CD Release Party: Between Hello & Goodbye with singer Stephanie Corby & Italian drummer Fabio Pirazzolo
“Confessional one moment, rambunctiously disarming the next, few modern folk singers can own a coffeehouse stage as completely as Greenway” BOSTON GLOBE
“Style, passion and sheer musicality” FOLK & ACOUSTIC MUSIC EXCHANGE
“A profoundly rich poet and musician. Folk Music is too narrow a description” ON THE SQUARE
Contemporary folk-pop-rock singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist GREG GREENWAY introduces in concert his shining new solo album Between Hello & Goodbye, with special musical guests onstage: Stephanie Corby, vocals & Fabio Pirozzolo, drummer/multi-percussionist & singer.
Nurtured in the fertile ’70s Boston music scene, he has long been recognized as one of the strongest and finest voices in contemporary folk music.
His music has taken him to notable stages from Carnegie Hall to NPR’s All Things Considered and Mountain Stage and abroad. But he’s not all about big stages. He retains a love of coffeehouses from his earlier days, and considered it a career high when his song “Driving in Massachusetts” played on Car Talk.
Musically, his guitar, piano, ukulele, and melodica reflect inspiration from all over the map – gospel, rock, blues, jazz, and world music but firmly rooted in the singer/songwriter tradition traced back to the socially aware music of Woody Guthrie. Onstage he exudes a magnetic energy, high-spirited give-and-take, honest empathy, fun and good humor that make him simply irresistible to audiences.
His notable songs “What Must Be Done” and “In the Name of Love,” (a lead- in to the U2 classic “Pride”) have been sung by choirs internationally. These two works helped shape his evolution into an artist not only uncommonly entertaining, but sensitive, bold and powerful on contemporary issues and our common humanity.
“Fresh and engaging…timeless songs…an artist who is master of his craft” FOLK MUSIC NOTEBOOK
