© 2018 by Eli Wise


Eli Wise writes about transitions, suburbia, distant planets, and current affairs, all shown through an emotional-personal lens. He shows the surreal in the ordinary, often pulling on mythic archetypes.  He is a composer, performer, multi-instrumentalist, and educator.

He brings a unique lens to his work as a queer transgender man who has feet in multiple worlds and perspectives.  Themes of transformation, hidden natures, and imagined realities saturate his work. 


He has worked as a guitarist with Custom Made Theatre and as a composer with Theatre of Yugen. He has performed at numerous Bay Area venues including: Z space, El Rio, Hotel Utah Saloon, 50 Mason Social Club, Smileys, and Neck of the Woods.  He has self-produced three albums and is production for the fourth.
