Duane Eby

Duane Eby Duane Eby – I have been playing in the Fort Wayne, Indiana area and surrounding region venues and festivals for the last 25 years. It has been my pleasure to play with many talented people in bands that have performed a wide variety of music. (I was also the primary writer in the instrumental acoustic quartet “Point of Departure” which has to this date released four CDs, the latter “Gypsy Heart” is available through cdbaby also.) As a part of all these entities I have had the good fortune to be an opener for acts as diverse as Merle Saunders, Bill Miller, Guggenheim Grotto and Kaki King. During all those years I have steadily compiled and performed my own catalogue of original songs. “It’s what’s inside that counts…” is the synthesis of 25 years of songwriting, many musical experiences, a wonderful collection of fine musical talent who gave unconditionally, excellent recording engineering, and incidents which can only be described as being arranged by a higher source of inspiration. While they contain primarily an acoustic guitar or piano as a central instrument, the recordings contain a wide variety of instrumentation including upright bass, cello, flute and oboe as well as marimba, steel drums, hand percussion and, of course, electric guitars. These 20 songs also reflect an exposure to many musical categories (rock, pop, reggae, etc.) but seem, at least for me, to defy narrowing style descriptions as individual pieces. Maybe that’s a good thing. While the lyric content does not deny that the world can be a dark place the ultimate feeling generated is spiritual and positive. Hope you find something here you like. My work continues to evolve as I am currently investigating world rhythms.

It’s What’s Inside that Counts



It’s what’s inside that counts… is a collection of my songs that contain performances by my friends in an effort to preserve some of a past large quantity of songs in some form to prevent them from being lost. Thanks to the generosity of friends, I had the privilege of producing the arrangements any way I felt would be interesting, with no thought of reproducing them live…although that is what I am currently doing with a small quartet. This collection is an acoustic guitar and piano-spined synthesis of rock, pop, reggae and other kinds of music with a positive message. Each song is different. There are only 10 songs listed on the outside cover, but there are 20 songs on the disc.
