What words can be used to describe singer/songwriter Nick Eden? Driven, Talented, Determined. Gulfport, MS native Nick Eden got his start as most do, in the church. "For the longest, all I could remember was singing on Sunday mornings. Nothing else mattered." That love for song landed him a music scholarship to Alabama State University in Montgomery, AL. For years Nick put in work writing for independents across the southeast, and eventually joined the southern R&B powerhouse group YNOT. Along with Keith Ivey and Felton Thompson YNOT enjoyed international success as the group made headlines in the the south as well as Europe and Asia. In the middle of 2005 Nick Eden returned to his hometown of Gulfport, MS to treat an injury, and was greeted with the most devastating force to ever hit the Gulf Coast: Hurricane Katrina. After Katrina, Eden moved back to Montgomery where he was introduced to Multi-Platinum Producer, Kevin "KHAO" Cates(T.I., Young Jeezy, Paul Wall, R. Kelly). Now living in Atlanta, GA, Nick Eden has been a songwriter for Cates' production company Intaprize/GTT Entertainment, as well as the CEO of his own publishing company 1106 Productions. He has written for artists such as: Pop singer Cindy Gomez(Interscope Records), Actor/Singer Ashley Phillips(Bad Boy) of the Nickelodeon show "Romeo", and a host of others.
