02/08/14: I'll be heading to Whitworth University in Spokane, WA to lead a songwriting workshop 9am-12pm on February 22. The day will be capped off with a 1pm festival of my congregational songs and followed by a visit to nearby Colbert Presbyterian Church.
01/30/14: Just finished teaching the Leading Contemporary Worship interim class at Calvin College and am now headed into the three day worship extravaganza known as the 2014 Calvin Worship Symposium. I'll be teaching a Thursday songwriting seminar with Ruth Duck and Bruce Benedict, leading a Vesper service featuring my cantata Everlasting to Everlasting, and doing a workshop called The Seven Deadly Sins of Choosing Music for Worship.
12/09/13: On the heels of Half the Man are two other recordings: my song "The Weaver of Time" appears on the new Cardiphonia compilation, Canticles, and I've released a seasonal collection at NoiseTrade called A Greg Scheer Christmas Sampler. Wait--are you getting overwhelmed trying to keep track of all the recordings? Check out my new discography page and all will become clear.
12/05/13: Half the Man is finally out. This is a CD of 12 of my best rock/pop songs that has been brewing for over two years. If you want to know what Greg does when he's not leading worship, you need to take a listen. You can hear it in a number of ways: 1. Buy the CD right here at my website. Hand-crafted in small batches, they make great Christmas gifts. 2. Buy the MP3s (whole project or individual songs) at CDBaby or iTunes. 3. Listen on Spotify, eMusic, etc.
11/05/13: I'm pleased that the new Presbyterian (USA) hymnal, Glory to God, includes some of my songs and arrangements: #68 Heaven Opened to Isaiah, #501 Feed Us, Lord, #597 Holy, Most Holy Lord/Sanna, Sannanina, #632 People of the Lord, #640 Open Your Mouth and Praise the Lord!, and #832 Here on Jesus Christ I Will Stand/Kwake Yesu Nasimama.
If it's not here, it's just old news...
