It is November 4th 2012 which means it is time to announce the next 'Song of the Week'.
The artist being recognized this week is a little different than those featured before him.
Originally from the small town of Pontypool, Ontario, Kevin Gregory, known as Revoking Grey, started his project in mid 2011.
Why is Kevin's music slightly different than the other artists or bands who have been featured so far you might ask? Kevin is an instrumentalist...and a very talented one I might add.
I met Kevin earlier this year through another musician friend of mine. I ended up booking Revoking Grey back in May of 2012, as well as this past month for Basement Entertainment's monthly acoustic series.
This nineteen year old has certainly blown me away with his talent. On top of that, he made me aware of another style of music I had yet to discover.
Kevin released an EP, titled Acutestic EP, back in August of 2011. Complete with five songs, it is definitely an EP worth picking up at one of his shows. And, the song So Far From Me, off that EP, is this week's 'Song of the Week'.
Meeting him in general and being exposed to this amazing style of music was an honour. But, Kevin recently moved to Waterloo, Ontario to attend university which means he is now very close to Basement Entertainment.
On Kevin's Revoking Grey Facebook page he says, "I'm just a small town kid who loves playing guitar and I'm always looking for gigs." And, with him now in the 519 area, he will certainly be playing some upcoming Basement Entertainment events in the new year.
So, you definitely have to check out Kevin and his instrumental project, Revoking Grey. If you are unfamiliar with the style of music, as I was, prepare to be blown away. His recordings are absolutely beautiful, however, live his music is something you have to witness to believe. He is truly one heck of a talented teenager.
I cannot wait to continue working with Kevin, especially as his career continues to blossom.
If you have yet to see Revoking Grey live you can witness his music on Kevin's Youtube Channel. Infact, he posted a video back in September of 2011 of him playing So Far From Me, this week's 'Song of the Week', which you can check out here:
See you, once again, next Sunday when we announce another 'Song of the Week'. Until then, you will certainly want to check out all the videos Kevin has posted on his Youtube Channel. Also, make sure you check out Revoking Grey live as soon as you can.
