Greg or Gray

So my dad showed me music. He was a great musician, trumpet player, writer and arranger. I used to watch and listen to him for hours. My grandma gave me Elvis, being a child of the 70's gave me Kiss, a garage sale gave me the Beatles, and my best friend gave me the Turtles.....I was a hooked mess. My first performance was "My Ding O Ling" for my aunt when I was 6. My first guitar I "borrowed" and my first real job was playing polkas. I luckily grew up in a place where I was a big fish in a small pond and was able to record 2 records before I was 16. Moving on ...I did a lot of amazing things . I won a bunch of song writing contests, played with a few famous bands and built a couple of studios. I write songs like the ones I love listening too. The Beatles, The Turtles, ELO and Tom Petty (although I love heavy metal, I never really could write it.) So... I'm still a starving artist... but I think at age :),
I 'm finally proud of my music. The new CD "Gray" is what I hoped I would be able to do when I was a young buck. I hope you listen, I hope you like and I hope I can quit my day job....someday.

Thanks to the drummers on "Gray"

Paul Krywy, a great friend, a great person and maybe the best drummer I've had the pleasure of playing with.
Paul plays with The George Brothers and can be seen all over town.

Drew Weber, a great drummer that let me record this CD at his house, we had fun and asked the important question
" how's it gonna end "
Drew plays with Masquerade and can be seen all over town.

Tom Rice, Well... The most bestist bud anyone could ever ask for. Amazing drummer, amazing recording engineer, amazing songwriter,
and mostly, an amazing friend and person. I could of never finished this CD without Tom. Oh yeah, he helped mix and master the CD...thanks so much .
Tom owns and operates the "Audio Cafe " recording studio in East point, MI.
