Album Notes
Greg Hobbs is a Toronto-based singer-songwriter whose often sardonic outlook, and poetic yet down to earth lyrics, bring a fresh perspective to the folk-rock, roots-country genres.

Born in Hamilton, Ontario, Hobbs was brought up in a musical family, playing various instruments since the age of four. He has been composing and performing ever since.

He has played music for live theatre, studied classical saxophone, and released four independent solo CDs in Canada: Under Your Feet (1994), Confused and Bleeding (1999), Drake Motel (2001), and Threats & Promises (2004).

For the past four years Hobbs has been building a following while playing clubs and festivals all over Ontario, as well as bars in New York, San Francisco and Nashville.

In his current hometown he was named one of the "local must sees" by the Toronto Star. He has played with gigs with uber-troubadour Fred Eaglesmith, Victoria based country-diva Carolyn Mark, Blue Rodeo's Bob Egan, and True North artist Joel Kroeker.

Hobbs' newest CD, Threats & Promises, has received excellent write-ups in Eye Magazine, The Toronto Star, Penguin Eggs and various web publications. According to CBC Radio One's Matthew Crosier: "If you like roots music... you can't miss this one."

This is stunning stuff.
This is stunning stuff. If you like roots music you can't miss this one.

MT Laderoute

You don't wanna miss this one.
Threats and Promises is another wonderful Greg Hobbs CD with some of the finest lyrics you'll find anywhere. A great vocal performance from a gifted writer. Don't miss out on this one.

Paul Wilson

Great country-tinged music with subtle Canadian humour
Friends recommended this album to me so I bought it. It is totally entertaining and I have kept it in my player for 3 weeks. I recommend you listen to the lyrics. Clever and funny with a few deep songs like What Sandra Said. You won't regret this one. Beautiful Girls will make you want to sing.
