We are in LOVE just like you will be when you hear this next group!
Joining the City of St Charles RiverFest for the very first (BUT NOT THE LAST) time, Gregory Hyde!!!
Gregory and his band will be on the BMO Harris Bank Main Stage on Saturday, June 13th at 8pm.
We thought it best that Greg introduce himself... so straight from his website, www.gregoryhyde.com, here is his bio....
My name is Gregory Hyde.
...and I am a music addict.
I’ve been a full-time professional musician based in the Chicagoland area for the past 8 years, entertaining fans at concerts, festivals, parties, and the occasional impromptu commuter train jam session.
I picked up a guitar at age 15, skipped college, got a great job that made me miserable, quit, played all over Tulsa, OK (my hometown), developed some chops with local bands, toured the U.S. with a signed group as a backing guitarist/vocalist, performed live on several notable radio shows, had some of my songs placed in award-winning films, documentaries, & cable television shows, have sold over 6,000 copies of my independently produced albums, garnered a Billboard Music World Songwriting Competition award for the Rock category, and still play upwards of 200 solo acoustic shows a year.
I've had the privilege to open shows for artists like 10,000 Maniacs, Sister Hazel, Los Lonely Boys, Edwin McCain, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Tesla, Guster, American Idol winner Lee DeWyze, Air Supply, and many others at venues like The House of Blues as well as the historic Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, TN. Aaaaand I also recently sang the national anthem for The Chicago White Sox at U.S. Cellular Stadium.
My new album, Southern Highway Love Songs, is now available. Check it out in the AUDIO section.
Aside from my melodic habit, I also enjoy listening to heartbeats, books, and Elissa's voice.
