Only 5 songs on this EP by Gavin Gregory. All five tracks have hit potential. No fillers on this EP. $$$... On Ya Finger is the opener and you can hear the soulful voice that Gavin has. $$$... On Ya Finger is not about bling bling as the title may suggest, but about a symbol of committment in a relationship. BabySista is about domestical abuse. Great song, with a message. Gavin also sings a good love song Over And Over (Again) is sure to put you in a right mood. All songs have been written and composed by Gavin together with Chuckey Charles except for BabySista which was written by Gavin and Don Dodds. Gavin does all vocals on this EP. If you listen to the songs you would think there were other backing vocals, but Gavin's vocal range is very wide. From very high to dark low.
