Artist Interview: Ed Harrington
Tell us about yourself and your music
I was born on June 4 1970 in Riverside, NJ. I had heart surgery when I was 5 years old. Before that My mom said a one day stay in the hospital turned out to be 6 weeks in intensive care. My father had left when I was 2 years old. I had a very loving and good childhood growing up in the 1970’s. Then when I was 17 years old my father called me for the first time. I do not remember him because I was 2 years old when my parents split because of his serious herione addiction. I went to meet him for the first time when I was 20. Prior to that I was a lead singer in heavy metal bands and had long hair. The first time I met my dad I also met God. My father and his girlfriend were going to church and that was the first time I got saved. Since then my music direction changed to writing christian songs singing and playing the keyboard. My life has changed. I now have a beautiful wife and son and I continue to write christian songs.
