Following a string of acoustic solo albums, longtime Dillon Fence and Hobex frontman Greg Humphreys returns to the bandstand. Humphreys' new Electric Trio features bassist Matt Brandau and drummer Keith Robinson. The Brooklyn-via-NC artist says "it feels great to be playing electric guitar again. I'm using all the tools in the shed with this combo." Following a summer recording session with Stax soul legend William Bell, Humphreys reconvenes the Electric Trio for an East Coast tour supporting two new releases – the Cosmic Irony EP and the Rock at Live Wood LP.
"Greg Humphreys is a perennial pleasure, an ever-blooming example of what dedication to one’s art and a fierce resistance to abandoning exposed heart and simple, sincere emotion can produce." – Dennis Cook, Dirty Impound
"Humphreys' craftsmanship and effortlessly endearing voice are still striking." – Chris Parker, INDYweek
It's about leaving, and arriving. You could consider it a love letter (or goodbye note) to my home state of North Carolina. You could also consider this LP a musical warm-up, setting the stage for new adventures in New York City and beyond.
