Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Greg Johnson

Me & Joanna

2007-03-06

Contrary to the disco inspired cover... this is simple, well done piano singer-songwriter stuff. Greg Johnson's voice sounds an awful lot like Chris Martin of Coldplay, and his sound wavers between that atmospheric emotional moody music and Simon & Garfunkel's sensible, straightforward songwriting approach. I also hear influences from Aha, Toto, Billy Joel, and Springsteen (listen for "Walking in Memphis" on "Love is the Underdog") Standout tracks: 3, 5, 9 and 11 (Olive)
