Greg Hoy’s ‘Move Along’ is an encouraging message after a tough year
Greg Hoy has grown so much as an artist since I first heard his music. I love this new album. The inspiration is realistic and heartfelt with a unique perspective. As always he approaches his music with humor that isn’t obvious but fitting for the story. His story telling skills helps fans become engaged in his journey, it’s a really important factor when an artist is trying to make their music relatable so it can connect.”
Jacqueline Jax host of AVA Live Radio:
A singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, a recording producer, a recording engineer, something of a marketing guru, a jingle and sound composer and producer, a ‘people engineer’ in the tech world, an art director, and a label owner but when you boil it all down, he’s really just a guy in a band.
“Music is in everything I do. Helping companies hiring people is just like putting a band together. I’ve been fortunate that both sides of my brain work in tandem,” the California-based artist says with a good-natured laugh.
This song is written in the throes of the pandemic, ‘Move Along’ is a mantra to keep going even when life is a drag.
‘Move Along’ was the first song written for the album ‘Cacophony’. We were stuck in quarantine last spring. The Dolly Parton biography was on television. She is one of my idols. She talks about writing ‘one or a few songs every day.’ So that night, my goal was to write a song a day. I did that for a week, and most of them were terrible, but ‘Move Along’ was the piece I wrote that particular night after being inspired by Dolly. It’s about how life unfolds and how we do our best to ride the chaos while we are here.
We are excitedly booking a 3-week midwest tour for the fall to prepare a new EP for release.
