The term “singer/songwriter” is thrown around so loosely today, that it has almost lost it’s meaning. Gregory Brock has earned that title with a permanent place on the charts. His debut EP has already yielded 2 consecutive top 20 songs. “Rainbow In Your Eyes” reached #18 on Billboard’s “Hot Singles Sales” chart in June, 2010, alongside rock and roll legends The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, and Neil Young to name a few. His debut single “She” peaked on the same chart at #19 on 11/22/08, and #18 on Canada’s Top 20 singles on 12/01/08.
He is currently writing music on the soundtrack of the upcoming movie “Cottonwood“, which stars Anthony Michael Hall, Louis Gossett Jr., Alison Eastwood and Joe Perry of the rock group Aerosmith.
“Cottonwood is a very special film that I am proud to be a part of. Set in the depression era of West Texas, this poignant, heartfelt story is filled with mystery, intrigue, and tension, with strong characters including Jack the mule. The images will be stark and haunting as the story is dark. Based on relationships, friendships, death and healing with bonds not to be broken in a racially charged town, with a surprise ending that leaves the audience with lingering emotions, Cottonwood is a compelling film, a classic some say similar to “To Kill a Mockingbird” with the quiet, dignified wisdom of a Horton Foote film. With its strong subject matter, I feel Cottonwood will be viewed by audiences of all ages and will be seen for years to come…”

Gregory has always had an insatiable appetite for music. At an early age he says he “lived for music”. As a songwriter, he draws on the vivid memories, feelings and emotions he felt growing up in California. As far back as he remembers, music had a hypnotic effect on him. He remembers as a young child staring out of the car window desperately trying to block out the sounds of his sibling’s laughter while trying to hear what was playing on the radio. All he wanted to do was to escape into the faraway places it was taking him. He was extremely shy as a kid and music was the medium that would allow him to express himself without reservation.
