Electronic Press Kit
Greg in Good Company, once described fondly by a fan as "Dave Matthews Band with balls," is hard to squeeze into genre box, but their blend of folk, funk, pop and rock is earning them praise from listeners and blogs that give their unique take on alt rock a chance. The Los Angeles-based band has been performing in southern California since being founded in 2015 by singer/songwriter/guitarist Greg Gilman, and began to build an online presence after the early 2016 release of their debut, self-titled EP. Singles included "Save Me" and "2 AM," and the band followed up the 5-track record with single "Monster's Lair," which caught the attention of LA radio station 88.5 KCSN in 2017. The band's music has also received airplay on Laguna Beach's KX 93.5 and even across the country on WXRY 99.3.
Other members of the band include pianist/vocalist Lee, lead guitarist Marty Vites, bassist Alex U'Ren and drummer Alexa Brinkschulte. Currently, they're working on new music for 2017, with a plan to release a new song every month until compiling all the tracks in the spring on their second EP.
Donald Trump's Inauguration Day marked the first new release of 2017: "American Way." The new single and title track of the upcoming EP is the band's grittiest tune yet, with screeching distortion and roaring vocals complimenting passionate lyrics reflecting on some of the biggest injustices that, sadly, still plague this country.
Greg in Good Company's music - a combination of upbeat catchy melodies, funky bass riffs, soulful vocal harmonies and thoughtful lyrics - is often compared to Mumford and Sons, The Lumineers and Weezer, while also reminding listeners of the classic rock that ruled the airwaves decades ago. Despite comparisons or personal musical influences, the band doesn't strive to sound like anyone or anything else other than Greg in Good Company.
"While a rock band at heart, they’re also funky with touches of folk, country, and ska, wrapped up with that pop appeal bow. Their debut EP is a well-rounded selection of songs that each stand out on their own. Greg’s lyrics are honest, funny, and insightful." - JaxxShack music blog
"His band’s name, Greg in Good Company, seems to be fitting. Gilman certainly has surrounded himself with a tight group of talented musicians who, simply put, make good music. The band’s self-titled EP reflects that... All in all, Gilman and his band have put together a catchy, enjoyable listen that will become a quick favorite for most rock fans." - Lehigh Valley Underground music blog
"Indulge in the uplifting vibes of a Los Angeles gem that will awaken the days when acoustic funk and rasping soulful voices rang from every street corner.
