I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Six O'clock Shuffle - Gregg Giarelis

Gregg Giarelis is a singer / songwriter and guitarplayer born in Athens, Greece. Early recordings of Chicago bluesmen heard around the house and a deep fascination towards the guitars hanging in the living room was what triggered Gregg's interest in guitar playing and led to a further involvement with blues. Over the years he intensified his relationship with the guitar and singing. His playing was influenced by great blues artists such as Otis Rush, Albert king, Albert Collins, Ronnie Earl, Colin James and Buddy Wittington. Gregg's been performing frequently since 2004 as a solo artist or in the context of blues bands and has shared the stage with great blues artists like Lucky Peterson and Michael Dotson. "The boy can play the blues..." Such were Benny Turner's words to the audience after the 10 minute long jam that took place at the "Saloon" blues club in New Orleans, during Gregg's recent trip to the United States. Gregg has just finished recording his first solo album entitled "Five years of trouble". It consists of 5 original compositions, four songs and one instrumental track. These songs were written during the fall of 2011 and were recorded by the end of that year. A lot of attention to detail has been paid in the album process, being recorded at top notch studios and mastered in Memphis Tenessee.
