Kaley Lane Eaton is a composer and vocalist currently based in Seattle, WA. Her work has been performed across the US and internationally, in venues ranging from Hong Kong concert halls, to the streets of Skid Row in Los Angeles. Seattle's Live Music Project calls Eaton's work "startling," "intriguing" and "enjoyable ... fresh, thoughtful and, importantly in the nova music area, pleasant on first hearing." With a background as a multi-genre vocalist, instrumentalist, and teacher, Eaton's work crosses genre boundaries, exploring how the voice, body, and unconscious world of the performer can provide musical data through electronics and improvisation. Her new electroacoustic opera, Lily, will premiere in Summer 2017, supported by 4Culture's Tech Specific program. In Spring of 2017, Eaton will be an associate artist at the Atlantic Center for the Arts with master artist Derek Bermel.

In addition to her life as a performer and creator, Eaton is a seasoned teaching artist and arts education activist, having taught in socially conscious music programs around the US. She has developed and taught courses at the Los Angeles Philharmonic's Associate Composer program, Youth Orchestra Los Angeles, Boston Public Schools, Watertown Children's Theatre (Boston), Arts Corps (Seattle), Creative Music Adventures (Seattle), and the University of Washington (Seattle).

Eaton is currently a DMA candidate in composition at the University of Washington and is a Teaching Artist with the Seattle Symphony.

Great piano and voice teacher

Ms. E combined talents as an accomplished pianist and singer were a blessing for our daughter. Under her tutelage she has blossomed into a lovely musician. When she decided to take on voice as well Ms.E skillfully guided her and wisely allowed her to choose music she loved.

We miss her energy and unique abilities as a teacher to inspire a love of music. Her weekly visits were always met with great anticipation and left our daughter singing up the stairs.
