Eddie Coker (born 1960, Midland, Texas) is a children's singer/songwriter from Dallas, Texas, who has recently relocated to Manitou Springs, Colorado.
Coker grew up in Highland Park, Texas, attended Highland Park High School, and earned a degree in music from Southern Methodist University. Originally an opera singer, Coker has been writing, recording, and performing children's music since 1989. Coker's songs draw on a wide range of rock and popular influences ranging from The B-52's and Queen to classical music. His songs and performances also feature fanciful and quirky characters such as Fred, a "purple red-truck-driving duck", and Regina, a musician-turned-construction-worker octopus.
Coker has composed music for Barney & Friends, Chuck E. Cheese's, and Borders Books, and was the host of the Saturday-morning show "The Weird, Wild World of Eddie Coker" on Radio Disney. He typically performs over 200 concerts a year; fellow Texas musician Sara Hickman described him as "the James Brown of children's music... The hardest-working man in kids' show business."
