Gregg Danton
“In the 1950’s the electric blues of Muddy Waters and Bo Diddley had only a very small dedicated following of British teen-agers.
One of them was Alexis Korner, who along with Cyril Davies ,opened a blues club where they could play American blues.
Korner started a band (Blues Incorporated) from which many young artists came - names we know now -as members of the Rolling Stones, Animals, and Yardbirds.
The British blues-school’s grateful use of the new guitar amplifier- made experimenting
natural, along with that of a more hallucinogenic nature ,thus giving birth to
some of British Blues most notorious- Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Fleetwood Mac.
This singer-songwriter, and moreover multi-intrumentalist is best savoured!”

Gregg Danton
Demo [3 Tracks]
1. Twistertown
2. Lose The Shoes
3. Just The Fire

Gregg Danton is a keen, talented musician. On his 3 track CD, he plays - sax, harmonica, guitar, bass and sings., with a guest (Terry Crawford) playing the drums. His sound is that of a blues genre, with a husky voice to match.

The American artist has gone for the more livelier blues style that you hear pumping out of dingy basement bars with people clapping, hootering and hollering along. The sax is great, very expressive and plays a big part in the songs. His songs have an 80's/early 90's sound to them and sometimes sound a bit like Status Quo.

The 3 songs could do with more impact from the instruments though as they sometimes sound a bit empty and hollow. If you fancy some gritty blues to get you going, this could be the stuff you need.

Gregg Danton started out, much like any teen today, thrashing it out in the basement..dreaming…not even sure what instrument it would be- just knowing music was “it”.
Learning to play the hard way by trial and error, fine tuning his musical ear, shunning theory and sight reading in favour of developing his own style on harmonica, sax ,flute, keys,vocals ,
and more the plan was to avoid the dreaded “day job”.
Thus began “his apprenticeship” logging in the miles and years playing in countless Top 40 and Tribute bands that would finally lead to sharing stage and studio with the likes of :
Moon /Minglewood, Jim Foster, Kentish Steele&The Shantelles Idyll Eyes, Colin James, Frank Soda, Goddo and Paul James.
Opening/support act opportunities eventually came about for:
Jesse Colin Young (Youngbloods), Harlequin, the late Long John Baldry and reggae icon Burnin Spear.
Playing sax with reggae bands Asiyah and Frank Carroll and Hit Squad gave Gregg a taste for playing original material and this inspired him to write.
The idea was to write tunes to showcase his instrumental soloist ability on sax, harmonica and flute the evolving tunes, however, took on a life of their own.
Gregg’s guitar based original material can be found worldwide on blues friendly F.M. and internet broadcast playlists He has been licensed to internet T.V. and European music services and
was offered an opening slot for Edgar Winter playing originals.
