WHAT FOLKS HAVE SAID ABOUT GREGG LAWLESS….
“Love the voice, love the lyrics … a great talent.”
“Lawless skips between musical flavours ranging from blues to pop to folk music, breaking up his hooky tunes with tales of his travels to Ireland and South Africa.”
“Mixing pop, country, folk and rock into tight, catchy arrangements is something he does with confident ease … an ace songwriter.”
“Complex, thoughtful songs that defy categorization … jaunty pop edges, arranged, melodic guitar parts and Beatlesesque vocal treatments that jut defiantly outside official folk parameters.”
“Exceptional songwriting skills… a more than generous helping of melodious, hook-laden compositions… one hell of an album.”
