Face the Music: San Francisco, 1975. Woody, an artistically brilliant, socially inept street musician, is just getting by. Inspired by Stephanie, the love of his life, he writes an amazing song that could launch his musical career. Then an unexpected betrayal leaves him fighting for his relationship and his future.
Hopelessly disorganized, armed with only his guitar and unique sense of humor, Woody tries to persevere against the inequities of the music business. Passion, desperation and intense idealism propel him head-on into the challenges of surviving as an uncompromising artist.
Face the Music is a story of love, self-discovery, and the spiritual power of music. Read Paul Liberatore’s review in the Marin IJ.
‘Face the Music’ is captivating, with powerful passages that are valuable contributions to the akashic records of American Literature. Generally, words are inadequate to express emotions conveyed by music; but this book flows like a moody, mystical, musical composition.”
– Barry “The Fish” Melton (of Country Joe and the Fish), musician and defense attorney.
Face the Music is a story about a love song called ‘Stephanie’. Greg recently recorded ‘Stephanie’ with some of his friends; available here for listening and on iTunes in December.
