“Rock at Live Wood showcases Humphreys and his band in concert... Songs such as “More Than a Friend” and “Sayin’ What You Mean” demonstrate a decided preference for affecting melodies that find a perfect balance with the band’s ability to show off their ample chops.”
"On the whole, Humphreys couples his old school Americana with an affable attitude...Humphreys remains blissfully unencumbered, his blithe and breezy melodies sustaining a willowy caress throughout...Bohemia seems to live up to its title, given its nonchalant attitude and unassuming demeanor. It’s a sensual sound, a momentary retreat to a place in the pines."
“Cosmic Irony spotlights Humphreys and company in a studio setting, focusing on concise songs that emphasize his jazzier inclinations and penchant for brisk, breezy melodies. The title track, with its commentary on God’s master plan, emulates a soft samba, all tropical rhythms that add a light-hearted attitude which effectively undermines the weightier aspects of the nuanced narrative. “All Because of You” leans more towards overt pop, further affirming Humphreys’ prolific prowess and inherent charms.”
“People You May Know flows with seemingly effortless silkiness... early sides from Bill Withers and Joni Mitchell come to mind as Humphreys ushers us into his folds with a sure hand... There’s no doubting how personal these pieces are to their creator, but Humphreys has the rare gift of transmuting what he sees in the mirror into something the rest of us can hum along to.”
"Humphreys' contributions have been manifold. He's invented and reinvented himself at least three times, going from the enlightened college rocker of Dillon Fence to the blue-eyed soul man of HOBEX to, most recently, a folk-leaning solo artist."
“People You May Know may be the best set of late night standards released this year. Except for the fact that these songs aren't standards at all, but rather some very supple originals. People You May Know is like the return embrace from a long-lost lover, one who's calm and comforting, and yet sensuous and seductive.”
“Few Triangle musicians are as ubiquitous and as widely respected as Greg Humphreys…sounds brimming with confidence on his new disc, People You May Know, a late-night-lounge-styled folk-jazz affair spotlighting his tasteful playing and the high sweetness of his voice.”
