Greg Scheer's Discography

Half the Man (2013)

While better known for his church music, Greg has been making rock and roll for years. Half the Man represents two decades of songwriting and two years of recording. There are three ways to get this music into your ear: 1. Buy the CD right here at my website. 2. Buy the MP3s (whole project or individual songs) at CDBaby or iTunes. 3. Listen on Spotify, eMusic, or your favorite music streaming service.

 

Cry Out to God! (2011)

22 tracks of unmitigated psalmic bliss. Sung by The Choral Scholars with Norma Malefyt on piano and organ. Greg directed, arranged, sang, recorded and contributed the songs "People of the Lord (Psalm 78) and "As the Deer Pants for the Water" (Psalm 42).

The CD is available at iTunes (download only).

Global Songs for Worship (2010)

28 songs taken from the Global Songs for Worship collection that I edited, including a number that I translated and arranged: Shukuru, Yesu/Thank You, Jesus (Sudan), Abana in Heaven (Lebanon), We Are Coming, Lord, to the Table (Sierra Leone), The Lord Is Ruler Over All (Ghana), Holy Gift of Love (Mongolia), Holy, Holy, You Are Holy (Rwanda), Kwake Yesu Nasimama/Here on Jesus Christ I Will Stand (Kenya). The Choral Scholars sing, Norma Malefyt plays piano/organ, and I fill out the arrangements with guitars, percussion, etc.

You can buy the CD from FaithAlive or Adoro Music.

The Greg Scheer Songbook (1999)

Ten of my early praise songs. Though I was new to worship music when I wrote and recorded these, they've held up well over the years, with six of the ten going on to be published in hymnals or as anthems. As one person described it, the songs are "singable and accessible, while being delightfully interesting." You can download it from CDBaby or purchase the CD directly from me for $10.

From the Hand of... (1993)

The best songs from Greg's singer/songwriter days. Acoustic folk songs with a twist of jazz, performed on guitar, string bass, and violin (courtesy of Elizabeth Way). Songs of love, doubt and depression with enough musical rigor to keep them from getting mopey.

 

Live and Thinking (1988)

Recorded live into a mostly empty auditorium one evening at Camp-of-the-Woods, this is Greg performing solo, accompanying himself on piano, guitar and bass. It's a good snapshot of his early music, with energy and angst to spare.

Meatloaf for the Masses (1985) The Amphibians

Greg's college band, The Amphibians, were a short-lived flame of new wave fury. They formed in the fall, warmed up for Larry Norman in the winter, recorded a cassette in the spring, and disbanded by summer.
