ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Press
"...Nagy has the stuff.... There's psychological depth and narrative momentum to his singing, and his blues guitar playing rings true in a personal way, even when in the spirit of Albert King or Jimmy Johnson. In addition, Nagy's songwriting is studded with winning connections to blues, r&b, soul, gospel, jazz, rock, country. The pan-stylistic title track is richer than a creme de cacao..."
Frank-John Hadley
DOWNBEAT

"The elusive boundaries where blues ends and r & b, gospel, jazz, rock & roll or pop begins make up a fine thin line. In his life and on his debut CD, songwriter, vocalist and guitarist Greg Nagy walks it with hard-won aplomb, assurance and accomplishment...His vocals and picking are both soulful, emotive, concise and powerful without the need for overstatement or pyrotechnics; his skills are used in the service of the song, although as the title track, “For The Love Of A Woman” and “Jenny, Jenny, Jenny” illustrate, the hot licks are always on call when appropriate... WALK THAT FINE THIN LINE fully introduces Greg Nagy and his music, with a rich personal statement, finely honed and crafted, deeply felt, and well worth close attention. Nagy had best start now clearing more space in his scrapbook and on the awards shelf..."

"...Greg Nagy has put together a complete package as singer, guitarist, songwriter, producer, band leader, and fulfills each role with talent and confidence as he walks that fine line of the complete artist. "

"Hey Greg,
Loving the sound of your new solo CD...every track is a winner, even one of my 12 y.o. daughters gives it the thumbs up of approval. I featured it with several Root Doctor tracks yesterday on the show and had several phone calls from people who said they loved your guitar work and vocals. Some beautiful songwriting also Greg...thanks for sending such wonderful work, hope it does well for you. I think there should be awards bestowed upon you for this wonderful CD."

"...., I really like the GREG NAGY release, it's in heavy rotation..."
John Kessler

"...Wow, it was so cool to see your name on the CD cover. I knew you're good by listening to Root Doctor's releases but with this solo one you have set the bar quite high. It's hard to give a specific name to this music that mixes blues with soul, jazz and r'n'b. I would simply [call it] good time music played right. All is here: catchy songs with clever lyrics and beautiful melodies, deep groove and first class interplay between musicians. I love the way you focus on the song instead of showing off your guitar licks, that is quite rare. With Walk That Fine Thin Line it will be a pleasure for me to show my listeners that Greg Nagy of Root Doctor fame is ready for some nice solo career!"

"...I messaged Mr Greg Nagy to send me his recent solo release Walk That Fine Thin Line... What struck me about this record is how impressive [his] voice is. Did anybody say SOUL!!! This Greg Nagy has it... "

"I think its a great CD, too...I've been stealin' some guitar licks off of it and thats about the highest compliment I can give...And yes, Greg's singing voice is very cool...I'm planning on booking a Greg Nagy show here in Madison in the fall, which I'm looking forward to already."

"...Walk That Fine Thin Line succeeds with strong songcraft, tasty guitar work, and expressive vocals."
Tom Hyslop

"Greg is simply a FEROCIOUS guitar player, who manages to draw from a deep well of influences and inspirations without really sounding like anybody else...."

"...an impressive solo outing...powerful guitar work on a passel of genre-bending, soulful, bluesy gems."
John Sinkevics
Grand Rapid Press

"Flint, Michigan native Greg Nagy plays a tasty guitar and has a fine soulful voice. The CD boasts some nice production and a good band. Nagy's a fresh talent on the blues scene in the Midwest to watch."

"...[Greg]Nagy croons and plays some crazy-good guitar with plenty of soul and emotion..."
Anne Erikson
Lansing State Journal

"...With a voice so natural for the blues and guitar playing that stands amongst the finest anywhere, that fine thin line is a mile-wide when it comes to Greg Nagy. Outstanding! Highly recommended!"
Gregory Johnson
Cascade Blues Society Portland, OR

"...Greg can play anything he wants to guitar wise, but it's his voice that's heart stopping... On She's My Baby [from Walk That Fine Thin Line] you hear him at his most authentic. A little Levon Helm, Rick Danko and Richard Manuel all rolled into one."
