About this project

Hi, my name is Ron Greene.  I’m a singer/songwriter/guitarist based in the great  Pacific Northwest.  I was raised in Phoenix, Az – and was exposed to music of all types by my dad (listening to various albums – Frampton, Larry Graham, Earl Klugh, Jonathan Butler, Stevie Wonder – on his floor), my sisters (Queen, Barry Manilow, Bee Gees, Andy Gibb, etc) and friends (going to concerts – their music – Prince, Parliment, Gap Band, Roger Troutman & ZAP, Van Halen, REO Speedwagon and ultimately the Christian groups – White Heart, Sweet Comfort Band, Servant, Steve Taylor, and Phil Keaggy).  I started writing songs at the age of 15, along with playing guitar and piano – also began playing in bands at this time and got to experience performing in front of a wide range of audiences.  At the age of 21 - I started working at a local recording studio, playing guitar, keyboard, and arranging other client’s recordings.  It was during this time period that the desire to record an album of my material started to grow. 

Fast forward 18 years – the stars align and I begin recording my debut project Sketches.  What began as a simple acoustic and vocal project turned into an album that had simple arrangements along with more full instrumentation song’s.  Self-funded - the project took two years to complete.  Once completed, I assembled an “all-star” band for my CD release party and for support in shows throughout the region.  Since “Sketches” was released in March 2008 – we’ve played all over the Northwest as well as performing in New York City - playing many shows including opening for the likes of Kings X, Rehab, Paulo Nutini, Serena Ryder, Zee Avi, Tyrone Wells, David Barnes and Brittany Shane.  I’ve talked about recording a new project for quite some time and after a couple of attempts through various means, I feel its time to take matters into my own hands and, with YOUR help, get the tunes out there. 

The “When the Feelings Right” Kickstater project is for the recording, releasing and promotion of the “When the Feelings Right” CD by Greene (the band).  The funding will cover the following:

  1. Recording the project – Studio time, hiring a producer, hiring an engineer, mixing and mastering the project
  2. Releasing the project – Graphic design of CD, duplicating and packaging the project.
  3. Promoting the project – marketing and promotion to various main stream media, colleges, and online media.

I’ve been humbled and am deeply appreciative of the support that I’ve received through the years by my fans/friends.  I look forward to partnering with fans, old AND new, in continuing this musical journey with the completion and distributing of this project.  Thank you.  Thank you. THANK YOU!!!!
