About

Hello! My name is Eric Lane Barnes, and I am a writer, composer, songwriter, performer, conductor, pianist, Buddhist, philologist and wisecrackerist.

I write songs, stories and scores. Many of the songs I have written came from shows such as (Fairy Tales, The Stops, Simple Jim and His Four Fabulous Friends) as well as the many shows I wrote for the groups Captain Smartypants and Sensible Shoes. Quite a number of choral groups across the world have performed songs I've written: 'Carmina Ricotta,' 'Lambscapes,' 'Christmas Cheer,' 'The Caffeine Overload Polka,' 'Am I Welcome Here?' and 'Parade' - to name but a few. I've also provided underscore for several films (In-Laws and Outlaws, Waxie Moon) and numerous theater pieces.

I felt driven to create from as young an age as I can remember. I wrote piles of stories, songs and 'radio dramas' as a kid, recording them on my portable cassette player with my sisters and a few brave friends. Writing songs and telling stories filled me with a sense of wonder and joy that nothing else could match. When I began to get work in Chicago cabaret and theater as a music director and then as a composer and writer it seemed like 42nd Street* in real life. From that time to now I have been writing, composing, directing, conducting, performing and recording non-stop. Every year - every month - every day presents a fresh new page of possibility. And I would be pleased and proud for you to join me in this continuing journey.

I will be generating content to share with my Patreon supporters on a weekly basis. This content will fall into one (or more) of four categories: songs, stories, études (instrumental pieces) and éclairs: a treat that defies easy categorization. Or, perhaps it will be an actual éclair, because I love baking and éclairs are brilliant.

Thank you for being a Patreon supporter for ELB Presents! Any amount you can contribute is amazing and welcome. I look forward to and a cause for rejoicing - which will, of course, lead to more songs and stories.
