“Lonesome highway, where does it go? Why it calls me, I’ll never know?” Greane’s lyric from “On Your Own” sets the scene upon the unexpected journey of life we walk. “We are a sum of all our parts, the past, present and future. It is no surprise that every moment in life has a rhyme to its reason if we continue to believe.”
A native born New-England indie folk singer-songwriter, Arian Greane’s music expresses inspiration from the heart, “a place without words,” Greane states. Lending a caring and gentle hand Greane uses experiences as opportunities to touch and reach others through music. Leaving his hometown to follow a “voice within his heart,” he left a town that never really fit. “The mask I wore,” states Greane, “became a burden.” “Enduring unwelcome stares and occasional harsh words, I held true to my heart searching to find compassion, exploring the boundaries of hope, identity, acceptance, compassion and honesty envisioning a world where people can show their true colors stepping outside of social confines without dividing lines between gender, race and socio economic boundaries and live in hope sharing our commonalities as people.” His journey has led him throughout towns and cities in the United States, through fatherhood and coming to terms being abandoned by his own father, welfare lines, depression, hope and what it means to believe.
Graduating with honor from Berklee College of Music in 2008 with a degree in songwriting Greane’s first EP, “Nouveau” was released in 2017 while this fall 2018 Greane’s debut album”Amour,” will be released. Recorded by Mell Dettmer of Soli Studios the album features Seattle bassist Austin Quist and drummer Steve Kamke (The Bad Things) accompanied by mandolinist Ken Carlson and cellist Lori Goldston. A rootsy, organic, heart-felt album “Amour,” aims to engender the lives we live each and everyday.
