Hey now! Some positive news in this season of doom ( I refer, of course to Halloween),,and some free music too! Starting today at 5pm, I’ll be featured on WEMF Radio, where I’ll be performing a few songs and chatting with DJ DAve Crespo, in advance of my show next week at The Tavern At The End of The World~https://www.facebook.com/events/163633634090354/.
Also this week, I’m playing another lunchtime show at The Burren this Friday at 1PM.
Very excited to be playing both shows with bassist extraordinaire Joe Klompus~fresh from playing a few West Coast shows with Letters To Cleo~look for them in Boston in a few weeks! Until then stay warm–get out the coats and the votes!
Saved by the press! Well, not really, but just in time for my solo CD release show at Stubblebine Lutherie this Sat 2/6, my CD ‘Chasing Dreams’ got a glowing review in The Noise! check it out here:
The acoustic folk/ rock sound on this release is unique, interesting, and very good. Check out the artists and their instruments in the credits: Greg Allison – acoustic guitar/baritone uke, Greg Hawkes (The Cars/ The Greg Hawkes Ukulele Trio) – uke, Zachariah Hickman – bass/euphonium, Lawrence Scudder – viola, Craig Robertson – harmonies and Tim Mann on all other instruments and vocals. Mann also plays the ukulele with Hawkes in Greg’s own string uke trio. Very interesting reading on the cover. Even more interesting listening to the disc. Mann wrote all the ballads and there are lush harmonies all over the place. Listen to “In My Arms,” “Days Go By,” and “The Maybe Song” to hear the angels sing. I also like the more rocking “You Can’t Go Home Again,” the mellow “Longing” with the soulful viola, and the cool uke/viola playing on “Another Moment.” Sorta like the youthful optimism of John Denver meets the storytelling soul and delivery of Donovan. Great stuff. Check it out.(A.J. Wachtel)
And below is the show info..hope to see you there!
Ok, the air is getting chilly but we soon get to chill with loved ones as the holidays approach! May they be loved indeed..here is a great way to pre chill the day before the madness..why travel when you can sit and listen? and drink?
Never too early to be grateful..giving thanks for the warm weather in November, as well as the thriving music climate year ’round..lots of very cool shows just around the corner, including the return of Ukuele Noir. Tomorrow (11/9) I will be at The Cantab in Central Square to play a few songs from ‘Chasing Dreams’ before the feature act at 9:30…stay tuned for news about Nov/Dec shows and a release party announcement for 2016!
