Greg Maroney is a very gifted pianist. The original piano music found in his CDs is beautifully written and flows as if it comes directly from nature. His songs have a warmth and naturalness that speak to the listener, bringing them closer to their own heart. His life and surroundings, along with his past and present, all add to the stories that are behind his wonderful music.

Greg has studied classical and jazz piano since age 5. He also studied classical Indian Music and music of the Middle East, and gave performances on the sitar and saz in the early 1970's. Currently he continues to compose and perform in concert both locally and nationally. He and his wife live in an old farmhouse in the country they share with her parents, cats, dogs, chickens, and Greg's vegetable garden.

Listening to his music, you will find yourself reminiscing, smiling, waltzing and dreaming.

About the Music

"Greg Maroney captures a full spectrum of emotions and musical colors, and presents them in an accessible form that deepens with each listening."

Kathy Parsons, MainlyPiano.com

"Greg considers himself to be a Modern Romantic solo piano artist. Another point of reference that came to mind while listening to his gorgeous piano melodies was the pastoral Windham Hill sound as exemplified by many well-loved artists over the years such as George Winston, Liz Story, David Lanz, and others. Greg has been prolific in his recording career, having composed and released 12 CDs of original piano music..."

Inspirations

I have been asked many times what inspires me, where does the music come from, what drives me to create. Simple.

Nature. Wind, water, birds flying, plants growing, dogs barking, chickens squawking. The love of my wife.

Listening to Vladimir Horowitz playing all the great classical composers. Or Robert Earl Keen singing Armadillo Jackal. Discovering Pink Floyd 20 years later. A great cup of coffee. Creating something with my own hands. Growing enough in the vegetable garden to share with friends and still have enough to then savor all winter. The sound of a freshly tuned tiller or chainsaw. The sound and feel of a freshly tuned piano. Building my barn with only hand tools. In short, all the usual things that surround us day to day.

I hope you find music in your world and your world in my music.
