Gregg Karukas – Soul Secrets

So often you can admire Gregg Karukas as a live musician, so rare are the releases of his albums. Gregg comments: “I have struggled with the time and energy to make the best music possible, given my other productions, family matters and touring schedule. I chose to release Soul Secrets indie (under my own label Nightowl Records, which owns all but 3 of my 12 solo releases) because it is the right time for this and it is better for the integrity of the project. This is the trend that is a very positive thing for artists and fans, thanks to the internet.″

The project was worth it. The CD is packed with 14 original compositions. Supported by Rick Braun, Euge Groove, Vincent Ingala, Ricardo Silveira, Michael O’Neill, James Harrah, Adam Hawley, Eric Valentine, Nate Phillips, Charlie Bisharat, Luis Conte, Shelby Flint and Ron Boustead this is a win-win situation.
