“When It Gets That Bad”, Greg Pope’s new single is Oh so good – one of those timeless classics that remind one of The Eagles or Matchbox 20.
Excelling at piano at the age of 8, and guitar at 11, Greg Pope’s drive to understand and master a variety of music – from rock to pop to country – help to shape his unique voice and sound. Ultimately, it was country music that won him, driving him to focus on his songwriting and make the move to Nashville.
Writing with names like Dierks Bentley, Don Pfrimmer and Kyle Cook of Matchbox Twenty, Greg’s skills grew and his resolve intensified. Taking inspiration from country artists like George Strait and Kenny Chesney as well as rock legends like U2 and Journey, he molded those influences into a sound all his own. He searches for stories and melodies in the people he meets and strives to create music that will stand the test of time.
Pope is now signed with Musik Radio Promotions and is gaining a worldwide following with thousands of stations playing his music all over the world including the ECMA reporting stations.
Pope first contacted Stephen Wrench, President, who listened to his music and remarked, “I couldn’t get it out of my head all day”! Pope comments about Musik and Film, “it’s the professionalism, the pace, and the belief in your artists, that I really love, all awesome things. But what is most important is, I like a plan and forward movement, and you guys have that.”
Greg’s new album, “The Great Unknown”, was released August 1, 2011 and is available on iTunes and CDBaby.
