Announcing Greane’s debut album “Nouveau”…
“Nouveau” is a contemporary folk album exploring the boundaries of hope, identity, acceptance, compassion and honesty. “I envision a world where people can show their true colors without dividing lines between races and cultures, where they can live in hope while experiencing fairness and equality in class, color, and gender. I believe we can get there one person at a time by realizing our commonalities as people, hearing each others personal stories, and practicing listening and empathizing on a daily basis.
“Each track has a different personality and purpose,” says Greane about Nouveau’s lineup of songs. “Flower” was inspired by William Blake, Allen Ginsberg and the pathos of coming of age in the modern world, the bittersweet loss of childhood innocence, and the wisdom and riches that are gained thereby. Witness a beaten soot covered flower shining in the forest the beauty of age and experience!
Flying back from the West Coast the pilot mentioned our landing could be a bit “bumpy” because of a popped tire! Realizing, after fortunately a safe landing that life is to short “Charlottesville” is inspired by taking a chance with no sure bet because life is too short and you only live once. The piece conveys living with no regrets, a conscious choice at letting your heart take the lead and to believe in the rewards of the unexpected where everything happens for a reason.
“Gone Astray”, inspired by a tragic shooting in a Seattle café, is a “life preserver” for those who feel lost at sea in a world often senseless and confusing in its everyday violence. Ironically upbeat, this song praises the value of the little gifts in life we forget everyday.
“On Your Own” celebrates individuality, identity, and the idea that every single human being has a special gift and unlimited potential to unlock and forge their destiny by utilizing that gift. To take in that moment where you overlook an endless highway briefcase in hand will forever find a home in hopefully our warmest memories through life.
“Angel,” was inspired by someone very special who showed me love’s delicate nature can last forever. Most of the time our answer is standing right before our eyes!
Greane will be on tour this Winter/Spring/Summer/ Fall 2017. Check the tour schedule for upcoming tour dates. In addition to performances at clubs, coffeehouses, festivals, performing arts centers, churches, galleries, and house concerts, he currently offers a performance/storytelling program for colleges and universities entitled “True Colours – Concert and Storytelling”
