Solo Discography



Toymakers' Dream explodes to life on stage complete with a laser light show, pyrotechnical effects, dramatic choreography and costuming, dance, pantomime and acrobatics. Performed around the globe, this allegory of a Toymaker and his son has captivated young and old in its world of dreams, romance, rebellion, and rescue. This live stage presentation, with its detailed original soundtrack featuring artists Matthew Ward, Greg Volz, Kelly Willard, Farrell & Farrell, Sherman Andrus and Jeff Rindt, was filmed before live audiences, and currently is touring across the USA and abroad. Come be a part of a fantasy full of colorful toys, energetic Kats, a wicked Dream-Hater, and, of course, the tender, lovable Toymaker and everyone's hero, his son.
And remember... "It's just a dream until you believe."

The soundtrack has two songs that feature Greg X. Volz. The first song is a duet with Matthew Ward and is titled The Betrayal. A different recording of this song appeared later on the soundtrack CD of the Toymaker's Dream by Mike Demus. The second song is towards the end of the stage performance and features all kinds of different artists, probably including Greg X. Volz. This song is titled The Conqueror. The credits for the soundtrack cassette don't mention Volz' contribution to The Conqueror.
