Lance Britt – Across the Canvas Productions

It was a cold Wednesday morning in March, that same year "Around the World in Eighty Days" would win 5 Oscars, and just moments after his birth his arrival into this world was brought to light on one of North Carolina's earliest television stations located in the Piedmont Triad community. Only 9 years earlier WFMY was one of only 66 FM radio stations in the United States.

Soon after his birth he was swept away to Florida where he would spend his toddler years listening to music his aunt would play on her guitar and the stories his uncle and friends would tell about the bright lights of Las Vegas and the entertainment business.

By age 9 he had recorded a single about his girlfriend and played rhythm guitar in a rock band. He later went on to write 3 books and had a short story featured in an educational journal and was still just in Junior High.
He began traveling back and forth from California to North Carolina to spend time with his father on the West Coast and on the East Coast with his mother. While in California in the mid-seventies he began managing rock bands and recording his own music. He formed his first record company is 1978 then in April of 1997 sold off controlling interest in his music business and bought an entertainment company. In March of 1999 shortly after his birthday he co-founded the non-profit company Eno River Media Productions, know as ERMP, with Anthony Dowling and Lester Langdale. In 2003 he reorganized his own entertainment and production company and renamed it Across the Canvas Productions.

Somewhere between all this he had a popular college radio song Rage in 1979, a popular rock radio song Breaking Rope in 1982, and a well known sound track CD Broken Rocking Chair in 2001. He starred in The Dash Show television series from 1999 to 2004. He has appeared on stages throughout the USA for more than 5 decades. He is also an award winning writer, poet, artist, and educator.

Nowadays he spends his time making music, writing, producing, and directing the entertainment video journal Blank Surfaces. The program, now in its 16th season, highlights talents from in front of and behind the cameras from around the world and various other projects for Across the Canvas Productions including, working on new music for the return of The Dash Show and creating a series of shorts for ERMP.

Mr. Britt was named President of the Board of Trustees for ERMP in 2012.
