Here's what people are saying about the music of Eddie Meeks:
"Original music with substance and style"... Soren Baker, LA Times
"Meeks is bringing something different to the sound you usually associate with the dirty south Meeks' accent reminds me of Ludacris, you know how well he has done as an artists, Meeks is just as good..." Stu @ www.rawroots.co.uk
"I truly love "True Urban Grit". I spun it as the first song today on our 400th show in celebration of 400 Hip-Hop victories in Japan's 1st Hip Hop commercial prime time show"...Joey Slick, Joint One Radio Show, 76.1 InterFM, Tokyo, Japan
While landing the #1 spot twice on the Joint One Radio Show, thousands in the United States are getting a chance to experience what all the chatter is about.
Not waiting on the industry to "give" him a recording deal, he formed Asylum Entertainment in 1995. Asylum Entertainment has released over 8 independent records including Larger Than Life b/w Gunclappin' (1997), Larger Than Life The EP (1998), Da Unfold (2000), Art Varies From Head To Head, the HDZ Project (2000), True Urban Grit (2001), High Risk (2002), Bigguns (2003), and Meet Jon Doe (2003)..
His crew, PROPHETIX, is composed of lyricists Eddie Meeks and Mello Melanin and DJ/Producer Jon Doe. Currently the new video for their single "Gotcha" from the Meet Jon Doe album is making its rounds globally on video shows, the Internet, and the World Wide Web. Their music has charted in major markets such as Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta, Orlando, Seattle, the United Kingdom, Tokyo, Japan, and Sydney, Australia.
Outstanding accomplishments include a hot remix by Jon Doe on the world famous Beastie Boys Anthology DVD, performances at the legendary Apollo in Harlem, New York, and sharing the stage with the Grammy award winning Hip-Hop band, The Roots, KRS-ONE, Talib Kweli, Slum Village, Dead Prez, and MF Doom.
The originality of his music earned him a featured spot in several College Music Journal live showcases including the CMJ Musicfest in New York.
His music has been highlighted on television shows and commercials broadcast on BET, MTV, TNT, and Turner South and on various radio shows across the country.
Meeks hit the metro Atlanta area as a college freshmen at Southern Tech in Marietta, GA and has been striving toward the top ever since. He met Jon Doe while he was a college radio DJ at Western Kentucky University. When Jon graduated, he moved to Nashville to rock at Vanderbilt radio for one semester. Then he moved to Atlanta, linked up with the Memphis born emcee, and the rest is history.
But don't get the vision twisted - this artist is definitely hungry.
In hot pursuit of closing his first label deal, Meeks drove 3,000 miles from Atlanta to Los Angeles to make sure their music was being properly represented at the label. He has been known to use the "Guest List" tactic to get into clubs free to promote their art. Jon Doe came out of no where and added a whole new dimension to their arsenal.
Next up to bat is the highly anticipated solo album by Eddie Meeks called "After This I'll Holla". Striving to survive in this business of music, Meeks will do whatever it takes to make it known that he is here to stay!
