GMx: rocking out on the cover of LEO!
Long time Forum member and Superfan GMx is featured in the cover story of the alternative weekly Louisville Eccentric Observer (LEO). It's a great interview, spanning Greg's humble origins growing up by a cement plant, covering his early music and influences, to his "Great Dry Spell" where he took a hiatus from music and explored graphics design. It was here he was introduced to computers, and that, along with the emergence of the iPod, re-awakened the music in him.
Greg is making up for the dry spell, and has a ton of projects going. "I have an album called Kerry that I want to put out, because it's been sitting around for about two and a half years, and I just want to get it out. Also, I have another album waiting to be released called F**k Singer that's folk- and country-oriented originals and some covers. Right now, I'm working on something called Recycler. It's harder edged and loud with a big beat."
His current release, Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, is a collection of his early material and live performances. It's available at Barnes & Noble's Hurstbourne Lane, Louisville, Kentucky locations, as is his album Goin' Down To Rahway (also available in downloadable form at iTunes, Napster and Verizon.)
Check out the interview here, and the podcast here, and be sure to visit Greg online at MySpace, or just say hi to him on the Forums! And of course, he made an appearance in one of our Joy of Tech comics too!
