Philadelphia blues/rock guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Greg Sover debut album "Songs of a Renegade"

Since Philadelphia’s blues/rock guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Greg Sover released his debut album, Songs of a Renegade, he has received radio support from award-winning AAA radio station WXPN, and has headlined shows at venerable listening rooms including World Cafe Live in Philadelphia, Sellersville Theater, Puck in Doylestown, PA, Steel City Coffeehouse in Phoenixville, PA and outdoor festivals including Eagleview in Exton, PA. WXPN continues to play Greg’s “Moment” and the band’s interpretation of Bill Withers’ classic “Ain’t No Sunshine.”

The power of Songs of a Renegade and Sover’s early success is due in large part to his band of three Philly veterans with extensive resumes – bassist, musical director and album co-producer Garry Lee, guitarist Allen James and drummer Tom Walling. The three are best known as Deb Callahan’s solid backing band and their cohesiveness as a unit has enabled Sover to develop as an artist and connect his music to a wider audience.

In conjunction with expanded touring in the Northeast, Greg will be adding a brand new song to his repertoire – “My City” inspired by his home in Philadelphia, which pays tribute to the streets and neighborhoods that inform his music. Always writing, Greg and the band will return to the studio for more recording in 2017.

Some people were born to play the guitar. That seems to be the case with Greg Sover, who taught himself by watching videos of Stevie Ray Vaughn and Jimi Hendrix starting at age 5. Backed by some of the best in Philly – Allen James, Garry Lee and Tom Walling, this is a band on the rise. “Moment,” “Déjà Vu” and their cover of “Ain’t No Sunshine” are highlights of the CD “Songs of a Renegade.” See them live in area clubs now! – Cyndy Drue, Radio Personality, WMGK, Philadelphia

Greg Sover was one of the biggest hits of my summer 2016. A clean, polished album and a nasty, guitar-heavy live show. His set at Eagleview took everyone by surprise... but knowing the A-Team involved in this project and Greg's musical abilities, it shouldn't have been. – Jesse Lundy, Talent Buyer, Point Entertainment

Greg Sover’s CD, Songs of a Renegade, lines up 9 excellent, original songs and the best cover of Bill Withers’ “Ain’t No Sunshine” I have yet to hear. Greg is a must see live and is now on my list of new favorite artists! – Dawn Slade, General Manager, Sellersville Theater
