Whether reliving sweet memories or bidding a bitter farewell, the saddest love songs are universal, sharing emotions to which we can all relate. And the best (or worst?) of them are those we can't quite make it through without shedding a few tears. Greg adds "I try to write songs that most anyone can relate to at one time or another. If you give it a decent listen I think it can bring you simple gifts."

"Sentimental, perhaps, honest, but almost approaching defiant. Easy songs from foot stompin romps to mellow pickin ballads. One of the most listenable CDs out there. Part folkrock, bluegrass, folk, but all Americana" - CD Baby


"Provo is the newest sound to come out of Jersey. The Princeton packet says, "A can't miss performer!!"" - Princeton Packet


“Provo is a salesman based in New Jersey. Maybe that’s how he comes by his stories for this guy, a singing storyteller in the tradition of Tom T. Hall really knows how to spin a tale. Sitting back listening to Provo’s easy on the ear vocals, backed by astute use of dobro, mandolin, fiddle and banjo, ‘Change in Direction’ is a personal experience, sharing a walk on the ‘Streets of Cicero’, staring at ‘Italian Night skies’, and listening to ‘Grand Ma’s Words’. Wonderful stories beautifully performed. Can’t resist pushing the repeat button for ‘Drinker’s Lament’.” - Pete Smith, Country Music Round up, Great Britain.


“Great sit back, close your eyes and listen to the great lyrics and music” - Kis Country, Denmark


“Super album- What a writer” ROG Radio-Netherlands - ROG Radio- Netherlands


“Provo takes album of the week here! Great album” - JRR International, Ireland


“Provo has a style all his own- great songs too.” - Frequence Verte, France


“Beautiful voice and fine collection of songs” - Micron Radio, Belgium


"I keep saying this, but those of you who did not get out last Tuesday for the Jam for Life Tuesday night at The Ivy event really missed a fantastic night of music. Our thanks go out to Greg Provo and the band...THEY WERE AWESOME! I can't remember having so many people come up to me to say how much they liked the band...it was some great "Americana"....Papa Carl - Jam For Life Foundation
