Careening wildly around the alt-country, folk and Americana genres like Johnny Cash on a hot-rodded Vespa, PK Gregory’s music is rooted in tradition, but with a kind of eclecticism and idiosyncratic storytelling bent that is more in line with Warren Zevon's cheerful misanthropy than any old-fashioned sentimentality.
With elements of folk, western swing, honky-tonk, and blues, and taking on a wide range of subjects from religion and sex to the zombie apocalypse, the songs are driven forward by foot drums, swirling fingerpicked guitar/bass, harmonica and an immediately-compelling baritone that calls to mind a young Cash singing Zevon's "Excitable Boy" in some alternative-universe's honkabilly heaven.
Praise for "Honkabilly Blues":
“And yes, it’s beautiful. It’s all damn well played and sung . . . How I would love to see this guy at work!” - www.keysandchords.com
“PK Gregory's One-Man-Honkabilly-Blues-Band proves, without any apparent puritanious attempt to keep the genre alive, the need for this kind of "rare" and exceptional musicians. Enjoy on ‘Honkabilly Blues’ his idiosyncratic storytelling…" - www.rootstime.be
“Uiterst amusant podiumvoer.” - www.writteninmusic.com
Till enmansband som Seasick Steve, Bob Log III och Reverand Beat-Man kan även PK Gregorys namn nu läggas. Liksom de övriga lirar han sina låtar ensam på bastrumma, gitarr, munspel och sång. Honkabilly Blues är dessutom en titel som rätt bra berättar hur det låter. - www.zeromagazine.nu
“The lyrics bloom with wit and bitter irony, such as when he sings cheerfully: ‘My soul is a wasteland of pain and death.’” - www.folker.de
