"Greg Dutton Brings his Musical "Assault" to the Ohio Valley"

Generation's Pub, located on National Road in the Fulton section of Wheeling, is presenting "Greg Dutton and the Assault Brothers" next Wednesday evening (July 28).

A former architecture student at Miami University of Ohio, Dutton recently returned from a stint in New York City were he was making a living as a furniture maker in a Hoboken, New Jersey wood shop. At night he was moonlighting across New York City in clubs previously frequented by the likes of Beck and Will Oldham.

While living in New York, the singer/songwriter went into the studio with a group of musicians he met at the Williamsburg, Brooklyn hangout, Pete's Candy Store. Those recordings would become Dutton's three song EP, Two Ballads and a Country Honk.

Upon returning home, Dutton formed a band, "The Assault Brothers," consisting of Ryan "Fuji" Smith (guitar, etc.); Dom Liberati (bass); and drummer B.C. Taylor, son of popular tri-state musician B.E. Taylor.

An admirer of indie rock as well as classic country, Dutton lists Beck, The Jayhawks, Wilco, and Neil Young as consistent influences.

The band will perform two sets beginning at 9 p.m. - The Times Leader

Bio

A songwriter in the mold of Jeff Tweedy, Bruce Springsteen, or Steve Earle, Greg Dutton relies heavily on traditional music to build songs that are sparse yet equally mindful of melody. His work draws from the same inspiration that had the Beatles covering Buck Owens and Waylon Jennings singing Norwegian Wood. As Dutton’s songs dangle between folk starkness and straight pop, they are steadied by his weighty voice and consistent finger work.

Raised on a farm in the Ohio Valley, Dutton formed his first band to perform in a high school variety show before moving on to study architecture at the Miami University of Ohio. Upon graduating he spent time living in New York City’s East Village testing his talent in the city’s singer/songwriter circles.

While in New York he recorded the country leaning EP, Two Ballads and a Country Honk, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. And soon Greg will be heading back into the studio to record a collection of songs with his new band The Assault Brothers.
