After years of playing in bands that were never quite the right fit, Samuel Hunt decided in early 2010 to make a change. “I made the decision to stop playing with musicians just because it was convenient and to seek out the kind of people I knew could help me make something happen,” says the Eddie Doldrum frontman. From there, Eddie Doldrum slowly started adding members until the full outfit was assembled in the fall of that year. After much writing, rewriting, practicing and more practicing, the band began playing shows, building their fanbase and developing their emotionally charged sound. “Music is the most important thing to me,” says Hunt. “This band makes it possible for me to be a real part of it,” Eddie Doldrum just released their first EP and are looking forward to some upcoming tours where they hope to “spread their roots across the Midwest.”
