Melodically powerful and heartfelt, the stunning debut album ‘Hooked On You‘ is set for release by the formidable Greg McLeish Group. Blues and rock tinged with strains of Bob Dylan, Jimmy Page and Blind Willie Johnson coupled with the sweet gospel sound of Sarah Brown and Petra Luke’s exceptional voices make this record very special indeed!
Greg McLeish is a rhythm & blues survivor and ‘Hooked On You’ is the end product of years of playing, composing and recording.
Recorded at the legendary Air Studios, Lyndhurst, the album includes contributions from the cream of London’s session players including B.J.Cole (slide guitar), Danny Cummings (Dire Straits), Chris Worsey (cello) and Andy Findon (sax & flute). Featured on many of the songs including the title track are the vocals of gospel queen Sarah Brown (Simple Minds, Roxy Music).
