Greg Attonito (Bouncing Souls) Announces Debut Solo Album Out July 12th on Chunksaah Records
What a life - from sweat-soaked basements to sun-drenched outdoor festivals; making music with his band The Bouncing Souls, his wife Shanti, his contemporaries; making art, making food and making the most of every second. It’s the life of Greg Attonito - world famous rock frontman, children’s author, athlete and life enthusiast;. a creative wellspring who has learned over time to become timeless, invoking the same spirits as history’s great minstrels, jesters and Renaissance men.
With all the layers of Attonito’s creative resume to consider, it’s sort of perfect that his new solo record, "Natural Disaster," is an exercise in simplicity. These songs capture an intangible combination of spirits old and new - they're wistful, intimate, plaintive.. A waking dream of the most genuine kind, because Greg is a dreamer of the highest order.
"I'm happy I've been able to capture the vulnerable, sweet and loving parts of myself in these songs," says Attonito. "Its been liberating to let those parts of myself go."
So tell your ears to pack a bag, because they are going on a trip. And getting there is all the fun. - Ronen Kaufman
