As well as being an independent singer, songwriter and professional musician in his own right, GB also forms one half of 'The Paragons Of Goodness' with long-time friend & collaborator Nathan Wacey of Long Track Studios and works as a songwriter and vocalist with and for DJ Vadim, Nightmares On Wax, Rae & Christian, Utah Saints, Featurecast, Mr Bird, Smoove & Turrell, Suonho and others.
Here's some kind words folks have had to say about GB's 2010 debut album 'The Price Of Love':
"The Price Of Love is an addictive, homespun groove that sounds like the lovechild of Marvin Gaye & Timmy Thomas delivered by one of soul music's true undiscovered talents"
- Soultracks.com (songs of the year 2010)
"I tell you something: I'm likin' that! Mellow to the max!"
- Craig Charles (from the broadcast of my song 'Tell You something' on the BBC Radio 6 Craig Charles Funk & Soul Show)
"I recommend you seek out this impressive debut - a veritable future classic not to be overlooked."
- DJ Marcia 'LadyBugz' Carr (from the review in Soul survivors magazine)
"Times are hard, contracts nigh on impossible to get unless you're willing to be shoved in the corporate sausage machine, and funds scarcer than ever before. Yet artists like these will always be wanted as they are timeless and as such need to be hailed today, right now and not 2 decades down the line when some DJ falls over a cheap copy somewhere."
- (from the review by The Vibe Scribe on the Soulchoonz blog)
"...one of the best new soul singers on the planet, and I've heard loads"
- (tweated by DJ Vadim during one of our recording sessions)
"The Price Of Love is a deeply original collection of tracks that'll be revered in years to come. Come on soul people: let's show our support to one of the most original new voices on the scene and get over to iTunes and purchase. Pure soulful quality!"
- Paul Cutting (from the review on the SoulCuts blog)
"Greg is one of the best UK soul vocalists around, supreme talent in abundance!"
- Mark Rae (being kind enough to give me some PR blurb I can use, god bless him)
The Price Of Love was written, performed and produced by yours truly, and was engineered and co-produced by Nathan Wacey of Long Track Studios, 'The Price Of Love' is available on CD, iTunes, Amazon MP3 and Spotify via Long Track Recordings.
