East coast shows and Radio Kingston interview/performance  

Back in Los Angeles after playing 4 shows in New York and Maine  It was so energizing to see family and close friends do and meet new folks. I love New England and New York summers  My special guest for the New York shows was sacred artist CC Treadway  We used to sing in high school together and it was so uplifting and magical to collaborate again after all these years  before our show in Kingston, NY we were inviting to chat with Jimmy Buff on Rafio Kingston and play a couple of songs live on the air.  Check out the archived segment at the link below! 

KINGSTON RADIO PERFORMANCE 

 

My song “It’s Only Love”in a new film starring Sharon Stone! 

The film “All I Wish” starring Sharon Stone is now out on Universal!  So proud to have one of my original songs playing at a bar in a scene towards the end of the film.  It’s a great movie that is funny, poetic and empowering. Congrats to writer / director Susan Walter Andy the entire cast and crew. I’m very grateful to Music supervisor Daniel Sosa for bringing my music to Susan and so very happy she loved this song.  Go see it - it’s wonderful!

Gigmasters’ BEST OF 2017 Award 

2017 was a great year for gigging.  I played everything from store openings and restaurants to tailgate parties and house concerts. Gigmasters was one of the ways I booked my gigs and I was happy to learn that I made it on their list of "Best of 2017."  This award is given to the artists who received the most excellent ratings/reviews from clients.  My goal is always to give my clients the greatest experience and add the most value to their events so that is why this particular award makes me happy.  I look forward to more gigs in 2018 and to meeting more wonderful people.  Thank you Gigmasters for the award!  

Weekly Residency at Bar Mattachine! 

I've started hosting a weekly night showcasing local talent. I play every week at 10:30pm and host 4 singer songwriters. First showcase starts at 8:30pm. After 11pm, there is an open jam where artist friends who came down are invited to play a song. It's been so great partnering up with Bar Mattachine and building this night of great live music and community!  Join me every Monday night.  

 

One of my song is in a movie starring SHARON STONE! 

So thrilled to announce that the song "It's Only Love" from my album Human is in a new film starring the one and only Sharon Stone!  I had the great honor of meeting this amazing artist at the premiere of the film and chatted with her after.  I was blown away when she told me she loved the song.  It was a beautiful moment for this singer songwriter.  The film is called "A Little Something for Your Birthday" and is so masterfully written and directed by Susan Walter.  Proud to have a song in this moving film.

 

 

 

KPFK 90.7FM Interview & Performance on IMRU Radio Magazine with Steve Pride & Abby Dees 

I had the distinct pleasure of visiting one of my favorite radio stations this week to play a couple of songs and do a mini interview!  KPFK has some amazing programming and 100% listener supported/funded.  It's one of the few places I know I can tune into to hear unbiased programming and news.  I was invited to come on the show IMRU Radio Magazine after the host caught my performance last month at the Dorian Awards in Hollywood. I had a great time chatting with hosts of the show and community leaders Abby Dees and Steve Pride.  I played my new single "Watch it Fall" and "Something Real" from my first albu/m HUMAN.  Here is my 14 minute segment!  


 

 

New Single "Watch it Fall" - 2/17/17 

The title track "Watch if Fall" from my forthcoming EP will be available on Spotify and iTunes on February 17th!  Look forward to sharing it with you. 

“Watch It Fall” shines light on the feelings that occur while chasing your dreams, as time becomes your enemy. “I first said six months, but it’s been six years and I am still here,” Eid sings. “I wrote this song at a low point when I was questioning the choices and sacrifices I was making to continue the vigorous quest of chasing my dreams and living as an artist,” Eid comments. “The building is a metaphor for his life. I thought that the idea of using vivid characters and their stories in this setting would be an entertaining and effective way to communicate the emotions of sadness, disappointment, despair.”  Even with its defeated lyrics, the track still has an upbeat melody that encourages the mind to keep going. 

New Single with Katie Ferrara 

Excited to be sharing a new single for the New Year!  I wrote this song with friend and artist Katie Ferrara on a songwriter retreat exactly one year ago.  We were feeling grateful to have another year, another chance, another day and wrote about it.  "Lucy for Another Day" is our New Years Song.  Our friend Mark Nguyen of Planet LA Records organized the trip and inspired us to write together.  The song inspires us and we hope it inspires you too.  We recorded it with producer Ted Wulfers (he makes a few appearances in the music video). The video has footage from the studio sessions and also from the artist retreat where we wrote the song in San Diego.  The song is now available on Spotify and iTunes.  You can watch the video on YouTube.  Enjoy and may this year bring you lots of love, peace, and joy.  Ain't we lucky for another day?

FAR-West and Northwest shows 

I had the fortune of attending a great folk music conference in October up in Bellevue, Washington.  FAR-West, was a wonderful weekend where I met some great musicians and industry folk.  I attended some informative and helpful workshops during the day played 8 private showcases in the evenings.  I drove up to Washington from Los Angeles and stopped off to play 3 shows on the way up in San Francisco, Medford OR, and Portland OR.  I was fortunate to see friends in every one of the cities and meet new folks.
