EDDY HUNTINGTON

 

Edward “Eddy” Huntington is an English pop singer who began his professional singing career in Italy. Huntington became popular in Europe and the former USSR mainly with his song “U.S.S.R.” which peaked at No.6 in Switzerland and No.23 in Germany.

Eddy Huntington was born in the northeast of England and moved to London at the age of 18, where he became a music video extra and model.

He was discovered by Baby Records, an Italian record label who took him to Milan to record the song “USSR” written by R. Turatti, M. Chieregato, and T. Hooker.

When “USSR” was released throughout Europe in 1986 on ZYX Records it became a big hit in mainland Europe and the Soviet Union and is widely popular to this day. Huntington went on to have other lesser-known hits such as “May Day” and “Meet My Friend”. He also released the album Bang Bang Baby in 1989.

Huntington left the music industry in the early 1990s and trained to become a primary school teacher in the UK.

In 2005 Huntington performed Discoteka ’80s concerts in Russia. These were two performances of European and Soviet 1980s pop stars held in Moscow and Saint Petersburg.

In 2011 Huntington recorded the brand-new song “Honey, Honey!” together with Russian Pop-Duo DiscoBonus.

Eddy Huntington released “Rainy day in May” on the 26th of February 2013. The track was inspired by the 60’s sound of Eddy’s musical hero Sir Cliff Richard.
