Songs from the Shallow Waters
' Behind the stars... i will show you my scars ' Formerly singer and lead guitarist of Sorrow Town Choir, an underground band based in San Francisco, and the true front man of Midnight Riders, the animated southern rock zombie band in the multi-million selling video game Left For Dead II, Greg has drawn from a deeper source for these songs. They were written in the pale light of early morning, bent over his acoustic guitar with freight trains rumbling outside the windows of his reclaimed warehouse, a sanctuary in the middle of industry. A newly found focus finds him writing the best songs of his career. Greg Dale is clear eyed and strong, singing out the long night's end. ' Don't take much to make me want what I don't have and I don't have much need for the things that I do... ' Songs From the Shallow Waters is recorded in spare and intimate style-- voice and guitar captured in performance, building to more dense, eclectic orchestrations enriched by talented local musicians on piano, guitars, and percussion. The song 'see how she glows' stands out as a potential single, while 'ottawa hills' with it's haunting pedal steel will appeal to broader New Folk and Alt-Country audiences. Greg has been writing and playing for the past twenty years, opening for acts as diverse as Rocco de Luca and Dale Watson. This will become the album you turn to at the end of your own long night, when you are alone and wondering what the new day will bring. His songs will reach you, if you let them in.
