Chasing the moon with aluminum cans

That summer slipped by so fast, like grains through an hourglass”

The tone remains fresh throughout and the delightful piano solo has us floating through our own special moment and memory.
There is something about Greg Bates’ music that instantly lifts your spirits, and you find yourself humming his tunes long after they end. He has the drive and personality of a true country artist, which continues to show throughout his music.
“Sand” will be only the start to a much deserved, long and successful career.
