Gregory M. Hurley
I started playing gigs in 1968, It was only junior high school dances but at the time, it was electrifying. In 1964, I remember watching “The Ed Sullivan Show” and seeing the Beatles perform live. They pretty much jump started my interest in music, Long hair, guitars and Beatle boots, very cool, still cool. I have always enjoyed good harmony parts and George’s slide work has always inspired me. Now it’s all about writing,recording, having some fun and being a part of Sound Cloud.
Three of my fav producers would be Jeff Lynne, Mark Hudson and of course Sir George Martin. As far as guitar players, great hooks Keith Richards, best tone Eric Clapton, best feel SRV! Best slide guitar George Harrison, Sonny Landreth and Ry Cooder. Most creative exploration Eric Johnson. The most original and inspiring Mr. Jeff Beck, he is amazing.
Greg Hurley’s passion for harmonies and guitar began when he was 10 years old. Inspired by the Beatles, his life long love of music and his pursuit of playing it, was enabled by his brother, who gave him his ﬁrst guitar, an acoustic that allowed him to practice and delve further into his growing devotion to creation and performance.
By his early teens, he formed a band and began playing gigs. Although his audience at that time was made up of Junior High kids, the electrifying experience of playing live further ignited his passion. Eventually he grew as a musician and with inﬂuences such as George Harrison, Eric Clapton, Steely Dan, Jeff Lynne and many others. After high school Greg devoted himself to his craft, his band and live performance.
Although the need for stability and a “real” job came with family and life responsibilities, he still played with a band as often as possible. After 16 years he “semi-retired” from playing live and focused on building a home studio. Over the last 8 years he has been writing, recording and producing on his own, melting together all his learnings from playing classic rock and blues. The result: his debut album titled “SEAFOAM”.
