Eden Atwood

Eden Atwood began singing jazz in Memphis, TN, at Shakey’s Pizza Parlor at age three years old. Singing jazz came naturally to Eden. Her father, Hub Atwood, was a writer and arranger for the likes of Frank Sinatra, Harry James, Stan Kenton and Nat King Cole.

When Eden was five years old, divorce split the Atwood family and Eden moved to Montana with her mother, the daughter of Pulitzer Prize winning author, A.B. Guthrie, Jr. Eden’s mother kept her love of music alive by encouraging her participation in musicals.

At 15, Eden was fronting a busy band of musicians twice her age in her hometown. Eden left two years later to attend the University of Montana's drama department. At 19, Eden's father died and Eden, keenly feeling the loss, set out for Chicago.
