Benson Boone – Beautiful Things

What a song!! What a singer – so much soul and heart and it hits you in the gut. It’s my anthem atm!

Sheppard – Edge Of The Earth

This has to be the war work of the year – don’t ask me to name all the cities haha but such a great energised track – love these guys!

Tania Doko – Harder Now

Bachelor Girl royalty but this time it’s off her solo record – such a great track that really makes me feel inspired and what a vocalist. Fun fact Tania wrote my previous single – a duet with Morissette called ‘Love It All Out’ such a special track.

Ricki-Lee – On My Own

Gives me chills this song cos I really relate to it – such a great vocal and did u see her live performance on Australian Idol – she was on fire (well literally too!) lol – Ricki-Lee is one of my fave vocalists.

Teddy Swims – Lose Control

I’ve loved Teddy since the viral Dont Stop Believing and his duet with Meghan Trainor but this album is EVERYTHING – what an emotional, gut wrenching, beautiful gift direct from the soul he has.

Greg’s latest single, Who Gave You Permission is available now.
