Songs, and the music and rhythm that go with them. Since I can remember, it's all I've ever really believed in. Systems come and go, but music is a constant soundtrack to our lives. For me, writing and recording has been an obsession, based on saving by being saved. I wanted to write music the first time I heard it. Some of my earliest memories are of staring at piano keys and randomly hitting notes. To be able to affect someone's life by music is my core function. I started playing piano around the age of five or so, and started writing finished pieces at 22. Had to live a little. I also play guitar, bass, and drums. I formed The Eldridge Band with the sole intent of bringing another point of view to the world table, in hopes of helping someone deal with the cards life has dealt and to come out okay on the other side. I am a student of the Blues and Rock, and I will always pay homage to that. And, let's not forget the multi-colored rooms where classical music takes us. I'm from Charleston, South Carolina, and now reside in Nashville. I am a Scorpio, and I love long walks on the beach and horseback riding.
