…… i was raised

Gregory Abbott (Shake You Down) with Dorothy Moore (Misty Blue)

My talented friend Dorothy Moore (of “Misty Blue” fame) will be gracing us all with a wonderful new release due out in a few months. We are all excited about it and I had the pleasure of writing a song for her to be included in the collection. This woman can really “saaang”. When we toured together, she brought the house down every night. Be on the lookout.

I was raised. I didn’t just grow up. I was taught to speak when I enter a room, say please and thank you, to have respect for my elders and let the elder in the room have my chair, say ‘yes sir’ and ‘no sir’, lend a helping hand to those in need, hold the door for the person behind me, say “excuse me’ when it’s needed and to love people for who they are and not for what I can get from them. I was also taught to treat people the way I want to be treated.

How about you?

Happy fall…

I hope you enjoy the upcoming holidays with family and friends. Remember that we are all people and (if you can) take the time to lend a hand… do a kind deed… help a friend or a stranger. For us here in “Abbott ville” the holidays represent gratitude… I am grateful for my life… my friends… my family and you.

“Treat each other how you would like to be treated”… That’s is how my parents raised me.

A simple kind word can often mean a lot….

Be well y’all

Musically yours, Gregory

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:

7abb1774-c3d9-41de-86b7-fbca63371569

 

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
