Born 1972 in Houston, TX, Eddy Hobizal started classical piano studies at the age of five. From 1987 to 1991 he attended the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in Houston, with an emphasis on jazz performance. This led him to several awards and much national recognition, including Third Place at the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Piano Competition in 1989, as well as an appearance on the Disney Channel's Mickey Mouse Club Show that same year.
Eddy eventually went on to study at New York University, and began performing in Houston, New York, and beyond, working with such Texas talents as Sebastian Whittaker and the Creators. In 1999, he moved to Austin, and has since had the opportunity to perform and/or record with Sara Hickman, Eliza Gilkyson, Slaid Cleaves, Shawn Colvin, La Tribu, Will Taylor and Strings Attached, Tina Marsh and CO2, Dana Wheeler-Nicholson, and many other Austin-based artists. Eddy currently performs in Austin and elsewhere, teaches piano at a private studio and is currently promoting his new CD, Kinetic, which is available for order (physical and mp3 download) at www.eddyhobizal.com.
