Back to You

by Keith Greeninger and Water

Heartfelt, insightful, soulful, foot-stomping fun. Great tunes and strong vocal harmonies set off these finely crafted portriats of the human condition. Give it a listen...before you know it you'll be out of your seat and dancing.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
It's not easy to describe Keith Greeninger's music. As an artist his writing and delivery have challenged the traditional descriptions of today's singer-songwriter movement. Audiences and critics alike have been drawn by the soulfulness and imagery of his phrasing and the power of his voice, and are quick to state that Keith has a sound and a musical vision that is solidly his own.

Born and raised in Northern California, Keith has traveled and lived throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico and Central America. His music has been deeply influenced by his work with Native American and Latin cultures, and the scope of his songwriting evokes a feeling that is uniquely western in spirit. In 1997 he was named a winner at both the New Folk Song Writing Competition in Kerville, Texas and the Napa Valley Folk Festival in Northern California.

Keith first started gaining attention on the national music scene in 1989 as a principal songwriter, guitarist and vocalist for the groundbreaking trio City Folk. The group, known for its powerful blend of lyric, harmony and instrumental virtuosity, quickly became one of the prominent new folk acts in Northern California, winning the San Francisco Best of the Bay music award and having their music paired with Bruce Cockburn and Buffy Saint Marie on a compilation CD to benefit Native American political prisoner Leonard Peltier.

In the six years City Folk were together the group released two nationally acclaimed CDs and contributed to numerous national and international projects and recordings. Their music still remains a favorite among audiences, DJs and club owners throughout the folk community.

In the two years that followed Keith took time out from the road to immerse himself in the birth of his first child and to redefine his musical direction. Then, in 1996 Keith was asked to help design and oversee the development of a multi-cultural music and wilderness festival in British Columbia. It was an experience that found Keith living and performing in Canada for a period of time, working with various channels of the Canadian music industry, and building strong artistic ties with Cree and Blackfoot teachers, dancers and singers that have become the center of this annual event.

Upon returning to California, Keith began recording his first solo release, Wind River Crossing. Released in September 1997, Wind River Crossing is a rich engaging piece of work that reveals something new with each listening. Form its sweeping title cut to the award-winning finale North to South East this album resonates with the power of the land and the spirit of humanity, a seamless weaving of depth, imagery and passion that Keith has become notorious for.

Keith's newest release, Back to You, couples Keith with the Bay Area band Water. Fronted by multi-instrumentalist extraordinaire, Dayan Kai, Water brings an uplifting, full acoustic/electric blend to Keith's music, reminiscent of Jacksone Browne, CSN or The Eagles. Vocal harmonies between Dayan and Keith add a rich and compelling element to these instantly engaging songs. Back to You is sure to become a classic among old Keith fans as well as new ones.

A New Fan!

Saw Keith Greeninger in San Jose, California, and Became a Follower!
Why doesn't the real talent in the world get noticed? These guys are awesome, and sent chills up my spin. They are what Music was intended to be.

Met Kieth and Dyan at The Gathering, Island Lake,
I met Keith and Dayan at The Gathering, Island Lake Lodge, Fernie, B.C. The only thing more beautiful then the scenery was the music by Keith & Dayan. It stuns anyone when I play their CD. I often can not hold back my emotions listening to Back To You. Please come back to Fernie.

incredible,awesome,fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The CD is once again a Greeninger success! A must buy for anyone who has a soul and a heart! Can't wait for the next one!

Fantastic
I don't why Keith Greeninger is not a huge international star like Bruce Cockburn or Jackson Browne. Keith's songs speak to the heart int he same way those mega-stars' songs do and the musical pallet he uses with his incredible sidemen highlights the musicality of the songs. Soul-brother Dyan Kai is to Keith as David Lindley is to Jackson, except he plays more instruments and all well. Then there is Keith's distinctive voice, deep and gravely at times, sweet and high like an angel at other times. Virtuosity is one word to describe Mr. Greeninger, and universal is another. Unless you have been asleep under a rock for a long time or are just in denial about what it is to be a human, there is something for you in Keith's music. Shine on, little Brother of the sun, moon, stars, and Earth. The world is simply a better place with Keith and his music in it than it otherwise would be.

I heard a song from the CD on the radio one day, I was awestruck! I wrote down Keith's name and started searching.Found him on CD Baby ordered and now I don't take it out of my CD player...I get chills, goosebumps every time I listen to it. Thank you for being a songwriter!

The Best!!
This recording reflects the absolute passionate, heartfelt, connected music which brings Keith, Dayan, and Steve to the top of my all-time favorites. As a music director and program director for a Eugene public radio station I've heard countless thousands of artists in all genres that I like. No one's music moves me like Keith's. He's simply the best.

Susan Snider

Livelier music than his "Glorious Pheasant" CD (which is awesome, as well!)--a w
Anyone planning to see Greeninger and Dayan live should have this CD in their collection. While nothing rivals the energy of seeing them on stage, this offering is a superb example of why Greeninger and his music receive so much play time in our home.

We Love You!
