In 2008/09 Greg went to the acclaimed Studio In The Country (Bogalusa, LA) and after a few sessions had recorded 7 songs.
Over the next 4 years he was very busy touring with various groups and consequently these tracks were set aside for a bit.
In May of 2013 he returned to SITC with producer/engineer Ben Mumphrey to record 6 more songs, once again playing all the instruments himself. The culmination of these sessions, along with a track recorded in NYC can be heard on the 10 song release, "Siamese Connection".
Sadly, on June 27, 2017 David Rosser passed away after an intense battle with colon cancer. A few months later this immeasurable loss lead to a wave of inspiration and new songs came into focus.
In the fall of 2017, Greg ventured back into the studio with Dan Iead, Pete Remm and Josh Lattanzi to record the 6 song EP, "Pictures With Captions". Recorded at Degraw Sound in Brooklyn, this offering was engineered/mixed by Ben Rice and released on 3/31/18.
