Indie blues, singer-songwriter, guitarist - Greg Sover continues to impress along with his bandmates; bassist Garry Lee, guitarist Allen James and drummer Tom Walling.
The release of the band's debut album, Songs of a Renegade & sophomore follow up, Jubilee, continue to garner praise as the records have successfully charted on Roots Top 50 Blues Rock stations. The group is currently in the studio tracking their next album, Parade, due out in January 2020.
The band represented the Phoenixville Blues Society chapter and appeared in Memphis, TN in January 2019, reaching the semi-finals for the second year in a row at the International Blues Challenge. Over 200 plus bands from US, Canada and the UK competed throughout the week.
Additionally, the Greg Sover Band continues to support renowned blues-rock artists including the Yardbirds, Jeffrey Gaines, Jimmy Vivino, Tommy Conwell & the Young Rumblers, Johnny A, Ana Popovic, Walter Trout, Sonny Landreth, Popa Chubby, Marcus King Band and Davy Knowles, while continuing to attract a growing and loyal following after each appearance.
And the great reviews for “Jubilee” have begun:
“Sover’s new E.P. is a follow-up to his awesome 2016 debut, ‘Songs of a Renegade.’ This is an extremely well-played gaggle of tunes, blues and otherwise, a true celebration… Greg Sover is a solid singer, emotional without giving in to histrionics, and he’s a really freakin’ good guitar player… Sover and his guys pack a lot of emotional oomph into the 7 tracks that make up Jubilee. Great songs that really touch you where it counts…” «««««

“The Blues comes in many, many variants and we will each have our favourite format; but the slick voiced singer and red hot guitarist easily straddles the Soulful Rhythm and Blues style that I’ve loved for 40+ years. Think a pumped up George Benson or Robert Cray…”
