Eddy aka Edward Huntington was born on the 29th October 1965 in Peterlee, North East of England. His music career started at school, where he was learning violin and oboe, though classical music was not the genre to arouse Eddy's attention. He loved artists like Eurythmics, Phil Collins and most of all - Cliff Richard. At 18, he left home and started working in London's Pineapple Dance Studios as a model. Thanks to this, he was proposed by Baby's Record to sing "U.S.S.R", which turned out to be one of the most successful Italo Disco hits in 1986.
