Extraordinarily talented in the realm of dramatic musical ideas.  Barnes is obviously sensitive to the poetry and music to be found in commonplace circumstances and knows how to transmute them into a work of art.

Edward's work


From the theatrical stage to recordings and radio shows, I’ve enjoyed a wide-ranging musical career as a writer, performer, producer and executive. As my journey continues, I look forward to creating new opportunities, collaborations and connections, and to expanding the world of musical story-telling in exciting new ways.
