I Know Whats Going on
'I know what's going on' is an acoustic based chill out album. A collection of twelve original songs recorded by one of Australia's foremost producers, Cameron McKenzie, a co-writer of the Androids hit 'Do it with Madonna' and collaborator of Australian music legend Mark Seymour. Launched in November '03 to a full house at the Boite World Music Cafe, the album flows through a range of styles and influences ranging from the rag time feel of the title track to the pop/country tinged 'Richer man'to the jazz feel of 'When I'm feeling lonely'. Eddie Cole comes from the Dandenong Ranges east of Melbourne Australia. A singer/guitarist in the vein of Ben Harper and Don McLean he started out as an underage teenager on the Melbourne pub scene before drifting and busking his way around Australia and the UK. A religious conversion saw him turn his back on the secular music scene for 10 years up until the recording of this album. With a voice described as being like 'crushed velvet' the themes of his songs are universal with lyrics cutting straight to the heart and guitar playing and song structure incorporating elements of folk,jazz,blues, country, and gospel.
