“Singer and author Gregg Garvey is one of the last romantics of our day. You just want to put all your gadgets aside, open the door and feel the rustle of grass under your feet. The song Minot sounds in my head, and my fingers beat beat after beat. Life will never be the same again.”

“Певец и автор Gregg Garvey один из последних романтиков наших дней. Так и хочется отложить все гаджеты в сторону, распахнуть дверь и почувствовать шелест травы под ногами. В голове звучит песня Minot, а пальцы отбивают такт за тактом. Жизнь уже никогда не будет прежней.”

Titled after a town in North Dakota, the song is an inward reflection on first loves, first pursuits of dreams, and finding one’s own bravery. At the heart of the song is the idea that even if a person fails at first, they have now become someone who made that voyage, and so may make more of them.

Gregg Garvey is a singer and songwriter from Minnesota. Influenced by visionary artists such as Gene Clark, David Sylvian and ‘60s-era Scott Walker, Gregg’s music is a mix of dreamy Baroque pop and vintage rock soul.
