tickets and information

The new Greg Humphreys Electric Trio LP arrives on Spotify and other digital outlets on Friday, October 26. We're hitting the road to play some album release parties!

Haymaker is the best recording yet from Greg Humphreys Electric Trio. Bassist Matt Brandau, and drummer Keith Robinson and I co-wrote and produced the LP together, utilizing all of our talents and challenging each other to create a unique recording.

Many of these tunes started with the rhythm section; undeniable funk n' soul grooves predominate. My lyrics on this group of songs are of a reflective nature, visiting life, death, love, injustice, and suffering. They share hard-won truths and they ask why. This is a special album, and we're happy to share it with you all.

Bring your crew to one of our fall Haymaker tourdates and please get your advance tickets! Expect tunes from the new LP, as well as songs from Lucky Guy and some old faves. We'll also have a limited number of CDs of the new album available at the shows.




Our Greg Humphreys Electric Trio single from Haymaker, "Coming to Get You," has received almost 30,000 streams on Spotify. Listen here, add to your Spotify playlist and please follow GHET at our Spotify artist page to be alerted when the full album Haymaker is available there. Streaming, playlisting, and following helps us reach more people via Spotify’s algorithm.

Single on Spotify now! Bklyn Bowl 5/30

GHET – COMING TO GET YOU – ON SPOTIFY NOW

Our new Greg Humphreys Electric Trio single Coming to Get You is now on Spotify – LISTEN HERE

There aren't many ways left for a band to make money from recorded music, but Spotify pays artists every time a song is streamed – so we’re asking you to please stream Coming to Get You as much as possible.

If you host a Spotify playlist for yourself or others, it's very important to us that you please add Coming to Get You to your list. We’ve learned that the more playlists a song appears on, the more likely Spotify’s curators will add the song to their own playlists and reach millions of people. Please help us reach these new people and make a living from our music.

Following us at our Spotify band page also supports us. We're sharing some playlists of our own there, if you'd like to have a listen.

Coming to Get You came to me during the 2016 presidential election, inspired by the classic soul music-with-a-message of longtime musical heroes like Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield and Stevie Wonder. Our trio developed it on stage and in studio.

It's a warning to those in power who, in defiance of the will of the people, continue to destroy our environment and devastate our working class. For those who say there is no good protest music being made these days, here's a song for you.

Bassist Matt Brandau, drummer Keith Robinson and I recorded the track in my studio space here in NYC. Oscar Zambrano mastered it at Zampol Productions. It's taken a while to dial my rig and recording room in, and now I'm really excited about the sounds we're getting.


We're celebrating the release of Coming to Get You in Brooklyn with a full set at Brooklyn Bowl on Wednesday, May 30. We'll be playing many of the new tunes from our upcoming LP and we hit at 8 PM.

We're supporting the amazing New Orleans pianist, singer and songwriter Jon Cleary. He's collaborated with legends like Dr. John and Allen Toussaint. I've shared the bill with Jon before, and he is absolutely one of the best. One not to miss. Advance tickets here

Love,
Greg
