“.A.M.E. award for Jazz song of the year and Jazz artist of the Year! I submitted "Roll The Dice" a couple of months ago.. and I'm actually nominated!!”


“I Just Want To Dance starts out with fiery horns; Greig’s inimitable vocals kick in shortly after. The track is able to take parts of the fifties, eighties, nineties, and today; Greig has frenetic energy through all three minutes of this cut; hints of the New Jack Swing era of R’n’B and the swinging lounge sounds of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin represent major influences to Greig on I Just Want To Dance. The dynamic that is created through the interaction of the aforementioned horns, percussion, bass, and vocals makes for a track that will stick with listeners long after the track ceases. The production of I Just Want To Dance is absolutely stellar, allowing the arrangement to seem neat and tidy while having tremendous amounts of emotional appeal. I Just Want To Dance continues to gain speed through its second half; as the horns and the remainder of the instrumentation continues to gain steam, Greig’s vocals are provided a proper palette upon which to shine.”

“Halton Hills crooner Monty Greig is celebrating his second CD release, titled I’m Gonna Live Til I Die. “This CD has taken me a couple of years to get together, but I’m sure those who have been to my live shows, will love it,” Greig said. The album is a mix of standard favorites, as well as a couple of original compositions as well. Greig will been hosting release parties on tonight (June 28), 9 p.m. at The Stuffed Olive on Guelph St. at Rexway Dr. in Georgetown, on Friday, June 30 at The Cranberry Resort in Collingwood and on Saturday, July 7, 8 p.m. at Tanners Pub and Grill on Eastern Ave. in Acton. ”
