"Darryl Salach of Target Audience Magazine"

"There is something special happening in the Great Canadian North and his name is Gregory Patrick McLaughlin... (he) has pledged to help make known the thriving arts community in Canada’s Arctic by making a major contribution to the music industry. He has some great songs to help him with his endeavor such as the song ‘Heady Hollow’ which has some remarkable melody sections on the vocal, which are very reminiscent of early Simon and Garfunkel. If you’re looking for an artist with vision and talent, give Gregory Patrick McLaughlin a listen."
