Bush has been hooked on playing the guitar since age 4 when his father traded a set of golf clubs for an old acoustic. From that point forward, making music became his heart’s primary desire. His passionate, unending drive and innate musical talent had this self-taught, guitar-slinging singer/songwriter performing original material at a school talent show by the age of 13.

Eddie became a veteran of the Southeastern music scene with multiple CD releases to his credit before taking it to the national level in 2005 with his Infinity Nashville debut CD, Eddie Bush. The disc produced the Billboard Hot Country Single “Hard To Stop A Train”, as well as a video of the tune, which earned rotation on several music related TV channels, including Great American County (GAC).

The momentum built from “Hard To Stop A Train’s” unexpected success led to the attention of Nashville notables, and by 2006 Eddie had become a member of the harmony group One Flew South, created and produced by GRAMMY® winning hit songwriter Marcus Hummon. The band was featured on the soundtrack of Disney’s The Fox & The Hound 2, and signed to Decca Records/UMG in November the same year. One Flew South’s full length disc Last Of The Good Guys produced the top 40 Billboard Hot Country Single “My Kind Of Beautiful” as well as its popular video, recently named in the top videos of 2008 by GAC.

Eddie has performed at major events throughout the U.S., including Farm Aid, the Newport Folk Festival, Country Thunder, CMA Fest, and the B.R. Cohn Festival. He has toured with GRAMMY® winning guitarist Eric Johnson as well as Phil Vassar, .38 Special, Julianne Hough and Rusted Root. He has shared concert billing with some of today’s biggest artists, including Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood, Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Little Big Town, Jimmy Buffett, Dave Matthews, John Mellencamp, Willie Nelson, and Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Writing songs and theme music for other artists, commercial businesses, and television has become an added focus in Eddie’s ever developing career. In 2014, he took his writing to Music Row in Nashville, signing with Blue Guitar Music. A prolific songwriter, Eddie has been commissioned to write songs for various efforts, including: Fraternal Order of Police fund raising (“The Thin Blue Line”), corporate education giant Edison Learning’s motivational anthem (“The Power Of You”), and theme music for the national TV show on Fox Sports South, A Piece Of The Game.

Eddie wrote or co-wrote the vast majority of songs featured on his 17 releases as well as One Flew South’s Last of the Good Guys. Eddie has co-written with legendary songwriters JD Souther (many Eagles’ hits), Marcus Hummon (“Bless The Broken Road”, “Cowboy Take Me Away”, “Born To Fly”), Mark Hudson (Aerosmith’s “Living On The Edge”), Eliot Kennedy (multiple Spice Girls’ hits), Billy Mann (Pink) and a host of others.
