Though GRECO has spent years saturated in music and performance, it is the release of their latest EP – ALL THE THINGS YOU WANT - that will mark their true musical statement to the world.
Within the walls of All the Things You Want, Greco’s discovery sails alive as their compelling combination of rich pop layers among mixed styles of rhythm and blues, rock and soul. By melding hook-filled melody within hard and heavy beats, Greco shows their ability to compact a vast array of influence and experience into a singular …
Through aligning their unwavering dedication to the do-it-yourself work ethic with a signature sound, lead vocalist/guitarist Johann Greco, bassist Zach Greco, keyboardist Sebastian Greco, drummer Gabriel Greco, guitarist Josh Usalavage (yes, four of them are brothers) have helped to define the landscape of today’s post-modern rock music scene. The backbone of their work? Stylistically eclectic songs—suggesting a range of influences from The Rolling Stones, INXS, Prince and Rod Stewart—that captivate their audiences with their unshakable enthusiasm and inescapable sass. Their energy is a fuel that burns full-throttle, ignited by the heat of their soulful voices and the power and passion of their performance.
Hailing from Athens, Georgia –the breeding ground of musical legends– Greco’s musical flair involved three decades worth of influence that goes into their writing. Singer / Songwriter Johann Greco brings his brand of genre-bending musicology into everything captured on stage and in the studio. Johann’s penmanship blends such geniuses as David Bowie, Robert Plant and Sting, and harmonizes the guitar gods and frontmen of the 60s, 70s and 80s. Power-pop hooks with rock & roll attitude sum up Greco’s presence on stage and in their style that fans just cannot ignore.
Phrases turn, emotions connect, and melodies soar. You sing along even though you've never heard the tune before. These musical ministers sing from a perspective of distances, of interludes between lovers and lives and the roads that lead from small towns to big cities. Greco is living proof that raw talent, ambition and honesty can still prevail in our industry. Sensual. Electric. Infectious.
Five Shot Jack is a Birmingham, AL based rock -n- roll quartet grounded in blues & oozing w/ soul. FSJ was founded in early 2012 by Kelen Rylee (Liars & Lovers - Athens, Ga), Brandon Allison (Alamantra - B'ham), & Adam Kirby (Rowe - B'ham) with the addition of Emily McLeod on vocals shortly thereafter. In Fall 2012, the band parted ways with good friend Brandon Allison & welcomed Blake Bolton (Rowe - B'ham) on the drums. Combining elements of roots rock n' roll, blues and funk with huge vocals and four part harmonies, Five Shot Jack promises you an in-your-face, pedal-to-the-floor experience from the word "go".
Five Shot Jack - you want some.
