Eric M. Paździora (pronounced pazh-JOR-a) is a composer, a writer, a worship leader, a piano improvisateur, and a purveyor of really bad puns. This website contains examples of all of the above.
Eric's compositions have been performed by orchestras, instrumental ensembles, choirs, and soloists in venues from churches to coffee shops to concert halls. Published arrangements include Mick McGuire (Alliance, 2010) and Angels We Have Heard On High (GIA, 2010). A CD of original settings of hymns, New Creation, was released in 2010.
Eric also performs regularly as a pianist, including leading worship in churches in a wide variety of traditions, accompanying choirs and soloists, and as a member of the folk / americana band Thornfield. He is usually joined by his wife Carrie, a singer-songwriter and guitarist.
As a writer, Eric addresses issues including theology, music, fairy tales, spiritual abuse awareness, and sometimes just plain silliness. Articles by Eric have been published in periodicals, books, and websites including Enchanted Conversation, Precepts for Living, Urban Faith, Quivering Daughters, and Journal of Ethnodoxology.Bio | Publications | Compositions | Reviews | Blog | Interview | "New Creation" CD | "New Creation" MP3s | Contact
