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!

Sword & Cross Records artist: Stephen Anthony Gregory - Me, Myself & I - New release Review

I just received the newest release, Me, Myself and I from Stephen Anthony Gregory. This is certainly not a mainline blues release by any means but of course has blues influences. Opening With Red Light, White Light, Gregory who plays all instruments, plays intricate classically shaped guitar solos over a metal based rhythm. Tapping, bending and shredding are all present but quite tastefully done. On Old Avila, the backing is a little lighter in nature but use of bass the track still has a bit of a metal sound. Gregory weaves the drums, rhythm guitar and bass into a cool underlayment for wailing guitar melodies. Gregoria is a bit lighter yet with arpeggiated chords and solid twin lead guitar solo melodies making for a pleasant instrumental. Wrapping the release is The "Hip Do's" a hard driver with grinding rhythm guitar and high overdrive lead guitar melody. Rapid fire lead guitar work leading into anthem like melodic lines and soaring dives makes this an entertaining diversion from much of what I typically hear.
