Don Eaton is a nationally acclaimed singer-songwriter, recording artist, lecturer, and seminar leader. He has released 5 albums of original songs and tours nation-wide as a concert artist, workshop leader, and guest lecturer-teacher. He also has toured in Canada, England, Europe, Central America, and the former Soviet Union. Don has developed a national reputation for powerful, lyric-oriented music and also for inspiring and practical compassion education classes, seminars and retreats. He has received several awards for the lyrical content of his songs, and has appeared on numerous radio and television programs. His song “I AM ONE VOICE” received national attention when Suzanne Somers introduced it on THE OPRAH WINFREY SHOW. The song was also the powerful emotional conclusion of the ABC MOVIE OF THE WEEK, “KEEPING SECRETS: THE SUZANNE SOMERS STORY.” The talk show and the movie were used as the vehicles to launch the song as the national “anthem” of Adult Children of Alcoholics. The song is now being sung by various groups across the U.S. and around the world. Don plays both six and twelve string acoustic guitar, and reviewers have compared his voice to Don MacLean, John Denver, and Dan Fogelberg. One reviewer states: “Eaton is a warm, open, life-affirming person whose songs have real content and deep messages really worth listening to.”

After 22 years as director, Don retired and Small Change ceased operation as a non-profit. Don is still active as a singer-songwriter, recording artist and has just released his 5th CD.
