June Dates with Sonny Landreth

My legs are covered in chigger bites, so it must be summer! Drummer Keith Robinson, Bassist Matt Brandau and I are opening for Louisiana guitar slinger Sonny Landreth this month in DE, NY, VA, and MD. Sonny is a fantastic slide guitar player with a singular style. List of dates below. 

We're playing our own show in our neck of the woods on Saturday, June 13 at Red Hook's Hometown Bar-B-Que — two sets from 7:30 to 10:30.

North Cack folks, plan on our August 1 set in Raleigh at the Lincoln Theatre opening for legendary Soul visionary Shuggie Otis! His supremely awesome LP Inspiration Information might be the all-time most-played record in the Hobex van over the many years we toured.

We've been working on the new Greg Humphreys Electric Trio LP and it's sounding delicious. We cut the basic tracks in April at Overdub Lane with the amazing John Plymale; we've been working on guitars and vocals over at Keith's Cobble Hill studio these past few weeks. More soon on this impending slab of hot wax!


Scott Carle, Kent Alphin, Chris Goode and I are excited to be a part of Be Loud ’15 on the weekend of August 28 and 29 at Cat’s Cradle in Carrboro. We'll be playing on Saturday the 29th, along with local supergroup Preeesh! and The Veldt. Friday night will feature Southern Culture on the Skids, John Howie Jr. & The Rosewood Bluff. There's a family-friendly Saturday afternoon event in the works as well.

More details to come, but weekend passes are now available here through the Be Loud Sophie site for $40. These passes will cover both evening shows and the Saturday matinee — a full weekend of my all-time favorite North Carolina bands (and friends). It's an incredible deal for a great cause. Buy your passes early — this weekend is likely to sell out.

More soon,

COSMIC IRONY  iTunes  Amazon  Spotify
Cosmic Irony is a studio collaboration between producer / bassist Matt Brandau and me. We've been recording together on-and-off at his Upper West Side studio Chateau Brandau since I've been living in the city. These are our funky creations.

The first tune, "Crosstown", is a song we built around a Brandau bassline, with horns from Memphis saxophonist Art Edmaiston (Lucero, Gregg Allman Band, JJ Grey and MOFRO) and trumpeter Dennis Marion (JJ Grey and MOFRO). On "Cosmic Irony" we take a Latin trip down Existential Lane. "All Because of You" is pure pop and "More Than a Friend" is a downtown love song. Enjoy.

Rock at Live Wood is the debut live recording of Greg Humphreys Electric Trio – bassist Matt Brandau, drummer Keith Robinson, and myself.

The Rock at Live Wood  LP, from an Electric Trio set at Rockwood Music Hall, is alternately thoughtful and blistering. Mixed by Keith Robinson, it features live arrangements of songs from the Cosmic Irony EP along with some trio versions of tunes from my solo acoustic LPs and HOBEX recordings.
