Do You Love Great Music?  I do too.  That's why I'm asking you to get the Green Sky CD.     Here is your opportunity to be part of this CD.  Some of the songs have already been recognized with awards.  What can you do?  Chip in now.  Get this CD.

You can donate $18, $25, $35, $50 or more and help get the word out, help make a change.

LISTEN

Your help is needed NOW for the GREEN SKY CD.  We are on the road helping people go Green in their home and business.  We are doing workshops on building Electric Car chargers.  We are Zero Emission Musicians.
Everyone doing a little bit can make a huge change.

There are 14 songs which all express deep felt, root emotions.

"Green Sky" is about being trapped in a Huricane Matthew like storm.  Can you imagine how insane and impossible that would be to survive?

"30 Minuites to Go" is based on a ture story of a father / daughter who are faced with super unusual mortal choices.

"Won't Believe this Love" a feel good relationship song with a twist.

Chip in now and be part of this CD!  Wouldn't you like to see your name printed in the CD jacket?  Well you can - just donate $10, $20, $50 or $100!

Check out the song "This Road" below.
I have been in and around music all my life.  My mother always encouraged me to write and play my own music.  She was very supportive, but unfortunately she died before I could complete this Green Sky CD.  But I wrote a song for the CD call "This Road", very personal for anyone who has lost a loved one.  The video was put together for her memorial service.

We have done so much on our own but we need your help now to finish.

Here is a song on the CD called "Cassual Affairs" Time slips away so quickly.  I have always supported myself by being a studio engineer and music producer.  Working hard on other artist's music is rewarding but very time consuming and I have never had enough time or money to finish my own projects.

I'd like to have the chance to produce this Green Sky CD.  I'd like to see a copy get into your hands.  

Here is what they said about my previous Exit 21 CD .

“His hit song "Desperation" fuses sporadic assaults on civilization with a dewy love narrative.” - sophia maines - Art Voice

“Rick Denzien could be one of the best of the modern-day writers -- yet he does it utilizing the driving beat of rock music -- and makes it work like a charm!” -   Les Reynolds Indie-Music.com “The overall tone of the disc is very warm and inviting. The songs build and draw you in; the hooks captivate; the vocal harmonies reflect the thoughtful nature of the lyrics” - Good Times - Press & Sun-Bulletin – Binghamton NY 

"On this CD, the singer/author/songwriter/poet reminds me of Canada's great musical and poetic genius BRUCE COCKBURN... The album was better than I imagined. It became more impressive the more I listened to it... Intelligent, thoughtful lyrics with solid music by Denzien make 'EXIT 21' an album worth checking out."  - Armando Canales - The Critical Review

Green Sky CD has a strong message for the times right now.     We are dedicated to helping people get environmentally aligned with the goal of harmful emission elimination.   That is why we started Zero Emission Musicians and that is why we are doing ride and drives with our electric car.   So far I have given over 4,200 people rides in our 100% Zero Emission vehicle.  I want to make the CD available to those people too.

Here is what they said about Radiate:

"Rick Denzien radiates... in a sea of uncertainty... I’m impressed and emotionally stirred, without being exhausted or pushed to the point of tension. It is a great song driven by the lead guitar... a compelling flow of sonic movement that keeps the track fresh even after consecutive listens." -  Tyler Stansfield Jaggers
Mission and Challenges
My mission is to get the music out everywhere.  There are many steps that need to be taken in order for this to become a reality.    I understand that production of music, like life, must be approached in a sustainable way.  So the songs have been written in a peaceful environment, where the power for lighting comes from the wind and solar.  The songs are being recorded in a studio which is Zero emission.  They heat electric wind power instead of methane which is a known Ozone distroyer and global warming gas.

Reach out with a message that helps contribute to real lasting change - Sustainability for each person
Be on the Zero Emission Musician Music Tour - helping fight the fossil fuel addiction
Record & Mix the songs on the Green Sky CD using the Zero Carbon or Methane studio - Bah-Fo Studio
Master the recordings
Commercially replicate the Green Sky CD
Deliver the goods to our supporting fans
Head out on a Zero Emission Green Sky Tour - using Zero Emission Vehicles
Support the Green Sky CD by releasing it to radio professionals, Program Directors, Music Directors, DJs etc
Risk - some giant fossil fuel company tries to buy my silence or worse.  Right now conditions are good to get on the road with 100% Electric vehicles - most charge stations are free - this totally reduces the tour expenses.   But that could change.  Already fossil fuel companies are trying to kill solar power and electric cars.... they will not succeed, but we need to reach a critical mass quickly to have max effect.
