Eddy Raven’s kind of music is rich in lyrical imagery and strong in artistic roots. He has been writing and playing a mixture of rock, country, Cajun and blues since he was a Louisiana teenager. In fact, his first single release for the Georgia-based Cosmos label, “Once A Fool”, was one of his own compositions.
He gained a huge amount of all-around knowledge working at Lafayette’s La Louisianne label selling records and working in the facility’s sound studios. It was there that Raven first worked with the great regional stars such as Professor Longhair, Dr. John, Dale and Grace (“I’m Leaving It All Up To You”) and John Fred and the Playboy Band. The great Bobby Charles (“Walking To New Orleans” and “See You Later Alligator”) lived only a few miles away. He cut one of Eddy’s songs and became something of a songwriter mentor to the young writer/artist.
