|Historie:||Eddy Huntington or (Eddie or Edward, all of which are me) was born on the 29th October 1965 in the North East of England. I was born the son of a coal miner and a housewife. I have three sisters, Anne, Enid and Sheila. I went to local schools in Peterlee and then to the local grammar school.
At 18 I left home to go and live in London. This was the start of a big change in my life. I started working in Pineapple Dance studios and did some work modelling and as a video extra. During this time I made contact with Baby Records in Italy. I listened to a demo of USSR and decided to record it. In Milano I made lots of new friends. Den Harrow, Tom Hooker, Jennifer Munday, Sharon, Baltimora and many others.
The eighties were fantastic, with good music, lots of fun and a little madness. I remember running around the streets of Verona with Den in the early hours of the morning shouting and singing at the top of our voices. I met a lot of big stars and had the priveledge to work with some very professional people.
My favourite Italo songs of that time would have been Spagna, Easy Lady
Tom Hooker, Looking for Love
and Sabrina, Boys Boys Boys. I had and still have a very commercial taste, which is probably why my songs all are fun and very commercial.
In the nineties, I was working in America, and Japan with a more distinctive HINRG sound
Meet my Friend and May Day. I also met Paris who I later married and had a baby with.
James Huntington, my son, was the start of a new beginning and the rest of my life. I gave up music and trained to be a teacher in order to have a proper family life. I never regretted that decision, as I have a fantastic son (born 3rd May 1991) and although I am no longer with his mother, she left me with this one fantastic gift.
As a qualified teacher, I now teach small children (currently 5 and 6 year olds) and I love it! The kids are great fun and the staff I work with are very good to me too!
Music is a hobby now and I can combine a little music with my other work. I have to be realistic too. It is not the80's and I am not getting any younger, so I should just take it for what it is and enjoy it like the rest of you!
No personal biography, would be complete with out mentioning Cliff Richard. He has been a major inspiration to me and although our published music is far removed from each others, I still enjoy both and will continue to play Cliff's songs side by side with my favourite dance tunes.
The highlight of my life today however has to be my wife, Lois. We were engaged and married within months during 2001. I am very much in love and continue to have a fantastic life in the North East of England with her. I will always sing, even if only to Lois and James (in fact anyone who wants to listen), but whatever I do from now on will have to be for Lois and James as well as for myself.
