Classical in form, but with a modern feel, Eric’s music has drawn praise from fellow performers and entertainers:
“I remain a fan and look forward to him being more broadly discovered and to watching as his audience expands and appreciates his fine talents.”
- Joel Sill (Music Supervisor for films Munich and Forest Gump)
“From a musicians perspective, Eric Genuis’ music is brilliant- superbly crafted, unique in style and expertly performed.”
- John Debney (Film Composer for The Passion of the Christ and Spy Kids).
“What a refreshing and new approach to music. Eric's creations are moving, but exhilarating, thoughtful, but so enjoyable. You just want to listen to them over and over again!”
- Stephen McEveety, Executive Producer of Braveheart, We Were Soldiers, The Passion of the Christ
"What a pleasure to listen to not only a world- class pianist and composer, but an artist whose music translates beyond its genre to lift the audience to belief and hope in the power of the human spirit. I have been honored to be present at several of Eric's concerts. Every time with every unique audience nuance, those present felt the power of Eric's music and his words clearly elevated people.”
- Jim Caviezel, star of CBS hit drama, Person of Interest
Currently, Eric resides in Kentucky with his wife and beautiful children.

Eric Genuis spends a great deal of his time ministering to those in prison through his powerful gift of music and his moving testimonies. The reviews he receives from inmates are extraordinary! So many of them have regained hope and began to rebuild relationships with their loved ones because they have found purpose and learned to love again. In the last two years alone he has played concerts in over 45 prisons in the US. He has expressed his desire to play for those in custody on his Australian tour in Feb-Mar 2019.
Over the last few months communication has been undertaken with the Office of the Assistant Commissioner for Corrective Services NSW and in early December the Commissioner, Peter Severin, has given his approval for Eric and his musicians to play in several prisons in Sydney and the South Coast as a pilot program.
Eric does not charge any fees for these concerts, but there are necessary financial costs associated with this project. There will be approximately thirteen concerts in five correctional facilities across NSW. Please consider donating to this initiative so that we may bring Eric to many more inmates who desperately long to hear a message of hope and inspiration for their broken lives.
