East Coast Eddie Law may be one of the best kept secrets in Rock-N-Roll for a longtime. His battleship delivery and burning vocals have been knocking the socks off listeners for almost 25 plus years. Born in Brooklyn, New York, Mr. Law made his mark in steamy South Florida at the tender age of only sixteen; Right-Smack-dab in the middle of the 80’s big hair and big guitar revolution. His first band, Trial, won several Battle-of-the-bands and stood out amongst the many “copycat” bands of the time. He’s received classical training from renowned teacher Elizabeth Sabine (Axl Rose, Steve Perry, Michael Sweet ,Ron Keel and many others).
Eddie left the small pond of South Florida for the chance to become a Big Fish amidst the Los Angeles music explosion. He played with many national acts at a…ll the legendary clubs like, The Whiskey, The Roxy and the Troubadour. He parlayed his “live” success by capturing the coveted and lucrative World of studio vocal work.
In 1989 Mr. Law caught the attention of renowned manager, Wendy Dio of Niji Management (Ronnie James Dio, Rough Cutt, and Cold Sweat). It wasn’t long before he was playing with seasoned veteran musicians like House of Lords’ guitarist Mike Guy, Dio, bassist Jimmy Bain and Hericane Alice, drummer Jackie Ramos. Legendary Rough Cutt singer Paul Shortino.
In 1990, years of getting close but no cigar and the untimely death of his biggest fan, his dad, led Eddie back to his old stomping grounds of South Florida. Where Eddie ran across guitar legend Yngwie J. Malmsteen at The Button South. The timing couldn’t have been better as Yngwie was auditioning singers for a new band he was putting together. Could Eddie finally get his big break? Yngwie was shocked at Eddie’s similarities to one of his childhood hero’s; the lead singer of Deep Purple. Yngwie says, “Man, he looked just like a younger Ian Gillan and his voice sounded just as strong.”
The two became quick friends, playing many impromptu recordings at the maestro’s Miami studio and home. “I have to go back to Sweden for the Holidays, ” said Yngwie, but when I return, I will call you!” That call never came, however, and Eddie ventured back to Los Angeles. He would later find out from his guitar tech that Malmsteen decided to make a dream of his come true and hire an All-Swedish band.
Eddie Law didn’t give up for over two years, Eddie used his time to take care of his heartbroken mom and continue to write his now, more personal music.
Eddie worked behind the scenes too as a Tour Manager for bands, Haven’s Edge and D’Priest. It was humbling work as he toured the United States for a few months. “My dad made me promise to him that when he was gone, I would take care of my mom and I honored that.”
His writing matured and his creations during this time are some of the best stuff he’s ever done. “Now He’s Gone”, “Playing With The Devil” and “Billy the Kid” were three moving tribute songs to his dad and how he dealt with the loss. You can hear the emotion and pain in his voice.
Eddie took matters into his own hands and formed his own band, Law of the Land. He was soon headlining all the big clubs like, The Button South, Summers on the Beach, The Tree House, Rock Candy, Plus Five, and Rock Solid.
“L.A. was cool for awhile, but it got stale. I guess we outgrew each other. Florida may be more laid back than L.A., but I still hit my music hard, the way my fans like it.”
As the 21st century approached, Eddie continued writing songs and working as a Singer-for-Hire. To add to his arsenal, Eddie taught himself to play rhythm & lead guitar,Bass and drums. Now he records his songs the way he wants to. But still loves to work with great players.
