What to Expect
Gregory's live performances are emotionally captivating and compelling. Whether he's performing solo to an intimate crowd or with a full band to a large audience, Gregory evokes emotional truths that are universally appealing and often transformational for audiences. Gregory's emotive sound and multi-range vocals connect deeply with audiences through song and conversation. His compassionate, magnetic personality resonates powerfully through his performances, and his "keynote concerts" take audiences even further through the exploration of their own self-awareness and creative potential.
Gregory Douglass wants a better world for the future sustainability of independent music. He’s been a pioneer of DIY innovation throughout his indie career as an early adapter of crowdfunding his albums (before Kickstarter was around), streaming live concerts (before Concert Window was around), and performing house concerts in his fan’s living rooms throughout the country.
Now, he’s teamed up with Patreon to help fix what’s currently broken in the industry – a reliable stream of income for artists and creators. “I believe artists membership models like Patreon are on the right path to the future of creative sustainability. Music sales have plummeted but the expenses required to create and release new music remain the same. Artists cannot sustain their craft today without the vital support of their fans.”
His new album My Hero, The Enemy speaks directly to this crucial paradigm which Gregory describes as “The blessing and the curse of creativity in the age of information.” Gregory explains, “It’s also an ode to being a creative person in the digital age, and what a dichotomy it can be. At the same time, every song on My Hero, The Enemy explores the polarity of such emotional struggles, and attempts to expose the underlying truth behind many of life's misconceptions.”
Gregory’s own patrons are currently funding his Live From The Chapel project – a live album and video “rockumentary” in the works. Every song from My Hero, The Enemy was performed live at The Chapel in San Francisco, CA specifically for this project.
