"Stories from the Southside"

" Local guitarist Gregg Standridge is possessed of a bone-weary, road-hardened voice that evokes far more than any lyric ever could - it's this distinctive wounded tenor that binds together the ten tracks comprising the Gregg Standridge Band's sophomore record, "Southside Songs and Stories."

With help from numerous local luminaries - guitarist Wess McMichael, bassist Steve Tillman, drummer Dean Brown, violinist Natasha Nottoli, guitarist/mandolin player Terry "Buffalo" Ware and guitarist/keyboardist Brian Eads - Standridge builds compelling, rustic portraits that linger lovingly in your speakers; "Devil Won't Dance" features some truly beautiful mandolin work from Ware and "Blue Hat is the perfect dose of melancholy.

Recorded at Three Legged Dog studios in Norman, Standridge has made an album great for curling up with some blustery winter night - it's a record that is best appreciated in front of a crackling fire with someone you love.

"New Release"

Norman singer/songwriter Gregg Standridge's Red Dirt caked vocals deliver skillfully crafted lyrics on his latest self-released album. Sounding a bit like James McMurtry and singing with an accent that allows him to rhyme "bar" with "wire" ("Circus"), the title alludes to the narrative quality Standridge inserts into each track. While the vocal delivery and content remain consistent, the disc freely roams a wide range of musical styles across ten tracks. From the Willie Nelson-esque "Rupert and Jim" to the frantic ska of "Circus" and the funk of "Do AS Your Told" (sic), Standridge is hard to peg in one style. The variety present may have something to do with his enlistment of several local musicians, including Wess McMichael, Alan Orebaugh (Wide Mouth,) Dean Brown (Mystery Dates) and Terry "Buffalo" Ware.

About Gregg Standridge Band
I began playing drums when I was 12 and switched to mandolin when I was 15. My good friend Paul Hendrix showed me the basic chords, a few Woody and Dylan tunes on guitar and passed along a few basic theory skills so I could start learning to play songs from recordings. Played and sang cover songs for about 6 years and then was fortunate enough to get to study music in college. Over time I earned a Masters Degree in classical guitar performance from Oklahoma City University. I gig and teach guitar at a private studio in Norman Oklahoma with a group of incredible players who also play in the band.

The goal is to write and perform honest songs. I am too old to win the battle of the bands and I am selective about where I go.
