The new Gregory Page album ‘Shine Shine Shine’ was written while he was in Australia in 2011.
At GregoryPage.com, Gregory tells the story of his next album, to be released in Europe next month.
“My new album “Shine Shine Shine” will be released across Europe, starting in Holland September 14th. This is a very special occasion to strike up the band & I hope you can be a part of the celebration,” he writes. “I wrote this collection of songs for the Big Band while on tour in Australia in the Spring of 2011. As an independent artist, the thought of putting this album together seemed daunting. At breakfast one morning with my longtime friend songwriter Tom Brosseau he told me about an on-line fundraising web site. The album was entirely funded by my fans all around the world so a studio date was set for December 8th 2011. I commissioned the young, up and coming composer Chirs Fullford-Brown to arrange & write the charts for the 22 piece Brad Steinwehe Orchestra (Aretha Franklin, Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra). An all star cast of some of the finest Big Band musicians in Southern California. Featuring soloist trumpet virtuoso Gilbert Castellanos, recognized as a new American master by Downbeat Magazine. As well as Legendary upright bassist Bob Magnanson (Ella Fitzgerald, Buddy Rich). Recorded & mixed by the young rising star Kellogg Boynton (Anoushka Shankar) in San Diego’s premier recording facility, Studio West, owner & co-producer Peter Dyson provided a relaxed atmosphere to record such an ambitious album. It took a committed team of talented individuals to complete “Shine, Shine, Shine” and now with a new found partnership with European Company, Continental Coast skies the limit and I’m excited for new music lovers to discover an album that is so good you have to say it three times”.
