GRN MUSIC- A non-profit resource for lovers of music. Greg R. Norton's piano soundscapes reference a place below the transient, shifting tumult of the world... a place beneath appearances, closer to the living heart of life. Herein you'll find new melodies... improvised on the spot, and spun from my strong lyrical sense... and ones you'll recognize, as well. Listen, and you'll find impressions of : Traditional favorites, like 'The Star of the County Down,' and Stephen Fosters' 'Hard times Come again No More.' You'll hear the likes of Van Morrison, Kitaro, and Steve Goodman, and songs sung by Ray Charles, Joni Mitchell, the Beatles, The Pretenders, Joannie Madden, Tommy James and the Shondells, Frankie Laine, the Waterboys ( Scott & Wickham,) and Pat Boone. You'll also recognize melodies sung by Percy Sledge, Jo Stafford, Celine Dion, Crystal Gayle, Syd Straw, & 10cc (Eric Stewart & Graham Gouldman,) Too, you'll find internet favorites, like Sheryl Clapton, Larry Ludwick, Will Kimbrough, Todd Shaeffer, and Shawn Nelson... as well as songwriters like Helmy Kresa, Carroll Loveday, Haven Gillespie and Beasly Smith, Bill Browning, Griffin House, Hoagy Carmichael, Henry Mancini, and Johnny Mercer... and others I haven't listed.... Too many to name!
