HOOTIE @ MADISON SQUARE GARDEN

Scratch a big one off the bucket list; got to perform “Hold My Hand” with Hootie and the Blowfish at Madison Square Garden on August 11, the second night of their two-night stand there. Thanks to Darius Rucker, Mark Bryan, Jim Sonefeld, Dean Felber, Gary Greene, Garry Murray, Peter Holsapple, and the whole organization for your incredible generosity in getting your old friend up on stage for a huge thrill.

I’ve been seeing these guys since we started trading shows around the Carolinas in the early 90s; I can say without reservation that they deserve every success they’ve had and will continue to have. They’ve proven yourselves to be one of the classic American bands, with a stack of timeless songs and one of the best singers of our generation.

Above all, They’ve proven yourselves to be great people who show us what it means to come together, step up and deliver. We need more of that in the world these days. ♥️ Thanks to Alex Curran for capturing the moment!

NEW BABY,
EU SOLO DATES


Ruby, Jim and I have a new family member! Welcome to our beautiful daughter, Maia Grace Juliet, 2 months old, born at home at the end of May! My wife has decided not to return her job of 10+ years, and our NYC apartment lease is up at the end of August, so we've decided to take an epic family trip this fall with the kids through the EU and beyond before Jim starts 1st grade next year.  

I'm booking a handful of EU solo dates during our travels. We have already announced a London date – I'll be sharing a bill with my good friend Mick Terry at the Green Note in Camden on August 28! Tickets here. I'll be trying out a traveling version of my looping rig at these EU shows. I've posted a few tunes in this style on IGTV and FB, if you'd like to see what it's all about.

NEW GH SINGLE –– YOU'RE THE ONE FOR ME

My bandmates in GHET have been busier lately – Keith Robinson's awesome hard rock band Tanith is releasing their Metal Blade Records debut on 5/24 and Matt Brandau has been honing his super-funky upcoming solo debut, #makeout – so I've been working on a side-release or two of my own this year. Here's a new single called You're The One For Me, a live-in-the-studio performance that I recorded and videotaped with buds Jason Ewald on drums and Brian Tate on bass. The tune is available on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Google Play, and Tidal, if you dig and would like to add to your playlists. Mastered by Oscar Zambrano at Zampol Productions. Posted the live vid over at FB and YouTube (below.) Enjoy!

Here is a cover I posted over at FB  of “Too Late To Turn Back Now” by Cornelius Brothers & Sister Rose. Went down the wormhole with this timeless classic on my loop rig, after enjoying its inspired use in a scene from Spike Lee's BlacKkKlansman. Songwriter Eddie Cornelius’ own story is incredible.

Greg
