Greg Kavanagh’s latest release, Take It Slow, came to be as a result of his deep appreciation for the Blues. Like the rest of us, Greg found himself grounded during the outbreak of COVID-19. Unable to conduct normal business, Greg began to write some new songs. Technology allowed him to call on a couple of good friends to join in, and he soon found himself in possession of multiple tracks that now take centre stage on this new CD. This excellent new release is quickly finding airtime on select radio stations. Enjoy!
