Three Church Hill
Heavily influenced by the British Invasion and American folk, roots, and pop music of the time, John Greenaway began a musical journey that continues today. After playing the oboe for two years, John picked up the guitar at age 13 and hasn't put it down since. Playing in a various local bands over the next few years, he became the guitarist for a large New Jersey chapter of 'Up With People'. Touring the tri-state area with the group allowed John to experience playing for large crowds and developing stage presence. During this period, John met current songwriting partner Garry Herzog. Together they have collaborated on over 100 songs to date. Embarking on a musical career in the 1970's, John was involved with a number of original musical projects and performing bands, most notably Kinderhook Creek, arguably the most popular New Jersey band to date in the tri-state area. Due to it's great following, the band was continuously invited to perform with such famous acts as Poco, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Roger McGuinn (Birds), Outlaws, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and Pure Prairie League, to name a few. After a ten-year hiatus (raising kids, etc.), John returned to the musical field in the early 1990's and started Mimosa Music, a musical services company encompassing audio productions, instruction and performance. John has done a number of recorded compositions for AT&T corporate videos, and was contracted by the Martin Guitar Company to teach guitar to it's employees as the in-house instructor. Currently John is continuing in the audio production field, writing scores for nationally broadcasted TV shows. He handles the majority of the instrumentation and recording himself. Additionally, John instructs guitar at the Eastern Conservatory of Music and Arts in Oldwick, NJ, as well as in his own Mt. Pleasant Guitar Studio in Mt. Pleasant, PA. John has just completed his first major solo album, 'Three Church Hill'. John continues to perform publicly.
