Songs of Heart & Home
Greg Blake’s debut solo album, Songs of Heart & Home, was released in September, 2015, where he was joined by some of the greatest bluegrass musicians of today. On songs like "Dreaming of a Little Cabin" or "Turn Your Heart Toward Home", you can hear the gentle guidance of a pastor and a devout family man reflecting on the good path. While bluegrass gospel may be one of Greg's signature talents, he's certainly not averse to a little rough-and-tumble country singing, and his new album features a blazing bluegrass version of Johnny Cash's "Hey Porter" that shows off Blake's razor-sharp and lightning-fast guitar picking abilities. Drawing from a wide variety of song sources, from Cash to 80s country (Joe Diffy), to Canadian folk (Ian Tyson), to the original source himself, Big Mon, Greg Blake has a far ranging set of influences but a powerful Appalachian base to his music that resets these vocal gems in new ways.
