Wasting Daylight EP soon

October 7, 2010

Samuel Gregg’s Debut EP ,”Wasting Daylight”, is in final stages of production. The three-song teaser EP should be available late this year. “I’ve been in the process of writing a full-length for a while and simply got impatient for folks to hear it…I’ve basically decided to release the B-sides first with a Dave Rawlings-esque live in-studio feel…”.
