The best kept secret in music


"Performing Songwriter Magazine"

"Greg Naughton's collection of homemade demos (hence DemOgogue) and studio recordings is a rough-and-tumble folk-rock gem. The songs have an engaging, broken-down quality that, when combined with Naughton's smooth but world-weary tenor, create a thoroughly enjoyable listen.
Recorded on home equipment as well as at various studios and with guest appearances from former Heartbreaker Stan Lynch and vocalist Phoebe Snow, Naughton has pieced together one hell of a record. Demogogue & the Sun Songs is a constantly surprising romp through the great traditions of modern rock and roll. Naughton is a magnetic writer and performer."

"The New York Resident"

"ONE OF THE BEST 10 SHOWS OF THE YEAR . . . Greg Naughton is one of New York's best kept secrets (not for long). …An impossibly rich singing voice and old-fashioned way with a tune. An extremely crafty song-writer with a treasure trove of original material." - "The Year in Review Round-Up"

"The National Post (of Canada)"

"This New York-based singer-songwriter is blessed on both sides of the hyphen. He's an acrobatic singer, possessing a dynamic range and a voice that balances multi-note runs and aching, explosive moments of catharsis à la Jeff Buckley with simple, unadorned phrasing that suggests James Taylor.

(Naughton) has shaped his influences into a kaleidoscopic signature sound, a soul-infused pop-rock mix . . . 'Demogogue' is this season's strongest contender for rookie of the year. (Rating: 3.5 out of 4 stars)."

Self-released full-length debut "DemOgogue & the Sun Songs" (Various tracks have begun to receive airplay at half-a-dozen known radio stations in as many states)
