Greg Neufeld – The Music
Fans of the television program Canadian Idol will know who Greg Neufeld is. Go back to season 5, Greg who had never been in the “bottom 3” on the show that season shockingly found himself there next to his friend Brian Melo (Winner of Season 5) and Carly Rae Jepsen (Finished 3rd). All 3 were considered to be the best of bunch. Sadly one had to go home and Greg found himself on the chopping block. Many believed there was an error in the voting system or some sort of mistake. But there was nothing that could be done about it as he finished 7th.
Well now Greg is back with a new CD called “The Music“. After many years of performing with his band Dimarco (who had opened for many bands like Stabilo, Default, Hedley, and Matthew Good) Greg decided to go solo. You can feel Greg’s influences in his album such as John Mayer, Jason Mraz, and Dave Matthews. But yet Greg finds his own sound. Where some tracks have the strong acoustic feel where others have a fun pop rock sound.
For his debut album Greg does a excellent job of delivering catchy well written songs that are sure to please fans of this genre.
