Album: Middle Of Nowhere
Release Date: September 30, 2017
Genre: Indie/ Folk/ Alternative/ Country
Alberta born Greg Wallace, a musician from Calgary, brings a dirt road, cottage country feel to his music with his newest album entitled Middle Of Nowhere. It’s a nice, easy listening tool when you need to relax and let your mind flow with his stories which can relate to almost every Canadian’s life up north.
A few tracks stuck out in this album that made me almost forget I was driving. I’m going to tell you what I like about them.
“Middle Of Nowhere”, the title track, is a perfect road trip song. The guitar riffs instantly cheer me up. Greg Wallace’s voice is great on this track and I could totally envision this being in a movie!
“Somehow I Know” is another awesome track. The story is all about the relationship blues. It’s at the point where you know what time it is as the other person is making their way out the door, but they don’t want you to know. Greg Wallace shows some serious songwriting skills and delivers amazing instrumentals! Greg shows everybody that northern Canada has some strong folk music and I like the stories that are coming out of true north music.
“On A Train” is a history of 10 years of travel with Greg Wallace’s thoughts, watching a gorgeous woman across from him, on a journey to introduce himself to this lady.
Middle Of Nowhere is a great album with out of this world instrumentals, combined with accomplished mixing and mastering. If you want to enjoy a good listen for a relaxing drive, this is the album to have.
Inspirational Interviewer and Promotional music lover for artists.
Born in Kingston, I grew up with the likes of Dan Akroyd and his blues influence and also The Tragically Hip, plus live shows downtown in the streets and country bands in the pubs.
I love music in all forms and genres. I can adapt my ear to enjoy and appreciate all instrumentals and vocals. I started writing about certain artists that I grew up listening to and then I reached out to artists for interviews. I have done over 20 interviews with artists and CEOs of industry companies from all over the world.
Now, with Canadian Beats I have an opportunity to improve my journalistic abilities and to get the word out there for artists, and best of all to go to shows and get that personal feeling. I get to represent Canadian music on a higher level. We need to open more doors and have more shows and venues, as well as get the world to come to us. That is my goal.
