……summer highs

Hey all. Just checking in to see how your summer is going. I just read an article that says 2015 is a record warm weather year. I guess this means that the weather is going to get pretty crazy over the next little while……

I will be in the August 15th issue of Entrigue Magazine so please keep a lookout for it.


On an amusing note “Shake You Down” was recently featured on the hit Canadian TV comedy series “Mr. D”.  Mr. D is an awkward, but lovable teacher in the show. In one scene he’s trying to “get the girl”. When “SYD” comes on the jukebox he uses it to serenade her…. but unfortunately it doesn’t work. (and here I was thinking all this time that “SYD” was a slam dunk!!  SMH 😘 ).

The “David Gest “Time of My Life” United Kingdom tour is coming up in September. I’m looking forward to working with some of the other acts on the show, and meeting some of my UK fans and friends.

You can check my “What’s New”  link for the  dates in the cities near you. PLEASE NOTE: I am only able to do the first week of what has now become a two week tour. So, if you’d like to see me, please keep that in mind. Thanks.

I was sitting on the dock at my marina the other day watching the sun set as sailboats peacefully drifted by. It reminded me of a wonderful article I read about the importance of beauty which I thought I’d share with you. Not personal beauty, but the beauty of what surrounds us.


If you haven’t heard my new single; Bob Marley’s “Stir It Up” or picked up a copy yet, Here’s a link.

Please like, share, buy and tell your friends. We’re trying to get this one some radio airplay so every little bit helps! Thank you.

That’s it for now.Talk to you soon.

Here’s my quote for this post:

You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection.

BUDDHA


Musically yours,

Gregory

I’ve been really focused in the studio these days and many songs are getting to the finished stage.

 

 

 

 

Now that I’m coming up for air – I’m releasing a new single. Its my version of the Bob Marley song “Stir It Up”.  I really enjoyed producing the track. It feels like a warm weather song to me.

 

You’re the first to hear it; so if you like it- please thumbs up, share, spread the word and all that stuff :)
