Gregory-Abbott-rehearsal-break

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 🙂

I found this great story about a new use for the library. I wish more folks could come up with ideas like this. It would make peoples work day much more satisfying. (click the photo or the link).



Here is one of the Radio Station promo’s for the upcoming tour in the fall.


Speaking of music- for those of you who live in New York City; here’s something interesting-

This summer 50 pianos are being planted around the area. Check out the link for more information or search #singforhope. And if any of you go and visit one; drop me a post and let me know! Here’s the link.  You can also click the photo.
