Eddie Low Profile

Adam Gifford
20 May 2013

When he signed as a solo act to Joe Brown’s label in 1970, the canny impresario billed him as the “voice in a million”. More than 40 years on and Eddie Low’s voice is still a gorgeous instrument, resonant and honeyed.

Born blind on 14 May, 1945, Eddie Low developed his musical talent and skills on a wide range of instruments at the Blind Institute in Auckland.
