What people are saying:

Eric's style and versatility make him one of my favorite musicians to work with. He possesses the subtlety to make ballads emotional and lilting, the energy to add just the right rhythm to the blues, and the touch to add his own interpretation to modern classics. Plus, he's always professional, polished, and has a constant smile on his face... and those things alone would make him a joy to work with, but the fact that he's a great musician is the icing on the cake.
Whitney Walters, vocalist, bandleader, actress, Executive Director of International Center for The Upstate

When it comes to piano, Eric is the man. His presence of mind, musical knowledge, and technique are unparalleled. Throw in an outgoing personality, responsibility, a clear communication style and a healthy sense of humor, and you have Eric Barnhart. I would hire him for anything and trust that it will get done and will be done well.
Steve Smith, Brown Street Club - General Manager

Eric Barnhart is a gifted musician with an unparalleled ear for the sounds of classic rock and Americana. I've worked with Eric on dozens of tracks over a period of fifteen years and I can wholeheartedly recommend his craftsmanship as a writer, arranger, and performer.

What a pleasure it is to share music with Eric Barnhart, a talented pianist and musician! Added to his talents of technique, of writing, composing and performance is a soulful interpretation and presentation of music that is well beyond his years. Be it classical, Jazz, Pop - a true musical and creative soul shines through whatever music genre he performs. He is a master of his skills and mentor to other musicians both young and old. A listening audience can only gain pleasure from any music that he performs and shares with others. An evening with Eric at the keys is always a delight.
Scottie Hodge, local legend in visual and performing arts

Working with Eric is a true joy. His heart, talent and dependability are second to none. Eric is truly one of my favorite musicians to work with in worship settings, recording sessions or just last minute gigs. He puts his heart and soul not only into his music but his faith as well. I am honored to know him not only as a fellow musician but a friend.
Shane Martin, Nashville session guitarist & worship leader

I always look forward to my trips to Greenville for the opportunity to hear Eric play at Brown St. His style is very creative and allows me to feel at home even though I live 2,500 miles away.
